Breguet Timepieces owned by Russian Nobility in the 1800s

We recently visited Breguet’s flagship boutique in New York City at 711 Fifth Avenue to check out three important pieces that were on loan from the Collection Montres Breguet S.A.

First, is the Breguet #4821 owned by Prince A. Demidov in 1842. It is referred to as a “small simple medallion watch” with a case of pietre dure inlay on gold mount, dial of pietre dure inlay with off-center chapter ring, and ruby cylinder escapement. 37mm diameter.

Hands-On with the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin Automatic 5377 in Platinum

In 2013, Breguet introduced the 5377 Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin, the world’s thinnest tourbillon.

And so, while this is not a new release per se — this is the first time the platinum model has been exhibited.

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.
