Breguet is a Swiss luxury watch. Breguet was founded in 1775. Today, Breguet is owned by the Swatch Group (Blancpain, Harry Winston, Omega, Longines, Swatch) and is one of the most historical manufacturers. Breguet has been credited with numerous inventions, such as the 1810 Breguet wrist watch as the world's first such product, and Abraham-Louis Breguet's invention of the tourbillon. The Breguet hands are the blue pomme hands only found on Breguet watches. Many celebrities, sports stars and explorers favor Breguet watches over other brands. Notably features of a Breguet watch are coin-edge case, guilloché dial and sometimes the most difficult complications of watchmaking. Notable Breguet watch lines are the Breguet Classique, Breguet Classique Simple, Breguet Classique Grandes Complications, Breguet Marine, Breguet Heritage, Breguet Type XX, XXI, XXII, Breguet La Tradition, Breguet Reine de Naples. Some of these watches include a Breguet tourbillon, most of them are available as Breguet replica watches and sadly also as fake Breguet watches. Often used Breguet watches or pre owned Breguet watches are found at watch auctions, beloved by collectors for their value and features. Younger collectors tend to look for Breguet watches for sale on e-commerce portals, most popular are Breguet watches on Amazon and Breguet watches on ebay. WatchTime has a watch database with Breguet watch price information and photos of many Breguet women's watches and men's watches. The Breguet price range is on the higher end of luxury watches which is why many collectors read Watchtime's section of Breguet watch review posts and Breguet tests to find the best watch. Our Breguet pronunciation guide helps you to spell the brand correctly. We cover Breguet watch news, Breguet watch reviews and many Breguet prices for all watches. Breguet watches are considered good investments by watch collectors. WatchTime is your trusted Breguet watches authority.
