Breguet was founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet in Paris in 1775. In 1780 Breguet introduced the first automatic watches which were called “perpetual watches”. A few years later, in 1795, Breguet launched the first perpetual calendar. This complication indicates the day of the week of any year contrary to the traditional calendar. Abraham-Louis Breguet also invented the Tourbillon complication in 1801. This complication is probably the most famous one today since it’s very difficult to make. The Tourbillon system was created to compensate the Earth’s gravitational force by mounting the escapement in a revolving cage which gives the watch a better accuracy. In 1824 Abraham-Louis Breguet died. Since 1976 Breguet watches have been manufactured in la Vallée de Joux in Switzerland. Breguet watches often share the main characteristics like guilloché dials and blue Breguet hands. The most famous watches are classic complicated watches, the Marine collection (sporty and water-resistant) and the type XX which are flyback chronographs designed for aeronautical pilots. Today Breguet is one of the most ancient and most respected manufacture thanks to its amazing legacy and great inventions towards watchmaking.
