Amongst Abraham-Louis Breguet’s many game-changing creations, the tourbillon is probably his most technically erudite. Breguet originally invented the tourbillon to counter the effects of gravity on regulating mechanisms inside pocket watches. However, the complication has taken on a life of its own in modern watchmaking, its purpose and influence extending far beyond just improving timekeeping. The technical skills and experience required to construct a tourbillon, as well as the mechanical poetry it invokes, has elevated the tourbillon into something more akin to a badge of honour, one that's coveted in equal measure by watchmakers and watch collectors.

But even more signficantly, it is befitting that the brand that invented the mechanism has stayed renowned today for constantly finding new ways to express its beauty and complexity. Demonstrating this in no uncertain terms is the new Classique Double Tourbillon 5345 Quai De L’Horloge, an exquisite and ornate take on the tourbillon that demands the best from Breguet’s watchmakers and artisans.
