A short history of Breguet

In 1775 Abraham-Louis Breguet founded Breguet in Paris. It’s one of the oldest luxury watch manufacturers in the world. Breguet himsef was born in Neuchâtel Switzerland but he spent most of his productive life in Paris. The origins of the Breguet brand should therefore be considered to be Swiss and French.

The Swiss watchmaker is nowadays a subsidiary of the Swiss Swatch Group, and the timepieces are entirely produced in Vallée de Joux, in Switzerland.

The watch manufacturer became a popular and coveted luxury watch brand among the diplomatic, military, scientific and financial elites of the 19th and 20th century.

Famous wearers and patrons of the Breguet brand are Queen of France Marie Antoinette, Napoléon Bonaparte, Prince of Benevento Talleyrand, Empress Josephine, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire – Selim III, Queen of Naples Caroline Murat, Tsar Alexander I of Russia, Michel Ney – Marshal of France, Count Axel von Fersen, Sir Winston Churchill – Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and Arthur Rubinstein.
