Breguet at the Louvre

A retrospective of the works of Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), the Swiss manufacturer of the watches that became status symbol of the rich and famous, is this summer’s treat at the Louvre in Paris. Running through September 7 at the Sully Wing, salle de la Chapelle, the Breguet and the Louvre: An Apogee of European Watchmaking exhibition assembles exceptional loans –watches, clocks and measuring instruments– alongside portraits, archival documents and patents that span Breguet’s entire career.
