Now bigger and better than before, the Breguet boutique recently reopened in another location inside Marina Bay Sands, the casino and resort complex by Singapore’s financial district.
Almost 1500 square feet, the store is clad in Breguet’s redesigned interior decor, the second in Asia to sport the new look. But not everything inside is new: taking pride of place in the front corner is a rose engine from 1905, the type of machine used to create traditional guilloche on watch dials.
Similarly, while the store carries the full range of contemporary Breguet timepieces, including prototypes of new launches from Baselworld 2017 like the Tradition Dame 7038, a half dozen strong historical collection is also on hand for the opening.
On display till the middle of June, the historical collection includes pocket watch no. 2592, a quarter repeater made for the Turkish market in 1817 decorated in vivid red enamel with Eastern Arabic numerals on its dial.
Also notable is montre a tact from 1799. Covered brilliant blue enamel, the “tactful watch” indicates the time with a diamond-set arrow on its outside, allowing the owner to feel the time inside his pocket so as not to offend his guests by taking out his watch.
The Breguet boutique is located at:
#B2-236 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
