I’m not a huge fan of gold watches, but in my opinion, the Breguet Transatlantique Type XXI Flyback in gold looks amazing. It’s a classic timepiece that you can keep to hand over to the next generation.
Here’s a little information about Breguet from Wikipedia:
Breguet is a manufacturer of luxury watches, founded by Abraham Louis Breguet in Paris in 1775. Currently part of The Swatch Group, its timepieces are now (since 1976) produced in the Vallée de Joux in Switzerland. Breguet is one of the oldest surviving watch-making establishments and is the pioneer of numerous watch-making technologies, the most notable being the tourbillon, invented by Abraham Louis Breguet. Breguet has recently introduced a line of writing instruments as a tribute to writers who mention or feature Breguet watches in their works. Breguet watches are often easily recognized for their coin-edge cases, guilloché dials and blue pomme hands (often now referred to as ‘Breguet hands’).
Yep, they’ve been around for that long. If you haven’t seen their ads, they were around about the same time as Napoleon Bonaparte.
As for price, well, consider this timepiece a “steal” compared to this watch. It’s about 99% cheaper.
