Breguet’s Classique Chronométrie will be one of the stars of the public exhibition at Baselworld at the Swatch Group Plaza on April 27 and 28, 2013.

After Basel, Breguet’s original masterpieces will go on a world tour in an exhibition titled “Breguet, the innovator. Inventor of the Tourbillon.” It will travel across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the United States.

With more than 200 years of inventions, Breguet’s status as a high-grade watchmaker can be traced back to its commitment to innovation. The manufacturer’s attention to detail has led it to develop ground-breaking inventions and improve the quality of mechanical watches.

In the late 18th century, Breguet unveiled such innovations as the self-winding perpétuelle watch and the newly patented tourbillion regulator.

Breguet continues to develop and incorporate new technologies. In 2006, after several years of research, the brand unveiled the first silicon components, which improves timepiece performance by permitting magnets in watch movements. These new magnetic components presented new opportunities down the road as well. In 2012, Breguet introduced the Classique Chronométrie, which incorporates a magnetically pivoted balance in a 10Hz frequency movement.
