Since 2003, Breguet has instituted four major expansions of its Vallée de Joux workshops. In its newest wing, Breguet has organized its watchmakers into specialty groups, including one dedicated specially to tourbillons.
Tourbillon watches are a key pillar of Breguet’s patrimony as it was the brand’s founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet, who invented the tourbillon in the late 18th century and who gave it its name. In the following video, we observe one of the manufacture’s talented watchmakers as he assembling some of the key components of Breguet’s La Tradition Tourbillon.

I believe Breguet invented the Tourbillon in 1801, making it early 18th century
