Breguet is a luxury watch, clock and jewelry manufacturer founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet in Paris, France in 1775. Since 1999, it has been a subsidiary of the Swiss Swatch Group.
Breguet is one of the oldest surviving watchmaking brands and a pioneer of numerous watchmaking technologies such as the tourbillon, which was invented by Abraham Breguet in 1801. The most expensive Breguet timepiece ever sold at auction, fetches 6.80 million US dollars in New York on 2012
Among the many Abraham-Louis Breguet’s inventions, the so-called perpetual automatic watch, the gong spring, and the first anti-shock device, earned him the official title of master watchmaker in 1784.
Marie Antoinette was fascinated by her work and ordered him a watch with all the complications and refinements, without time or price restrictions.
