Breguet, at the crossroads of culture and innovation

All the splendour of truly exceptional horology

Symbolizing a proud historical and cultural heritage, as well as avant-garde technology, Breguet has consistently stimulated genuine fascination through its capacity for innovation.  From the tourbillon to the gong-spring, many of the inventions by Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823) have left their mark on watchmaking history since 1775.

As the enduring benchmark for watchmaking in the great European courts, Breguet has made its way through the ages among illustrious figures such as Marie-Antoinette, Napoleon Bonaparte, Tsar Alexander 1st and Winston Churchill, to mention a few. Acquired by the Swatch Group in 1999, the House of Breguet continues to strengthen its position as an essential stakeholder in today’s watch industry. Its considerable investments in research and development regularly generate new and original innovations representing the very heart of tomorrow’s haute horlogerie.

In the wake of this remarkable heritage and knowledge, Breguet unveils new exceptional timepieces each year, with Grandes Complications standing alongside sublime finishes, such as in the case of the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Squelette 5395 model. For this exceptionally thin piece, the house has opted for an extra-thin three-millimeter thick skeleton design for its tourbillon movement. An undertaking that is as much technical as it is artistic with emphasis on craftsmanship.
