  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2005, the Breguet Tradition pays its rightful homage with an avant-garde yet contemporary approach to Abraham-Louis Breguet’s legacy.

    Iconic and resembling its early creations of the manufacturer, the Tradition is inspired by the firm’s Souscription watches from the late 18th century. With a contemporized approach, the ref. 7037 displays its core organs of the movement on the dial side in a semi-skeletonized style, allowing the wearer to view its intricate craftsmanship and the core fundamentals of a mechanical wristwatch.

    The present example is presented in excellent overall condition with very minimal signs of wear and further accompanied by the original 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.
