A Pocket Watch Made by the Hands of Abraham-Louis Breguet

Post by koimaster on Wed Apr 18, 2012 12:23 pm

Rarely does such a treasure appear in the public and come up for auction. This is a watch crafted by the hands of the watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet. Yes, that guy, the one who changed the course of watchmaking. Here we have a recently discovered and previously unknown, pocket watch that has have surfaced from the private collection of a European noble family and is one the most important watches to appear in a generation.

Today, the company carries on their namesake’s legacy, pushing the boundaries of invention and discovery, seen from their use of silicon in high-frequency escapements to the Reveil Musical, a watch that plays a tune like a music box.

That's hand crafted and made. Take that Renato!!



How this was possible in an age without computers and other modern day aids to manufacturing is incomprehensible to me.

But I am simple.



Thanks for bringing this one back to life Eddie-I missed it the first go round.

Well, yeah. And at that price I'd want a meteorite dial.
