BREGUET #5 REPEATING WATCH
Breguet’s early #5 repeating watch from year 2 of the Republic contains a number of interesting features. An early self-winding system was driven by a pendulum weight. An à toc quarter repeater struck the
side of the case instead of gongs. Most of all, the watch is significant for its guilloche dial with well-balanced power-reserve, moon-phase, and subsidiary-seconds displays. It’s a perfect example of the Breguet stylestyle, which has served as a model for modern wristwatches as well as a series of complete
replicas built in the 21st century.
