Breguet presents a unique creation specially made for Only Watch 2011. A patented music box-type mechanism enables this one-of-a-kind white gold Réveil Musical watch to play a unique tune, Castle in the sky, either on demand or at a pre-set time. An original dial bearing a child’s hand completes a full rotation to touch the adult hand appearing on the flange, symbolizing inter-generational solidarity and support for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
