Passing through Denver with a very special timepiece in hand, Breguet recently invited me and a few special guests to come over and check out their 1907 Grand Complication pocket watch. Colloquially referred to as the “million dollar pocket watch”, the 1907 is a truly special offering out of the Breguet collection. At 56.5mm in diameter, cased in yellow gold, the watch is physically imposing. It is equally imposing from a mechanical standpoint as well: Grand Sonnerie (automatically strikes the hours and quarters at each quarter, and minute repeater (on demand, chimes the time down to the minute)). And of course the watch has the famous complication invented by A.L. Breguet himself, the tourbillon.
Full details below, along with several pictures that I managed to come away with.
