  • Catalogue Essay

    Breguet’s popular Classique Complications line is the modern embodiment of the precision, clarity and elegant lines Abraham-Louis Breguet created for each of his timepieces. A genius watchmaker, Breguet not only brought technical advancements to the field of horology with inventions like the self-winding movement, perpetual calendar mechanism and tourbillon, but also his watches have a classic clean appeal that is as modern today as it was almost 200 years ago. The engine-turned dial is enhanced with the polished chapter ring and blued steel Breguet hands. The perpetual calendar dials are thoughtfully arranged and designed to work in harmony with the moon phase and power reserve. The 36.5mm diameter case’s coin-edge band compliments the engine-turned work of the dial. The present watch is in excellent overall condition and is fine reminder of horology’s long and historical past.

  • 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.
