Abraham-Louis Breguet, an outstanding scientist and technician, founded Breguet in 1775 in Paris, France, to bring precision and reliability to timepieces. Some of the greatest horological developments in history are attributed to Breguet, including the tourbillon, the first wristwatch, the pare-chute, and Breguet's apple hands. Today, Breguet is putting a lot of effort into expanding its research and development department located in the heart of the Vallée de Joux. The most recent developments include the use of silicon for critical parts of the movement, making them highly resistant to corrosion, and providing greater geometric freedom to create new and complex shapes.
Watch enthusiasts agree that each Breguet timepiece signifies an extraordinary standard of horological art. These are carefully crafted objets d'art, after all. As you look deeper, the intricacies of these pieces begin to reveal themselves. Each timepiece bears the signature of the founder, which is only visible when it catches the light.
