What does the Brand stand for?

No other watchmaker has more contributed to the watch industry than Abraham-Louis Breguet. He was a watchmaking genius and turned Breguet into a house of inventions such as the chronograph, the tourbillon, the first perpetual calendar, the wristwatch, and the self-winding movement. The brand kept its identity and never lost its timeless style over the years. Today, while preserving the spirit of its founder, the brand tries to discover the unknown.

If you feel like there is still more to invent and to discover, join Breguet on their journey and conquer the world of watchmaking.

 

About the Models

Classique

The Classique shows that even a complicated watch does not have to trade its simplicity, clarity, and flawlessness. This collection represents the marriage between a simple design and fine watchmaking. Sometimes, a tiny detail is more important than the rest.

 

Tradition

As its name suggests, Breguet has done a phenomenal work in preserving its origins. The Tradition collection is inspired by the brand’s legendary souscriptions watches and represents the visionary mind of Abraham Louis Breguet.

 

Marine

For a brand focused on classic watches, it is a real challenge to create a modern timepiece without losing its DNA. Breguet mastered this exercise by creating the Marine collection. These watches have a sporty design but they still have not lost Breguet`s philosophy.

 

Héritage

The Héritage collection is characterized by non-round timepieces which still do not lose their recognition factor at all. Designed originally in the ‘50s for the French army, Breguet brought the model back in a civilian version, combining classic and modern watchmaking in a same timepiece.

 

Reine de Naples

During his time, Abraham-Louis Breguet created watches for Napoleon Bonaparte. He took this opportunity to design a timepiece for his sister Caroline, Queen of Naples. The Reine de Naples collection is directly inspired by this very specific watch and represents the feminine elegance, classic with a touch of modernity.
