    - Reference 3420 is a jump hour watch, launched in 1992 and produced in a 800 piece limited edition in yellow gold of which the present example is number 59.

    - The watch features many of Breguet's signature elements including the coin edge case, elongated lugs, Breguet minutes hand and cabochon on the crown.

    - The present elegant timepiece does not have the traditional guilloché dial found on Breguet timepieces but a superb white grand feu enamel dial on which the secret Breguet signature and case number have been etched and can be seen under a certain light angle.

  • Artist Biography

    Breguet

    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.
