  • Catalogue Essay

    -Originally launched in 2005, Breguet's reference 7027 is the first of the Tradition series and displays all the codes the brand is best known for such as Breguet hands, a coin edged bezel and a beautiful guilloché dial.

    -The model subtly features a power reserve indication to the left of the suspended guilloché dial, also visible on the movement side. Incidentally, Abraham-Louis Breguet was the first to use engine-turning to decorate watches in this fashion. The semi-skeletonized dial, so typical of Breguet pocket watches and wristwatches for the past two centuries, is still hand-engraved by the artisans at Breguet, with a frosted effect, heat-blued screws, and hand-bevelled bridges.

    -Offered in excellent and barely worn condition, the watch is accompanied by its original certificate of origin and presentation box.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1775

    Established in 1775 by Abraham Louis Breguet, widely considered the greatest watchmaker of all time, the storied brand continues to thrive in the modern era, creating exceptional high-end watches as the Swatch Group's premier prestige brand. Some of the most important and lasting inventions in watchmaking are attributed to Abraham Louis Breguet, including the tourbillon, shock resistance and the use of hammers and gongs employed in nearly all minute repeating watches made since.

    Eighteenth and nineteenth century Breguet pocketwatches are especially sought-after by collectors, and many of them were made for the elite of European society, including Napoléon and Marie Antoinette. Key wristwatches from the twentieth century include oversized dress watches, two-register chronographs, triple calendars and Type XX aviator's chronographs made for the French military and civilians.
