Abraham Louis Breguet was born in 1747 from a French family in Neuchatel, the genius of all master watchmakers. He started his shop in Paris in 1775 and was forced to leave during the revolution. He came back to Paris in1795. Breguet watches were for the prince, tsars, emperors or kings. You even find the Breguet name in the French literature. Inventions are enormous, like the ultimate pocket-watches, the selfwinding “Montres Perpetuelles”, the tact watches, the tourbillon, the Breguet balance spring to name a few. The height of his achievement was the Marie-Antoinette watch in which he combined all the complications. He died in 1823 and then Antoine Louis and Louis Breguet ran the company. In 1870, the works foreman Edward Brown took over the company and 100 years later, it was acquired by the Chaumet’s brothers. Since 1999 the company is owned by the Swatch group. Under their aegis, in 2006, Breguet produced a brilliant double tourbillon.
