Focus on Breguet and Aviation in Luxembourg
Breguet gained much momentum this year through the participation of numerous watch fairs in 2017. The Manufacture recently presented its sumptuous timepieces during the Journées de la Passion, an exhibition which took place in the city of Luxembourg. A space dedicated to the universe of aviation allowed for a retrospective to parts of its history. Breguet made a name for itself in this field thanks to Louis Breguet who developed the gyroplane, the forerunner of the helicopter. The House then developed chronograph mechanisms fitted on cockpit instrument panels, before beginning to produce watches for pilots.
