Breguet luxury watches stand for both pioneering technology and traditional watchmaking, which has existed for over two hundred years. Among Breguet's revolutionary inventions are the'Pare-chute' shock protection system and the Tourbillion. Breguet watch models were and are worn by exclusive customers, including Napoleon at the time. Abraham-Louis Breguet was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland in 1747 and founded his first studio as a watchmaker in Paris in 1775. Here Breguet invented a pocket watch, the first to have an automatic winding mechanism, and No 160 (Marie-Antoinette). The latter model is still one of the most complicated luxury watches in the world today.
