Breguet Rattrapante Chronographs, Ref 3497 and 5947.

Avatar

If you are a Chronograph Fan, you certainly know that manual winding Rattrapantes are pretty scarce. The Breguet Rattrapante is not the most famous one, the stars begin Patek and Lange on that matter. Still, the Breguet Rattrapante deserves to be known. I had the pleasure to see the Reference 3497 some days ago, in Paris...Story

Nicolas posted about it yesterday: last Wednesday, Breguet organized a party to close the Classic Tour day organized in Paris. But what is the Classic Tour? Actually, it was organized in Paris after a first edition in London several months ago. The aim of this Tour is to invite clients and journalists to discover the key locations which symbolize Breguet's life and achievements and which create a focus on high-end craftsmanship. It is the reason why the guests could visit the mythical Breguet locations in .....Story

Breguet 1775 225th Anniversary Watch. A quick review.

Avatar
amanico
The Breguet 1775 is a watch I owned for some years, and which I let go, with some retrospective regrets. Finding another one is an impossible mission, as I rarely saw one for sale during all these last years, two, to be precise, and the one I just photographed is one of these two. This is a pure Breguet, in my opinion, delicate, exquisite, refined. Everything, every detail on this watch oozes refinement: The case, with its godrons all around, has ideal dimensions for a watch of this class, with a diameter .....Story

Breguet Type XX Transatlantique Platinum Salmon Dial, Limited Edition 14th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
Yes, you read well, I had to check the date I purchased this watch as I couldn't believe 14 years have passed, already. In May 2004, during a trip in Sicily, I was fortunate to fall on this Breguet Type XX Transatlantique in platinum, with its gorgeous salmon dial which is made in rose gold. That was a totally unexpected encounter, truth to be told. I was aware that such a version existed, unveiled the same year or in 2003, but I never saw one in the flesh...Story

The Complication of the Universe: The Breguet Marine Équation Du Temps Marchante Ref. 5887 - Mastering Positional Astronomy of our Solar System - on your wirst!

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
With the Ref. 5887 , Breguet has introduced a real gem of an astronomic (or shall I better state: solar-system?) timepiece: an Équation Du Temps Marchante (or in English: a running equation-of-time complication). Such a complication is a natural complement to a perpetual calendar, as it adds the correct (solar) minute indication to the correct date display enabled by more correct calendar function - correct as seen from the solar system's point of view, that is. This complication, however, has mostly spent .....Story

BaselWorld 2016: Breguet presents 2 outstanding Reine de Naples: Perles Impériales & 9818

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
In my personal opinion the Breguet Reine de Naples is the sole personification of a lady's watch. During BaselWorld 2016 the l’Abbaye-based manufacture once more demonstrated this position with the introduction of two new variants of this model, the masterfully crafted Reine de Naples Perles Impériales & the more casually elegant Reine de Naples 9818 . Both are jewellry watches with an astounding amount of artisanship in conception and execution: 1.) Reine de Naples Perles Impériales : This is the luxurious ... ...Story

Baselworld 2016: Breguet

Avatar
foversta
Breguet presented during the 2016 edition of the Baselworld fair a quite comprehensive new collection. I will not say that it is spectacular because there isn't inside a true new model or complication. But Breguet made sure that each pillar of its collection was positively impacted with a special focus on ladies' watches. If I could summarize the Breguet offer in a few words, I could say that it is the image of the fair: nothing really spectacular or new but some clever additions or changes...Story

Recently I had the chance to attend an exclusive event organised by the Breguet Boutique in Vienna which celebrated the 200 th Anniversary of both the landmark Congress of Vienna and the adjacent Battle of Waterloo , as seen from the perspective of the key players – all of them separated by nationality and interests, but united in their love for Breguet timepieces . One of them, Breguet N° 1693 , owned by Polish politician Count Stanislas Potocki , is of particular importance as it can be seen as ancestor ... ...Story

Tourbillon Day at the Breguet Beverly Hills Boutique - June 26th!

Avatar
AnthonyTsai
Yesterday Friday June 26th, I attended the Tourbillon Day event at the Breguet Boutique in Beverly Hills. It's unusual for an event to occur on a Friday at 5pm since people are starting to get off work or heading out of town for the weekend, but this past Friday was an exception because on June 26, 1801, Abraham Louis Breguet patented the tourbillon. And so, we have #TourbillonDay at the Breguet Boutique! I was the first guest to arrive and enjoyed a glass of champagne while I rested myself after a 2 hour drive in rush hour traffic. Tasty hors devours such as crab cakes and duck made their way throughout the event by the diligent wait staff...Story

Introducing the Breguet Baselworld 2015 collection

Avatar
AnthonyTsai
Since its beginnings in 1775, the Manufacture Breguet has earned the distinction of applying flawless style and technique to the creation of exceptional timepieces. Not content with reproducing the achievements of his predecessors, Abraham-Louis Breguet constantly sought to extend the limits of watchmaking, making an indelible imprint on history with such inventions as the pare-chute shock protection, the raised terminal curve (overcoil) of the balance-spring that takes his name, and of course the tourbillon. ... ...Story
