  • Breguet Le Petit Trianon Collection

    May 29, 2009 | Posted by

    Breguet, the famous Swiss watchmaking house synonymous with one of the greatest horologists of all time, has announced a splendid new family of watches and jewelry inspired by the Petit Trianon–the picturesque estate integral to the Palace of Versailles where Queen Marie Antoinette withdrew to find solace from the intrigues and pressures of court life.


    The centerpiece of the collection is an oval ladies watch which uses the Breguet caliber 586 automatic movement and features a silk strap complemented by a diamond encrusted loop link at the bottom and an emerald cut diamond at the top both of which are the signature of the collection. This artful mechanism is refined by hand according to the haute de gamme tradition, and features a central winding rotor in 22-karat gold.
    The collection also includes a bracelet, a ring, a necklace and a pair of earrings all of which feature the loop link and emerald cut diamond. The Breguet Petit Trianon collection is a bewitching mixture of jeweled extravagance and graceful beauty reflect the atmosphere and loveliness of the historic grounds which are its namesake.
