Breguet is a manufacturer of luxury watches, founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet in Paris in 1775. Breguet is one of the oldest surviving watch-making establishments and is the pioneer of numerous watch-making technologies. Breguet watches are often easily recognized for their coin-edge cases, guilloch dials and blue pomme hands (often now referred to as ‘Breguet hands’).

Breguet is known for perfecting and inventing the tourbillon. Even with today’s advanced technology, the tourbillon can only be built by the most skilled watchmakers. Breguet began with the theory that the gravity of a pocket watch (that was almost always carried vertically) led to deviations in timekeeping. He wanted to rule out all differences of position with the tourbillon. Tourbillons counters the effects of gravity by mounting the escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage, ostensibly in order to negate the effect of gravity when the timepiece (and thus the escapement) is rotated.
