BREGUET AND THE ADVENT OF SILICON AND 10HZ TECHNOLOGY IN SINGAPORE22/06/2012
Breguet, who revolutionized the use of silicon and its applications in luxury watchmaking undertook a 3 days event from 20th to 22nd June 2012 in Singapore. It provided exclusive media, watch connoisseurs and retailer VVIPs alike the rare opportunity to get closer acquainted with this new technological innovation.
One of the advantages of silicon is that this material does not react to magnetic fields. Moreover, its density is three times lower than that of steel or brass and facilitates the making of lighter parts with lower inertia, while the material itself remains extremely solid and highly resistant to corrosion and to wear.
Details about silicon and 10Hz technology were provided by the Head of Research and Development at Montres Breguet SA.
