Designer Spotlight on Breguet
Introduction to Breguet
The House of Breguet has been synonymous with luxury since the world was first introduced to their artistry and innovation in 1775. The talented watchmakers behind this Maison are responsible for some of the greatest innovations in the industry, such as designing the first watch worn on a wrist. These expert horologists even invented the Tourbillon – an essential part of any modern timepiece – which celebrates its 220th anniversary in 2021. These remarkable timepieces have been worn by some of the biggest names in history, such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Tsar Alexander I, Marie Antoinette, and Winston Churchill, just to name a few.
Popular Breguet Watch Collections
Representing precision and clean lines, the Classiques collection offers timeless pieces that embody the technical expertise of Breguet master craftsmen. Some styles make use of minimalist designs that allow centuries of craftsmanship and performance to take center stage. Others feature sophisticated complications that enhance both performance and aesthetics. The Héritage collection incorporates the brand’s heritage of precision and performance into a beautiful tonneau-shaped case, breaking from the conventional round style without sacrificing excellence. Stretched Roman numerals complete the art deco aesthetic of these works of art, resulting in a vintage appearance that reflects refinement and class.
Additional Breguet Collections
The story of the Reine de Naples collection is embedded in the history of watchmaking itself. This line of women’s watches is inspired by a bracelet watch ordered in 1810 by the Queen of Naples, Napoleon Bonaparte’s sister Caroline. Handcrafted by Breguet with master artistry, this piece was delivered in 1812, starting a long history of exceptional ladies’ watches. Today these pieces maintain the unmatched beauty that makes them fit for a queen. When the King of France appointed Breguet to create pieces for the Royal Navy, a history of crafting maritime timepieces was born. The Marine collection personifies this tradition with sporty pieces that take the timeless expertise of the watchmaker and marries it with contemporary beauty.
