'Founded in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, the firm of Breguet has occupied a unique position in the field of prestige watchmaking. Considered the greatest watchmaker of all time, Abraham-Louis Breguet was the father of modern watchmaking, an innovator in both the technical and aesthetic fields. A work of reference containing a wealth of previously unpublished information, this is also a sumptuous art book, distinguished by the elegance of its design and the excellence of its illustrations. In addition, the author skillfully combines the histories of art, technical developments, politics and economics to create an appealing and accessible narrative.'
