This timepiece is an extraordinary example of perpetual calendar Art Deco clock made by Breguet. The aesthetic codes of the period are clearly present with the stylized stepped shoulders supporting the strict squared case and resting on the precious exotic wooden base. The classic Breguet style of the dial is surprisingly well complemented by the case for a harmonious result.
Only a handful examples are known to the market and the present lot is a rare opportunity to acquire one.
The desk timepiece was produced in 1931 under No. 1878 and sold on December 31st 1932 to Mr. Lantz for 15,000 FFR
The piece was returned to Breguet, restored and re-numbered 4536 in 1942. It was then sold on January 30th 1943 to Mr. Ducos.
