More than two centuries of work and many patents have gone into the development of
today’s Breguet watchmaking. One of the great improvements in watchmaking came with
the invention of the Breguet Tourbillon regulator. This new regulator (patented by Breguet
in 1801 for a 10 year period) improved the accuracy of pocket chronometers by
overcoming the effects of gravity on the sensitive parts in the watch. In the Breguet
Tourbillon regulator, all of the most sensitive parts are encased in a carriage which
performs a complete rotation during each minute of operation. This invention allowed the
watch to maintain accuracy no matter what the position of the watch is. A side benefit of
such an invention was that constant change in the point of contact enhances the lubrication
of the watch’s bearings. Even though patented in 1801, the first regulators were not
commercialized until 1805 when presented to the public at the National Exhibition of
Industrial Products in Paris. As a given with the high quality timepieces, some of the first
Today’s Breguet Tourbillon with its modern advances is protected by several patents. For
