The letter dated 4 October 1949, gives details of the watch given to Eugene Jaquet by Monsieur G. Brown of Breguet in Paris. The watch, according to the letter, was sold for 3000 Francs to Baron de Victinghoff Pere on 5 February 1819.
The well preserved box has the address Quai De L'Horloge Du Palais, no. 79., Breguet's address for nearly 100 years. In 1870 the ownership of Breguet passed to the Brown family, headed originally by Edward Brown, and moved from its original famous address. The Brown family would own Breguet for the next 100 years. The 'G. Brown' referred to in the letter would be George Brown, who was the third generation of Browns to run Breguet until 1970, when the firm was sold to the Maison Chaumet.
