Breguet Upholds Tradition
From January 20 to February 23 2014, Breguet took up residence at the CitÃ© du Temps in Geneva to showcase a selection of eight significant inventions. Entitled â€˜Breguet, innovations that changed Historyâ€¦ More than 200 patents since 1775â€™, the exhibition was attended by Marc A. Hayek, President and CEO of Breguet. Of the many that it has produced over the years, Breguet presented the eight horological inventions that paved the path to watchmaking. A notable invention is the tourbillon, an ingenious creation that not only compensated for the effects of gravity on the working of a timepiece, but also placed the watchmaker among an elite group of inventors. Some of the other remaining inventionsâ€”instant dual time-zone, magnetic regulator, and magnetic pivotâ€”reinstated Breguetâ€™s ingenuity and influence in the field of timekeeping.
