Frederique Constant Swiss Automatic
This watch pays homage to old classic Breguet guilloche dials, which Breguet helped popularize and revolutionize the art of guilloche craftsmanship. The technique, developed in the 16th century, was being used about 300 years later to add a flourish to wooden furniture when Abraham-Louis Breguet encountered it in London. And the company’s founder liked what he saw, according to Vincent Laucella, now Breguet’s creative director. “Abraham-Louis Breguet did not invent the guillochage but was the first to apply it to watch dials and exploit its full potential,” said Emmanuel Breguet, the company’s vice president, head of patrimony and marketing, and a seventh-generation descendant. The company has been part of the Swatch Group since 1999.
