What Abraham-Louis Breguet has brought to the industry?

Emmanuel Breguet-Lots of things! Breguet watches revolutionized not only technical, but also aesthetic. Among his most famous inventions, there are of course tourbillon regulator of the patent, filed in 1801. These vintage wristwatches for sale, designed to eliminate errors caused by walking gravity on pocket watches movements, improving their functioning . He also has worked on different ways to read the time like these watches tell tact, where the reading of the hour was to touch on beads, small diamonds. He invented the stamp spring that allowed to reduce the thickness of the minute repeater watches and get a better sound. Breguet is also considered one of the fathers of the current automatic watch. He also created the first watches back keyless chronometer with the “double seconds”, the ancestor of modern chronograph. He improved operation and reliability of movements with “pare-chute” shock first device of a watch mechanism, the constant force escapement or Spiral Breguet, not to mention his son, who in 1830 created the first watch with a winding knob replacing the key. tylistically, he cleaned the dials of watches: guilloche background, simplified needles. Baroque, the timepiece became neoclassical.

How is he different from his peers?

It is a versatile man. It is attached to handle all areas related to watchmaking, from the scientific to the more aesthetic.Among his notable inventions include the still pendulum trip he created in 1798 for Napoleon. Or say these clocks friendly, first timepieces connected in history in which a clockwork caliber operates the hands of the clock. And what about the watch of Marie Antoinette, except when Nicolas G. Hayek, founder of Swatch Group (which bought Breguet in 1999, ed), decided to redo the same, it asked two years of hard work because it was probably one of the most complicated parts in the world?

How do the brands use his legacy today?

Breguet’s lifetime, the style of his timepiece was immediately copied. On a more technical level, the first vortex other than ours were not introduced until the late nineteenth century because they were too complex to manufacture. When we launched in 1985 the first swirl on a wristwatch, it gave the start of the incredible vogue for this type of model.But I believe that the best tribute that can be made today it lies in research into oil and exhaust without protection movement against magnetic fields which are working on all watchmakers. For us, the development of the patented magnetic pivot in 2010, which reduces friction and protects the movement of the waves, is in line with the work of Abraham-Louis Breguet.
