(Breguet La Tradition, Model # 7067BR/G1/9W6)

 

                     Some things you might have not know about the wonderful brand Breguet.

 

Breguet was founded in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet. Thanks to his marriage to the daughter of a prosperous French bourgeois, her dowry provided the backing which allowed him to open his own workshop. The connections Breguet had made with scholarly people during his apprenticeship as a watchmaker and as a student of mathematics soon paid off. Following his introduction to the court, Queen Marie Antoinette grew fascinated by Breguet's unique self-winding watch. Louis XVI bought several of his watches and legend has it that Marie Antoinette commissioned the watch that was to contain every watch function known at that time, Breguet's masterpiece, the Marie Antoinette (No. 160).
