With its long and illustrious history, Breguet has undoubtedly established itself as one of the finest watchmakers. With a production that ranges from minute repeaters to chronographs, from triple calendars to moon phases, among them could not be missing the alarm complication. Often undervalued, in the court of history it mainly had a true functional role, helping people wake up. In recent times, with the advent of the telephones and other technological systems it has lost a bit of this function but it still finds many applications in the day-to-day life: it is invaluable, for example, in case one has to remember to make a phone call at a specific time, or if one has to leave the premises to make it to an appointment and so on. The lot here offered is a very interesting and rare example of wristwatch with alarm made by Breguet. Accompanied by the certificate by the maison itself confirming the originality of the watch and its production in 1969, this lot is absolutely charming and gorgeous. The 33.5 mm case is in steel and preserved in very nice condition, still offering the engraving on the back. The two crown at 2 and 4 o’clock help to set the time and the alarm. The silvered dial has applied indexes with luminous material at the end, Breguet signature and light blue inner divisions in quarts.
