Breguet Fifth Avenue Flagship NYC Boutique
Breguet’s traveling exhibition “Breguet the Innovator. Inventor of the Tourbillon,” made the final stop of its worldwide tour in NYC last Thursday at the brand’s flagship boutique on Fifth Avenue. To celebrate, Breguet held a private cocktail reception, allowing guests to view one of largest selections of tourbillons ever assembled in one place, including the star of the show — the No. 2567 tourbillon chronometer pocket watch made by Abraham-Louis Breguet himself in 1812 (pictured in the 3 images just under this paragraph). It is one of only 35 tourbillons that Breguet — the inventor of the tourbillon — ever made in his lifetime, and one of only 7 still known to be in existence.
