10th January 1747 till 10th January 2019

Two days ago it was 272 years since the birthday of one of the best if not by many the best watchmaker of all times. Yes the Abraham-Luis Breguet. Born in Neuchatel, made his fame and died in Paris. The list of his achievements is truly amazing. Yes the t

Not a watch but still Breguet

You inspired me to pull out the last of my fountain pens this morning. The Girard Perregaux Tourbillon pen happens to be my favorite one of what I have left in the collection. Tony

"Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains"

"Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains". These words are the opener to book The Social Contract, and probably the most famous words uttered by humanist philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, circa 1760. I thought it appropriate for sporting the Br

A Day in Baden Baden

The weather was overcast but a relief from the heat of recent days. While strolling through town with another couple, the husband remarked at how 90 percent of the shop offerings were targeted at women. After these shots I headed to the Tourbillon Boutiqu

Breguet 2018 Collection: Classique and Marine.

There aren't terrible and I may warm to a version over time, but right now, ugh. The back gets rid of the guilloche rotor as well. I will say, however, that the lugs, which seem to be a point of criticism online, aren't bad at all in person. I've tried on

With the Ref. 5887 , Breguet has introduced a real gem of an astronomic (or shall I better state: solar-system?) timepiece: an Équation Du Temps Marchante (or in English: a running equation-of-time complication). Such a complication is a natural complemen

Introducing the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique with a Grand Feu enamel dial

Off-center dials were odd to me as well until I started looking at early Breguet designs (by A.L.Breguet himself) and you start to see that off-center minute/hour dials are very much a part of the original Breguet aesthetic. The intersecting circle of the
