Breguet Winston Churchill and the watch brand

A preview of the movie “Darkest Hour” was presented in London and a soiree dedicated to the former prime minister and his relationship with Breguet was held in New York.

The House of Breguet recently hosted an exclusive private screening of the movie “Darkest Hour” one month ahead of its official release on January 12th 2018. For the purposes of this film with Gary Oldman as Churchill, a replica of the N°765 pocket watch bequeathed to Sir Winston Churchill was created.

The key media in the UK which were present at the event in London had the opportunity to see the replica of the watch worn by the former prime minister, a passionate devotee of Breguet timepieces, who was never apart from his N°765, known as the “Turnip”. Alongside the replica, the Classique collection has been put in the spotlight through the presentation of several emblematic creations. Hosts of the evening also learned of the strong relationship between Churchill and Breguet.
