by 14 December 2010

Among the top ten watches in the world, Breguet's Traditional Tourbillon Fusée in platinum with Breguet balance-spring in silicon has held a lofty place in the world of fine watchmaking since its launch last year. At the first edition of The Watches Days exhibition in Geneva, where around 50 watch brands were showcased in November, Breguet watches had great success. Chosen by around 4000 voters, the new Tradition won the first prize in the Men's Watch category. And the Reine de naples Sonnerie au Passage (pictured) won the third prize in the Ladies' Watch category.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon Fusée with silicon balance-spring
This Grande Complication model in the Tradition line features the first ever Breguet overcoil balance-spring in silicon, with tourbillon and fusee-and-chain transmission. This exceptional watch reflects the architecture of the first tourbillon pocket-watches invented by Breguet, and several patents have been filed for its innovations..

Breguet Reine de Naples Sonnerie au Passage
The Reine de Naples is one of Breguet's most recognizable timepieces. Two hundred years ago, Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples, ordered this watch from Breguet. Since then, the Reine de Naples collection has become a true classic. The sonnerie au passage or automatic striking “in passing” is a sophisticated Grande Complication that serves to chime each full hour by two strokes repeated three times. A musical reminder of the bejewelled watch on your wrist.
