The sole feminine model of Breguet’s signature wristwatch is given a new look. Having unveiled the first ever Tradition for ladies not too long ago at Baselworld, Breguet has just announced another variant of the model for Baselworld 2017 that takes place in March next year.

New Breguet Type XXI 3817

Breguet Type XXI 3817

Many of us associate the name Breguet with watchmaking milestones, but fewer may be aware of its historic connection to the world of aviation. Louis Charles Breguet, great grandson of horology icon Abraham-Louis Breguet, was an aeronautical pioneer who developed the gyroplane (forerunner of today’s helicopters) as well as the storied Breguet XIV and Deux-Points airplanes in the early 20th century, the golden age of aviation innovation. The Breguet watch company, still run at the time by the founding family, worked with Louis Charles’s firm in the development of, first, chronograph mechanisms for cockpit instrument panels and then, in 1935, its first chronograph wristwatches for pilots. The most famous of these, the Breguet Type XX, made its debut two decades later. Commissioned by the French armed forces, this timepiece would be the watch of choice for the French air force and naval pilots up until the 1980s.

The modern collection that evolved from this enduring icon, the Breguet Type XXI, added a new model at Baselworld 2016: the Breguet Type XXI 3817, which not only boasts an all-new slate-gray dial but also, for the first time in this vintage aviation-inspired collection, a see-through sapphire caseback. read more

Introducing Breguet Type XX

Published by:

Breguet Type XX

Some of my favorite watches are the pieces that most people don’t necessarily associate with a particular brand. It’s the reason why I often prefer vintage (think original IWC Portugieser or ’60s Heuer Carreras), and it’s a large contributing factor in why the modern Grand Seiko line has become one of my favorite contemporary collections. These pieces are different not for difference’s sake, but because they represent either a different era, a different angle, or both, for the brand in question. Another such series, in my opinion, is the Breguet Type XX— a watch model so dissimilar from the luxuriously designed tourbillons and general high-complication identity of that brand that it would not be surprising for some to mistake these watches as part of, perhaps even the flagship of, some other manufacturer’s lineup. read more

A Rare And Superb Breguet Subscription Set Of Watches – Lot 163

Published by:

This lot 163 (listed here) is certainly our biggest crush. They are uncommon but not extremely rare (300 pieces), it is rather old but not yet vintage (manufactured in 1991) but it is simply beautiful. This Breguet Subscription set pays tribute to the early watches created by Abraham Louis Breguet. It is composed of two timepieces of an exceptional quality. The first and most noticeable one is of course this modern pocket watch made with all the respect due to the founder of the manufacture (and one of the founders of the modern horology) in an extremely faithful way. The gold, hand-guilloché dial displays the time, the power reserve, the moon-phases and the date. However, the most exciting part is beneath the dial. The movement is the replica of an antique movement with bumper mass in platinum and hand-finished, frosted, gold bridges. read more
