About Breguet Watches

About Breguet Watches

In the hallowed halls of watchmaking history, one name stands as a beacon of innovation, elegance, and precision: Breguet. Breguet is a brand that has witnessed revolutions, celebrated milestones, and marked moments of profound significance. The Swiss Marque continues to define moments, one watch at a time.

Breguet History

The story of Breguet watches is a captivating journey through centuries, where the relentless pursuit of horological excellence has birthed masterpieces that transcend time itself.
The tale begins in 1747 with the birth of Abraham-Louis Breguet in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Little did the world know that Abraham-Louis would one day revolutionize the art of timekeeping. After studying watchmaking for ten years under Ferdinand Berthoud and Jean-Antoine Lépine, he established his own watch company in 1775 in Paris.
Abraham-Louis Breguet's genius lay in his ability to blend technical brilliance with artistic flair, and by 1783, he unveiled a masterpiece—the Marie-Antoinette pocket watch. The pocket watch was designed to feature every watch complication known at that time.
Breguet's reputation spread like wildfire, attracting royal patrons in Europe and notable historical figures like Napoleon Bonaparte.
Breguet was not just an inventor but also an artist and, in the 1780s, introduced intricate guilloché patterns on watch dials and developed distinctive watch hands known as "Breguet hands". In 1801, Abraham-Louis Breguet patented the tourbillon, a device that counters the effects of gravity on a watch's accuracy.
Breguet continued to pioneer horological advancements, introducing the gong spring for repeater watches, the pare-chute shock protection system, and the Breguet balance spring, among others. He also produced high-precision marine chronometers used for navigation at sea.
The Swatch Group acquired Breguet in 1999, and since then, Breguet has operated as part of the Swatch Group's portfolio of luxury watch brands, ensuring its continued presence in the high-end watch market.
Headquartered in L'Abbaye, Switzerland, the brand produces its watches in various manufacturing facilities, where skilled artisans and watchmakers create their timepieces.
In the 21st century, Breguet keeps on innovating by incorporating silicon components into their movements, producing intricate and visually stunning tourbillon movements, and using cutting-edge materials.
Breguet watches continue to occupy the upper echelons of the luxury watch market and remain one of the oldest and most respected watchmakers in the world. Each Breguet watch tells a story, a story of excellence, passion, and the enduring pursuit of the extraordinary.

Breguet Collections

Whether you appreciate classic elegance, nautical flair, or avant-garde designs, Breguet offers a diverse range of watches in several distinctive watch collections to suit a variety of tastes and preferences. Here are the brand's primary watch collections;

Breguet Classique Collection

This Collection pays homage to Breguet's historical designs and is a tribute to the brand's enduring elegance that transcends eras. At the heart of the Classique Collection lies a deep reverence for tradition, with design elements that pay homage to the very first timepieces crafted by Breguet himself.
General features include the iconic Breguet hands (characterized by their eccentric moon tip or 'pomme hands'), delicate guilloché and enamel dials, round coin-edge cases, narrow soldered lugs, and fluted case bands.
From perpetual calendars that account for leap years to exquisite tourbillons that defy the effects of gravity, this Collection boasts an array of complications that elevate the timepieces in its catalog to the highest echelons of watchmaking.
You'll find timepieces here with the second hand either centrally located or placed elegantly in a subdial for small seconds.

Breguet Marine Collection

The Breguet Marine Collection has a long and storied history, dating back to the early 19th century when Abraham-Louis Breguet was appointed as a horologist to the French Royal Navy in 1815. This historical connection to the seas infuses each timepiece with a maritime spirit that transcends the confines of the wrist.
Each watch exudes a sense of adventure, with elements like wave-pattern guilloché dials, blue hues reminiscent of the ocean, and iconic fluted cases mirroring the detailing of a ship's hull. It marries the classic aesthetics of Breguet, such as the iconic moon-tipped hands and Roman numerals, with modern design elements that will make the timepieces captivating to a new generation of watch enthusiasts.
Beneath the captivating exterior, the Marine Collection houses some of the brand's most advanced movements, featuring innovative materials like silicon to enhance accuracy and reliability. Marine Chronometers, essential for navigating the high seas, have been reimagined as wristwatches with uncompromising precision.

Breguet Type XX, XXI, & XXII Collections

The Breguet Type XX, XXI, and XXII Collections draw their inspiration from aviation and military history, specifically from the mid-20th century. The Type XX was launched as a modern interpretation of the Type 20, a robust and precise aviation chronograph produced by Breguet for pilots and naval aviators of the French Ministry of Defense.
Building on the success of the Type XX, the Type XXI and XXII collections retain the aviation chronograph heritage but incorporate additional complications. The watches in these collections have a sporty and robust design, with features like rotating bezels and luminous markers for enhanced readability in various lighting conditions.
All three collections are equipped with chronograph complications, but the XXII takes a bold leap into the future by introducing a high-frequency chronograph movement that can measure time with astonishing precision down to fractions of a second (1/20th of a second).

Breguet Héritage Collection

Nowhere is Breguet's legacy more beautifully exemplified than in the Héritage Collection. The Héritage Collection is a tribute to the brand's founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet, and his pioneering contributions to the world of watchmaking. With graceful, curvaceous cases and meticulously crafted dials, each watch is a harmonious symphony of form and function.
Every component, from the delicately guilloché engraved dials to the intricately decorated movements, is meticulously crafted by the skilled hands of Breguet's artisans. The hallmark feature of the Héritage Collection is its tonneau (barrel) shaped cases, clean and classic dial layout with Breguet-style hands, and high-quality mechanical movements.

Breguet Reine de Naples Collection

The Reine de Naples Collection draws its inspiration from the world's first wristwatch, created by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1810 for Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples. This historical masterpiece laid the foundation for an entire lineage of exceptional timepieces crafted to adorn the wrists of queens, empresses, and women of incomparable grace.
From Queen Caroline Murat to Empress Josephine, these watches have beautified the wrists of royalty, symbolizing grace, strength, and refinement. Features include an iconic oval case, reminiscent of a delicate egg, adorned with diamonds and other precious gemstones. You'll also find mother-of-pearl dials intricately hand-engraved and adorned with elegant numerals, enchanting the heart with their ethereal beauty.

Breguet Grand Complications Collection

The Grand Complications Collection showcases an array of complications that boggle the mind and delight the senses. These timepieces are the apex of mechanical artistry. From minute repeaters that chime the time with melodious precision to perpetual calendars that track the heavens themselves, all the watches here are mechanical marvels.
Some models incorporate split-second chronographs, while others display tourbillons and the phases of the moon as it waxes and wanes. Many watches in the collection also include a power reserve indicator, and Breguet showcases the intricate beauty of mechanical movements through skeletonized dials and/or sapphire crystal case backs.
In the Breguet Grand Complications Collection, the laws of physics bend to the will of the watchmaker.

How Much Do Breguet Watches Cost?

The price range of Breguet watches is as diverse as the intricate complications found within them. At the lower end of the spectrum, you'll find elegant yet modestly priced pieces that still carry the unmistakable Breguet DNA. These entry-level models, typically in the Classique and Reine de Naples collection, start around $16,000 to $20,000.
At the pinnacle of Breguet's artistry are their Grand Complication timepieces, like the Classique Grandes Complications or the Marine Grand Complication, and their price tags are commensurate with their complexity and range from $100,000 to a million dollars.
