Breguet Birthday Bash: Exhibit Celebrates Bicentennial with the WristwatchsharetweetshareThe discussion with what was the initial timepiece for that wrist, precisely what watchmaker produced it, has typically involved a number of well-known contenders, chiefly Cartier, using its Santos-Dumont from 1904, and Patek Philippe, with its Countess Koscowicz watch from 1868. Breguet benrus watches , however, provides the historical documents to generate a compelling case for that honor. The brand's namesake, legendary watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet, delivered a wrist-worn timepiece, commissioned by Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples and sister of Napoleon Bonaparte, as early as 1812.This season, certainly, marks the 200th anniversary of the milestone, and Montres Breguet, the company that today goes on Breguet's name, is commemorating it with an exhibit of historical interest and import to watch aficionados, called "1810-1812: Breguet Helps make the First Wristwatch, Fit For any Queen." First launched in Geneva antique pocket watches , the exhibit begins a global tour starting this week at Breguet's Fifth Avenue boutique in New york. One of many attendees in the opening night gala to the exhibit were Breguet U.S watches . president Michael Nelson; Alan Gilbert, music director from the Ny Philharmonic, that Breguet is usually a sponsor; and also the Young New Yorkers in the Ny Philharmonic.The main Reine de Naples watch, that has been lost to history since 1849, was commissioned because of the queen, a noted collector of timepieces, in 1810 and delivered on December 21, 1812. An unprecedented product at a time when most timekeepers were pocketreplica watches or clocks, the watch, known in records as No. 2639, became a thin, oblong repeater watch with a silver dial and Arabic numerals, and it was attached with a wristlet of hair woven with golden threads.As part of his welcome speech, Nelson observed that Breguet is definitely celebrating two anniversaries next year: the bicentennial in the original Queen of Naples watch, as well as the 10th anniversary of the brand's own Reine de Naples, its flagship ladies' model, which has been inspired because of the historical piece. The exhibit includes, among other items, a portion of the Reine de Naples models introduced over the past decade.The exhibit will likely be hosted at Breguet's Fifth Avenue boutique until May 13, after which it will go on to the Breguet boutique in Vegas from May 17 through June 3.
