Although the Maison was founded by a Swiss watchmaker, it was in Paris that Abraham-Louis Breguet’s workshop opened in 1775. It's important to remember that back then, the City of Light was one of the capitals of horology, just as it was the city of art and culture in general. As such, it's unsurprising that the brilliant watchmaker settled in the city where he could complete the training he had begun in Switzerland.
As a symbol of this attachment to France, Breguet has become a member of the prestigious Comité Colbert. This group is comprised of over a hundred world-renowned French luxury Maisons. Active in various areas such as jewellery, haute couture, culinary art, wine and spirits, as well as gastronomy among others, they are all committed to upholding the values of French creativity and savoir-faire.
