Innovative and pioneering, Breguet is one of the most prestigious watchmaking manufactures still in operation. The brand has stood the test of time, seducing connoisseurs with the exceptional quality of its timepieces.

Since its founding in 1775, the manufacture has continuously distinguished itself through the avant-garde spirit instilled by its founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet. A remarkable scientist and technician, he was always on the lookout for innovations that could bring precision and reliability to timepieces. He is also the creator of numerous horological inventions such as the tourbillon, the first wristwatch, the pare-chute, and the iconic Breguet open-tipped hands. As the initiator of neoclassical style in watchmaking, his creation of a clean and legible design has become Breguet’s hallmark, inspiring many watch brands since then. This innovative spirit has captivated numerous personalities from the political, economic, and financial elite worldwide since the brand’s inception.


Since Breguet’s acquisition by the Swatch Group in 1999, the commitment to perpetuate the rich heritage of the House, while continuing to build the watchmaking of tomorrow, is more relevant than ever. Breguet dedicates considerable energy to the development of the Research & Development (R&D) department, which has already invented the silicon balance spring and the magnetic pivot. It is in the skilled hands of its artisans, in the manufacture located in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, that each watch is created.

Excellence, craftsmanship, and passion: since 1775, the Breguet brand continues to astonish with watch collections that uphold its heritage while being oriented towards the future

Breguet became a Comité Colbert member in 1985.

Signature Breguet

Its signature

The Breguet timepieces, whether watches, chronographs or clocks, combine mechanical and aesthetic virtuosity and are recognisable by the dial which has featured fine hand engravings since 1786. Today still, Breguet craftsmen continue to use engine-turning lathes designed and built over a century ago, allowing them to engrave intricate patterns on gold with a precision of a tenth of a millimetre, in accordance with industry standards.
