A simply fantastic early Breguet wristwatch manufactured in 1934 and sold in May of the same year. This unique piece features a tank shaped rectangular case of beautiful proportions, with a lovely brushed top surface and back framed by sculpturally formed sides in a contrasting polished finish. Early Breguet wristwatches are extremely rare and seldom seen. Those that do appear are highly sought after by collectors, each has certain sophistication and allure about them.
Originally purchased by a Parisian gentleman of exceptional taste in 1934, for the sum of 800 Francs, this great piece features a fantastic 9 3/4 lignes movement, square steel with horn lugs in steel, silver dial with embossed black Arabic numerals, superb black hands and of course that lovely monogram engraving to the brushed caseback, all confirmed in the Breguet archive. To find such a refined and elegant dress watch of this era in steel, especially from the likes of Breguet who made such spectacular gold pieces, is most rare and unusual, in the best of ways, of course!
