Over two centuries after the foundation of the brand, Breguet decided to launch a special set made in a limited series of 300 pieces. It was 1991 when the Subscription Set was officially revealed to the world: composed of two watches in 18K yellow gold, a minute repeating perpetual calendar wristwatch and a beautiful large pocket watch, the epitome of Breguet style. The set here offered is number 11 of this very scarce series and probably represents one of the very few remaining still with its complete full set! The wristwatch reference 3430 is created in a very classic style with all the information of the perpetual calendar harmoniously displayed on the guilloché dial. Surely, the most attractive and precious complication of this wristwatch is the minute repeater and its magnificent sound capable of reproducing hours, quarters and minutes. Together with the wristwatch comes an extremely sophisticated and complex pocket watch reference 1890. The beautiful decoration and intricacy of the movement can easily be appreciated through the large display case back of the timepiece. Taking inspiration from some historically important Breguet perpetual pocket watches from the late 18th century, it features a hammer-winding mechanism. Offered with the 18K yellow gold magnifying glass and screwdriver, this very set is a catch that any seasoned collector will try to conquer and possibly quite a unique chance to purchase one of these sets still with all these original accessories!
