A pocket watch AND a wrist watch. 

A good idea, don't you think?

This set reminds me why I love Breguet so much.

This set is fit for a king

but I never really understood the logic of the pusher in the strap: this must not be very convenient to wear

A wonderful pair!

I photographed set no.1 when it reappeared at Sotheby's a few years ago. It was the penultimate lot at the 1991 Art of Breguet sale at Antiquorum. The only set made in a combination of platinum and pink gold. catalog.antiquorum.swiss can only find...  

my goodness

It reminds me that I never posted the photos of the shooting I made of this superb set. It surely deserves that I take the time to do it upon my return… thanks for reminding me with yours πŸ˜‰ very nice photo Nico πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

Mon plaisir, mon ami.

Refinement of a Breguet wrist and pocket watch at its best. Still graceful and not clumsy as today for some models.

In total agreement.

Absolutely Incredible!

Wonderful photo, and i remember seeing them when new at dealers. Very lovely indeed, thanks for posting.

Breguet really does a magnificent job.


 By: amanico : August 2nd, 2023-21:28

So good. Breguet has the strongest design ethos out of all the big brands.

So consistent decade-to-decade. And not just consistency, but excellence as well. John

Very well said, mon ami.

perpetually interesting/beautiful. Lovely shot.

Thanks, Bruckner.

Bravo! Pure class!

Incredible set!

Many thanks for highlighting them here! What an amazing pair, from a bygone era. I remember these perpetuals which had the corrector on a chain like this and, like VinnyD, I also wonder how practical they were, not to mention you would have to accept you ... 

Hell yes! ;)

...but where to put the pocket watch

 By: xto : September 2nd, 2023-21:32
A wonderful pairing, and a nice reminder of the source of Breguet genius but where does one carry a pocket watch these days? When I was younger, I imagined that some day I would have the girth to make a vest work and a situation that called for it. But wh... 

.... in a pocket. :)))

I wanted to post that.

You must be a lawyer.


 By: amanico : September 5th, 2023-16:24

ah, yes, but wouldn't Geo. Daniels say it should be a vest pocket?

 By: xto : September 5th, 2023-18:28
Can't imagine him throwing one in trouser pockets!

In a vest, that's good!
