Patronage of the French National Navy Museum in Paris
The French Fleet Air Arm, generally referred to as the Aéronavale, celebrated its centennial anniversary in 2010. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, it sought to include one of its prestigious partners and historical suppliers Breguet. Ever since its founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet, was appointed Horologer to the French Royal Navy in 1815, Breguet has cultivated close ties with the Navy, supplying it with high-precision timekeepers for nearly two centuries. Through its patronage of the French National Navy Museum, Breguet provided an enduring form of support by enabling it to create a 90 square-meter space dedicated exclusively to naval aviation. Visitors can discover the importance of the Navy’s airborne wing through scale models of aircraft carriers, planes, precision instruments and other artifacts from its history, from its beginnings to today’s ultra-modern aircraft carriers.
