Literature

The present watch is prominently illustrated and described in The Art of Breguet by George Daniels, pages 74, 270 and 287.

Catalogue Note

This fine Breguet watch, made in 1823, was intended simply to supply a demand for an economically priced precision watch. The watch is simple and very conservatively constructed, however the mechanism features a full plate English movement with fusée and Earnshaw spring detent escapement, which was usually used with a tourbillon. The watch is furthermore discussed and illustrated in The Art of Breguet by George Daniels and has been retained in extremely attractive and original condition.
