Founded in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, Breguet is a highly regarded watch manufacturer who is responsible for many great inventions such as the perpetual calendar, chronograph, tourbillon and many more. The present watch made in the year 2000 to commemorate the 225th anniversary of Breguet and embodies the historical and cultural heritage of the brand.


Encased in a classic 36 mm platinum case, beneath the crystal lies a beautifully appealing Grand Fleu enamel dial which features a hidden invisible “Breguet” signature at 12 o’clock. In very good condition and complete with all original accessories, the present watch is a great timepiece of high quality.
