Second edition of the book “Breguet, Watchmakers since 1775. The life and legacy of Abraham-Louis Breguet”
---
A one-of-a-kind publication, author Emmanuel Breguet describes the life and work of his ancestor, the brilliant watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), with narrative connecting to today’s company, Montres Breguet, helmed by President & CEO Marc A. Hayek. A dedicated chapter pays homage to the actions undertaken by Swatch Group founder, Nicolas G. Hayek, as the head of the brand from 1999 to 2010.
Originally published in 1997, this book became a classic among horology enthusiasts and quickly went out of print. This updated edition is complete with new images, illustrations, and additional pages on the historic pieces acquired by the Breguet Museum since 2000. 
This unparalleled literary work brings the reader to discover the life of A.-L. Breguet, his humble beginnings in France, his rise to become the watchmaker of kings, followed by the French Revolution and the firm’s aftermath under the Empire through the restoration of the Bourbons. The stories simultaneously provide a portrait of the great inventor, of the artist who creates and imposes a revolutionary style but also of the entrepreneur who distributes his work all throughout Europe, and beyond.

The second edition of the book “Breguet, Watchmakers since 1775. The life and legacy of Abraham-Louis Breguet” will be available in all Breguet boutiques worldwide: https://store.breguet.com/en/point-of-sale

26.5 x 27.5 cm (hardcover 27 x 29 cm), 452 pages, 512 illustrations, 2.6 kg, public recommended price (taxes included): 130 CHF or 120 EUR.

Until November 13, 2016, visitors of the @buchererjewelry boutique in Frankfurt are invited to discover an outstanding collection of Breguet pieces. Gathered as an exhibition, simple timepieces and Grandes Complications or jewellery watches adorn the salon’s main showcases. Greater emphasis is put on the Reine de Naples line, which has inspired the decoration of the boutique. The exhibition is completed by a reprint of A.-L. Breguet’s sales registry where he archived the history of the first wristwatch, created by the master in 1810 for Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples.
