Breguet continues to highlight the legacy of its founder Abraham-Louis Breguet with an exhibit entitled: “Breguet: Watchmaker, Aviator, Innovator” celebrating a century in aviation inspired timepieces.

The exhibition launched on Flag Day, June 14th, under the New York City skyline against the backdrop of a fleet of fighter planes on board the deck of The Intrepid. A cocktail reception unveiling the exhibit was hosted by the Board of Montres Breguet represented by Mr. Rodolphe Schulthess, VP of Global Sales, Mr. Jean-Charles Zufferey, Head of Marketing and Mr. Michael Nelson, Breguet USA Brand President. Over 300 guests were treated to a private viewing of the exhibit and a sneak peak of the Space Shuttle Enterprise. VIP guests included Mr. Floyd Cardoz, winner, Top Chef Masters and preferred clients.

The evening was amplified by an expansive display of 26 Breguet watches, including 10 vintage timepieces on display for the first time in the U.S.

Starting in New York City, Breguet embarks on a two-month tour that traces the history of Breguet in aviation and showcases the brand’s legacy of innovation with a variety of historical timepieces including the original Breguet Type XX, and Breguet’s 10Hz technology which is integrated into the Type XXII.
