Many watch enthusiasts will agree, that Breguet is the finest Swiss watch manufacturer in the industry. Within the first decade of establishing his own watchmaking firm, Abraham Louis Breguet was widely known as one of the finest horologists of the time, this was in the 1780s. He was receiving commissions from some of the finest members of society, one of them being the last French Queen, Marie-Antoinette, who happened to be a strong admirer of the timepieces.
Queen Marie-Antoinette had a vast collection of timepieces, many of them Breguet watches, however, she always welcomed more. Members of Marie-Antoinette’s Guard placed a commission to Breguet in 1783 for a unique timepiece that was to be gifted to Queen Marie Antoinette. This commission specified the watch was to have every complication known at the time and the parts were to be made out of gold rather than brass wherever possible. This project was handed to Breguet with no limit on price nor hours of labor.
The final product of this Breguet Marie-Antoinette watch is the grandfather of the Breguet model collection we now call the Breguet Grande Complication. The final piece never got to the hands of Abraham Louis Breguet nor Queen Marie-Antoinette. This Marie-Antoinette Pocket Watch Grande Complication No. 160 was completed by Breguet’s son, Louis-Antoine Breguet after 44 years of its initial request.
The final product of Breguet No. 160 Grande Complication consisted of a 63mm 18k pocket watch with a perpetual calendar showing the day, date, and month, along with a minute repeater, hour indicator, minute indicator, sweep seconds indicator, jump hour, and thermometer. All these complications are powered by an automatic self-winding platinum oscillating weight or what Breguet calls “perpétuelle”.
The details and complications on this timepiece inspired Breguet to continue with the line of Grande Complication pocket watches and wristwatches. Today Breguet has the Classique Grande Complication collection inspired by the Marie-Antoinette by carrying several complications on the dial.
