ABRAHAM-LOUIS BREGUET, HOROLOGER TO THE FRENCH ROYAL NAVY, COMES ASHORE IN GENEVA

09/07/2012

From July 9th to August 18th, Breguet is opening the doors of its Geneva boutique to host a tribute exhibition to the French Royal Navy.

In 1815, King Louis XVIII of France awarded Abraham-Louis Breguet the prestigious title of Horologer to the French Royal Navy. Honoured by this distinction, A.-L. fulfilled his role with pride and supplied the Navy with high-precision chronometers.

In tribute to these historical ties, the Marine line created in 1990 is firmly based on the traditional Breguet values of history, technology and avant-garde, expressed through a contemporary interpretation. Heirs to the models developed in his era by A.-L. Breguet, and yet resolutely modern, these Marine watches are designed to meet today’s demands by combining elegance, sportiness and sturdiness.

Exceptional historical models from the Breguet Museum collections, along with contemporary timepieces and the new releases introduced at Baselworld 2012, are all on show in Breguet’s Geneva boutique on the Rue du Rhône, from July 9th to August 18th 2012.
