BREGUET PERPETUAL CALENDAR CHRONOGRAPH REF. 5617 YG FULL SET
Breguet is a high-end watch brand that was established in Paris, France in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, who was originally a watchmaker in Switzerland. Breguet was renowned for creating exceptional timepieces and innovative inventions like the tourbillon and over-coil hairspring, which are still utilized in watches today. Even after his death in 1823, the company was led by his family members for several generations until it was sold to Edward Brown, the factory manager, in 1870. Over the years, the brand changed hands several times, with Chaumet and Investcorp S.A. being among its owners. In 1999, the Swatch Group purchased which continues to respectfully carry on the century-old tradition of Breguet.
The present watch is an exceptional Breguet wristwatch manufactured in the early 2000s. It bears the reference 5617 and features an exquisite movement with a perpetual calendar and chronograph complication. The overall condition is truly exceptional, likely unpolished with factory finishes still intact. The dial has no spots or scratches, and the fine movement is in perfect working order. The case is 38 millimiters in size and it has a great presence on the wrist. This spectacular watch fully testifies to Breguet’s horological mastery.
The watch is accompanied by its original box and papers dated 2005.
