Exclusive: Breguet Releases Not One, Not Two, But Three New Masterpiece Watches

Breguet has a whole lot of history. It's well-known in watch circles, yes. But it should also be known by everyone else, too, for the marque's namesake – Mr Abraham-Louis Breguet – created pieces for European nobility, including the world's most expensive watch, which he built for Marie Antoinette (she of big hair and cake-eating fame). Breguet embodies the same level of fine horological craft to this day. To this actual, very day, in fact, as the Swiss watchmaker has just released several new watches.

Two models from the marquee Classique collection, the 7137 and the 7337, have undergone a makeover with a rose gold and a silvered gold dial, and in white gold with a gold dial. What's more, a hand-embossed starscape adds an elevated level of detail to the moonphase display – a signature touch from a manufacture that prides itself on its meticulousness.

What's more, the Marine line has seen the release of a brand new model: the Tourbillon Équation Marchante 5887. The much-anticipated novelty has a refreshingly sports-geared aesthetic for something that sits right on the the top shelf of haute horlogerie. A tourbillon is defined by its extreme complexity, in which a watch escapement is added to the movement in a bit to increase accuracy. It's a piece of watchmaking that was first developed in 1795, by – who else? – the good man Abraham-Louis Breguet.

Strong credentials, then. And if you fancy yourself some Swiss prestige proper on the wrist, visit breguet.com to arrange an appointment today.
