Breguet recently hosted an exclusive ‘gentlemen’s lifestyle evening’ at its London boutique in honour of Sir Winston Churchill, a distinguished client of the brand.
For the event, Breguet bought together some of Mayfair’s most prestigious craftsmen, whom specialise in luxury goods and have a historical connection to the illustrious British stateman.
Featuring a variety of craftsmanship, the cocktail reception gave nearly 60 VIP guests the unique opportunity to discover Breguet’s watchmaking world while gaining an insight into a selection of Winston Churchill’s favourite local products, including among others, limited edition spirits and cigars, gourmet delicacies or hand-crafted bespoke leather shoes.
The evening’s highlight was an exclusive presentation given by Churchill’s great grandson, Randolph Churchill, emphasising the former Prime Minister’s passion for Breguet timepieces.
Participants also had the privilege to admire the famous Breguet pocket watch N°765 that belonged to Churchill and which is currently exhibited at the Imperial War Museum in London.
The boutique’s windows additionally showcased a number of antique Breguet pieces placed next to contemporary collections; a striking way to observe how history and modernity are closely intertwined.
