Breguet The Marie-Antoinette 1160 presented in London

Last week, the Breguet Flagship in London hosted for the first time in the UK an exclusive viewing of the famous pocket watch.

The presentation of this legendary Grande Complication timepiece was subject to a private event attended by an estimated 60 VIP guests. The evening was the occasion for Breguet to talk about the privileged relationship between Abraham-Louis Breguet and the last Queen of France, a great admirer of the watchmaker’s work and one of its most devoted clients.

To do so, Breguet invited celebrated presenter, actor and watch enthusiast, Nicholas Parsons, to co-host the event. Mr. Parsons shared with guests his experience with the Marie-Antoinette watch and referenced the highly-rated documentary “The Incredible Story of Marie Antoinette’s Watch,” which was aired on BBC4 in December 2016.
