  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Breguet Tradition lineage has introduced numerous attractive timepieces throughout the years. However, one notable example is the reference 7027, which was first unveiled in 2005 and represents a timeless embodiment of Abraham-Louis Breguet's watchmaking expertise and legacy.

    - Inspired by Breguet's 18th-century pocket watches, a particularly fascinating aspect of this timepiece is the placement of the movement's balance wheel. Traditionally situated on the back of the baseplate, it is now proudly showcased on the dial side. This arrangement allows the wearer to admire the intricate gear trains and the captivating inner workings of the movement.

    - While the movement architecture takes center stage, the main dial adheres to Breguet's classic style, featuring an exquisitely guilloché-finished surface. The elegant silver hue harmonizes with the blue Breguet hands, maintaining the brand's timeless aesthetic. Additionally, the coin-edged case flanks also added another layer of visual depth to the design of the timepiece.

    - Accompanied by its box and certificate, this watch is a rare find in the market and an excellent choice for enthusiasts of classic Breguet timepieces.

  • 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.
