The present piece has never before appeared on the public market and is offered by its original owner.
Abraham Louis Breguet is considered the forefather of modern watchmaking. Most of the complications still in use today were pioneered or perfected starting from crude previous effort by this genius watchmaker. One of his crowning achievements is without a doubt the tourbillon, a regulating organ which counteracts gravitational disturbances, a true groundbreaking invention at the time.
The spirit of Breguet lives on in the modern creations of the company that bears his name, which after two and a half centuries is still regarded as one of the most distinguished watchmaking brands. The present chronograph wristwatch incorporates indeed a tourbillon regulator, and enthralls the beholder with the warm tones of its chocolate dial, perfectly paired with the warm glow of the pink gold case.
