When he set up his workshop in Paris in 1775, Abraham-Louis Breguet became the father of modern watchmaking. His countless inventions include the tourbillon and an efficient shock-protection system, as well as especially elegant hands and numerals. Breguet was soon supplying the elites of Europe with highly sophisticated watches. In the battle of Waterloo, the field commanders of all the armies wore watches from Breguet. Committed to his genius and his aesthetic maxims, Breguet’s company is still making watches that fulfill the very highest standards.
