Why We Love it

If you’re looking for a striking dress watch produced in the tradition of classics hundreds of years old, then you should be looking at Breguet.

Established in 1775 by perhaps the most notable watchmaker to ever walk this earth, Abraham Louis Breguet, his eponymous brand is famed for its stunning guilloché dials. When paired with a well shaped watch case and a simple leather strap, such a timepiece transcends the era in which it was made, becoming a work of horological art.

The particular Breguet however, part of the Marine collection, straddles the line between a dress watch and a sports watch. It combines traditional Breguet watchmaking techniques with some sportier design aesthetics and functionality.

Dating to the late 2000s and housed in a 39mm stainless steel coin-edge case with ‘officer’s’ lugs, a signed, screw-down crown, and a polished bezel, it features a luminous, multi-tone silver dial with a gorgeous, spiraling guilloché pattern, applied, blued-steel ‘Roman’ indices, a matching ‘Breguet’ handset, and a ‘digital’ date display above 6 o’clock. 

This watch comes paired to a signed, textured, navy blue rubber strap with a signed, steel deployant clasp and is powered by Breguet's Calibre 517GG automatic winding movement — which is visible via a sapphire caseback.

When paired to its rubber strap, this handsome piece transforms into an excellent everyday watch. But throw it on a simple leather strap, and it instantly becomes an accessory to formalwear.

Versatile and lovely, it’s a solid candidate for a one-watch collection given its robust build quality and under-the-radar looks.

Brand Story

+
Few companies are so steeped in history that their name has become a byword for a particular type of product or style. Breguet is one such company: Their famously elegant numerical typeface and matching handset is now de rigueur amongst the most sophisticated dress watches, from Patek Philippe to Longines to, of course, Breguet itself.

However, these numerals and hands are but a single innovation in a long list of horological firsts devised by master watchmaker and inventor Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), a Neuchatel-born savant whose Parisian career saw the advent of myriad watchmaking creations that we take for granted today. Indeed, it was Breguet who devised the first self-winding watches, as well as the first gongs for repeating watches and the tourbillon. Not many inventors can claim the king and queen of France as patrons, but indeed King Louis XVI and his bride Marie Antoinette were amongst his admirers.

20th-century Breguet is no less storied: The company’s Type 20 pilot’s chronograph issued to the French Aéronautique Militaire in the 1950s provided a benchmark for military watch design. Its stark black dial and utilitarian look belied the sophisticated retour en vol (“flyback”) mechanism within the movement, which allowed a pilot to stop, reset and start the chronograph by depressing the bottom pusher just once.

More recently, under the current management of Mark A. Hayek, modern Breguet has continued to register new patents and amass a dedicated following. The brand’s “Classique” dress watches from the 1990s and 2000s, for example, feature some of the most striking dials in modern watchmaking, making use of guilloché patterns, blue steeled hands and Roman numerals. While the company’s contemporary offerings continue to increase in sophistication and the number of complications available, it’s surely these simple, gorgeous time-only models that best encapsulate the elegant timepieces of A.L. Breguet himself.
