This grand complication wristwatch pays tribute to the fact that the brand’s founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet, was appointed the official horologer to the French Royal Navy by King Louis XVIII in 1814. Crafted in 18K white gold, the triple-complication timepiece features a tourbillon, perpetual calendar and offers a running equation of time to show the difference between average and real solar time. The running equation of time is displayed via a central hand on the main dial. That main dial is a study in elegance, with a center blue wave pattern and concentric outer rings for indication of the date and time. The bridges of the movement are engraved with a French navy vessel, and the case back allows for viewing of the movement. This high-complication watch offers 80 hours of power reserve.
