With Breguet Paris original fitted green leather presentation box with applied gilt crown of King Fouad I to the front, a small compartment to the inside containing the key.
According to the Archives of Montres Breguet, the present "borne" or "milestone-shaped" timepiece is part of a small series of only six of such silver clocks decorated with vertical black enamel lignes and a transversal ribbon in three colour enamel, ordered by His Majesty King Fouad I of Egypt in November 1925.
It is listed in Breguet's workbooks as "pendulette borne en argent, filets verticaux en email noir, ruban transversal émaillé en trois tons (bleu, corail, noir), sous le cadran la couronne et le chiffre de sa Majesté le Roi d'Egypte Fouad I. Cadran argenté, chiffres romaines en émail noir avec des aiguilles en argent émaillées bleu et corail, mouvement 8 jours".
Sold to his Majesty King Fouad I on 8 December 1925 for the amount of FF 3,688, it has never been returned to the workshops of Breguet since.
Consigned by a private collector, the present timepiece is preserved in very good, unspoilt original overall condition, showing tarnish to the silver case, a typical sign that it has not been used or polished in a long time. The rarity is furthermore enhanced by the original presentation box.
