WATCHMAKER TO FRENCH ROYALTY DISPLAYS ITS INNOVATIVE ACUMEN
Breguet’s collection at Baselworld 2017 was, as always, distinguished by creativity and innovation, underscored by a nod to its history and illustrious founder, AL Breguet. A member of the Bureau des longitudes in Paris, he was appointed chronometer maker to the French Royal Navy by Louis XVIII and was a member of the French Academy of Science. AL Breguet conceptualised and developed a wealth of spectacular timepieces including astronomical clocks and marine chronometers.
The brand now reinterprets this rich heritage by launching a worldwide exclusive model - the Marine Équation Marchante 5887. This “Grande Complication” marks the start of a new era for the contemporary Marine collection and takes the helm of the line it is joining. At Baselworld, Breguet offered devotees of Haute Horologerie an opportunity to discover the fundamentals of this line through an exhibit combining visual panels and explanations, scale models and interactive modules. This travelling exhibition will now make stopovers in major cities across Europe, Asia and the United States.
In parallel with this exclusive launch, Breguet continues to encourage women’s interest in mechanical watchmaking by enriching its ladies’ collection with exquisite variations featuring a stunning array of gems, mother-of-pearl and other precious materials, crafted in the purest artisan-style tradition.
