History couldn’t have been more engaging. On May 27, Breguet Australia in conjunction with Monards hosted an exclusive dinner in Melbourne at the Crown Entertainment Complex for special guests and the local media. The night for us started off with an exclusive interview with Emmanuel Breguet, the Seventh-Generation Direct Descendant of Abraham-Louis Breguet (the founder) and Vice President of the Manufacture responsible for its patrimony and strategic development, which we will share with you very soon.
Breguet delved into the rich history of its fabulous patrimony, the inspiration of its iconic watch collections and its celebrated patrons, that took their Australian fans back into a glorious era of watch inventions. The venue and theme could not have been more apt. A section of the basement level of Monards’ Crown boutique was transformed into an exclusive luxurious Breguet-themed dining room.
At the dinner, Breguet shed some light on the history of the brand and its evolution over the years. A historian by training, specialized in the life and work of A.-L. Breguet, he is the author of the book “Breguet, Watchmaker Since 1775” . To add a little bit of fun, the speech was followed by a quiz (around the history of Breguet), with the winner being awarded a little something from the team at Monards. (In case you’re wondering, No it wasn’t a BREGUET)
Towards the end of the night, guests had the opportunity to view some outstanding fine watchmaking pieces including Breguet’s iconic tourbillons.
Whoever said history was not fun?
