  • Catalogue Essay

    - Released in 2005, the Breguet Tradition Collection pays tribute to the legacy of Abraham-Louis Breguet. One of the most eminent figures in the history of watchmaking and known as the father of modern watchmaking, Breguet is known for his horological achievements from introducing gongs for repeating watches to developing the tourbillon.

    - Taking inspiration from the movement architecture of Breguet’s Souscription watches of the late 18th century, the Tradition displays the magnificent movement through the semi-skeletonized dial, exposing the frosted baseplate and bridges, heat-blued screws, red rubies and golden gear trains. Once powered, the movement is a marvel to behold.

    - The iconic Breguet-style main dial takes centre stage at the 12 o’clock. It is embellished with classic Clous de Paris guilloche and brushed silver outer ring, beneath the blued Breguet hands on top. A power reserve indication of up to 50 hours is discreetly positioned on the upper left of dial, interestingly also visible from the back of the watch through the transparent case back.

    - Supremely elegant and mesmerising, the present example Breguet Tradition ref. 7027 in white gold from circa 2006 is offered with its full set of accessories and is further preserved in excellent overall condition.

    - Please note that the proceeds of the sale of the present watch will be given by the Consignor to various charities.

  • 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.
