History of Breguet Watches

Explore the world of Breguet luxury watches for men and women. The Breguet brand is renown for its premium Swiss timepieces and unparalleled commitment to tradition and heritage. Breguet watches have earned a well-respected reputation for their exceptional timepieces that truly withstand the test of time.

Breguet is one of the oldest and most iconic luxury timepiece manufacturers that still operates today. Over 240 years ago, the brand was first established by watchmaker, Abraham-Louis Breguet, who skyrocketed to the forefront of European watchmaking nobility. Some of his revolutionary inventions include the tourbillon, the Breguet overcoil, and the first ever shock-resistant system, the pare-chute. Breguet also quickly became recognized for its unique watch designs, known today as Breguet hands and numerals. 

Today, Breguet encompasses an impressive catalog with a wide array of luxury timepieces for women and men. The Classique and Classique Complications collections are inspired by the company’s oldest timepiece designs. Meanwhile, the Breguet Tradition Collection is made up of a like-minded aesthetic, however we admire skeletonized dials and highly decorated in-house calibers. For those watch enthusiasts who gravitate towards more uniquely-shaped luxury watches, the Reine de Naples and Heritage collections are truly the perfect fit. Breguet also has an array of more modern timepieces within the Marine and Type XXI collections. The Marine collection derives from navy watches during the early 20th century. The Type XXI collection models its looks after 1950’s pilot’s watches.  

Regardless of which Breguet timepiece is right for you, you can admire the unmatched precision  and innovative design of this remarkable Swiss watch brand. Most Breguet timepieces are crafted in rose or white gold, however specific models also utilize more modern materials, such as stainless steel and titanium.
