On Thursday evening, this past November 30th, RedBar was on hand to help our friends at Breguet
celebrate the grand opening of their brand new flagship boutique, located on Manhattan's storied Fifth Avenue. This location highlights a new architectural direction for Breguet, with warm, classic design cues setting the tone throughout its 2600 sq.ft of space.
We see you, Mr. Bernardo...
Those in attendance were treated to a presentation by a watchmaker demonstrating the fine art of guilloche, with several guests helming the age-old machine themselves. Also on display was a replica of Winston Churchill’s pocket watch, which was faithfully re-created for the movie "The Darkest Hour", starring Gary Oldman. Add to this one of the original thirty-five tourbillons crafted by Abraham-Louis Breguet himself, and you've got yourself a party.
