Breguet A grand patron of the Louvre
Breguet celebrated the reopening of the Louis XIV to Louis XVI rooms at the Louvre, whose restoration the watchmaker sponsored.
This event brought to an end the exception patronage, valued at several million euros, announced in 2009 by Nicolas G. Hayek. The restored rooms, which had been closed for nearly 10 years, house the art collections from the 18th century, which include a vast watch collection including creations by Breguet.
From 1802, Abraham-Louis Breguet had the honour of presenting his masterpieces at the Louvre as part of its second exhibition of industrial products. Over two centuries later, Breguet is once again found together with the Louvre in order to help showcase its collections.
Breguet celebrated the reopening of the rooms witha private event. The programme included guided tours of the new rooms, a cocktail in the Napoleon Hall, an exclusive gala dinner under the glass pyramid and, to close, a unique concert by the young soprano Polina Pasztircsak, the winner of the 65th edition of the Concours de Genève, which the company has sponsored since 2002.
Breguet’s archives, kept in Switzerland and in Paris, record the developments that have sustained Breguet watchmaking for more than two centuries. The firm is committed to remaining ahead of its time with a flow of inventions and improvements.Find out more
