08/11/2013

Recently, Breguet Japan offered to some privileged guests a unique experience in Kyoto. Welcomed into the Taizo-in temple - an architectural masterpiece built some 600 years ago - guests embarked on a journey at the heart of Japanese culture. On the evening program : visit of the site, discovery of different paintings designated as "national treasure of Japan" and exclusive meeting with the temple priest. A traditional dance performance marked the end of the festivities and charmed the participants already conquered.

Respect, sharing and preservation of cultural heritage are central values to Breguet. The Manufacture embodies art and European culture and possesses some of the finest horological creations in history, which attracted the world’s most famous personalities, from General Napoleon Bonaparte to Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France.

Always seeking for renewal, Breguet draws its inspiration from this fabulous legacy and creates exceptional contemporary pieces, such as the Classique Twin Rotating Tourbillon and the Hora Mundi watches, both exhibited in Japan during this event. Remarkable results of many years of development, these timepieces were presented in their high jewellery version. A combination of elegance and innovation, symbol of the Breguet secular savoir-faire.
