Catalogue Note

Abraham Louis Breguet revolutionized the horological world when he invented the tourbillon in order to create more accurate timepieces. Conceived in 1795, and patented in 1801, the tourbillon counter acts the effects of gravity by mounting the balance wheel in a rotating cage in order to negate the effect of gravity on the escapement. Makers now include the tourbillon as a novelty and demonstration of sophisticated watchmaking skill. 

The Breguet firm continues to honor Abraham Louis Breguet's legacy today by creating exceptional high-end timepieces. The present lot combines the tourbillon with other sought after complications, such as the perpetual calendar, retrograde date, and leap year indication. The guilloché dial, which features registers finished with silver chapter rings, epitomizes Breguet's classic aesthetic. This piece perfectly encapsulates the archetypal watchmaker's refined level of craftsmanship, and would make a wonderful addition to any connoisseur's collection.
