About this title:

Synopsis: This dazzling exploration of the work of renowned horologist Breguet is also a fascinating look at what makes watches and other timepieces tick. Abraham-Louis Breguet invented many of the standard components of today’s most prestigious watches, earning the title “The Father of Modern Horology.” The self-winding watch, the gong spring, the first shock-protection device, and
the enameled dial―all were created by Breguet. In addition,
he invented the first travel clock, sold to Napoleon Bonaparte
in 1798, and the first wristwatch, delivered to Caroline Murat,
queen of Naples in 1812. Perhaps Breguet’s most famous
timepiece is the “Marie-Antoinette” pocket watch, which took
forty years to make and was the most complex watch of its
time. This fascinating, elegantly designed volume features
more than seventy watches and clocks that were constructed
by the Breguet company, and it contains many insights into
the inner workings that made these objects so innovative and
valuable. Engaging essays explore Breguet’s personal history,
the technologies he perfected, and his vast international
reputation―which survives to this day. This beautiful overview
of Breguet’s achievements will speak to anyone who treasures
their watch―whether as an indispensable daily accessory, or as
a prized piece of jewelry.

About the Author: Emmanuel Breguet is the head of archives and historical collections at Montres Breguet S.A., Paris and L'Abbaye, Switzerland.
