Icon20 Las Vegas WISCON 2018 Breaking News

Dear TRF:

I have admired watches for a long time....the attention to detail, parts, complications....a unique hobby that fascinates me -and as I know, many of you-

Today, I re-discovered a unique watch brand; I thought my meeting would be just 'another one' yet I fell in love with the passion, aesthetics and unbelieveable market presence (I was nicely surprised by their price points!)

It is my pleasure to announce.....

You have no idea what Breguet stands for. My quick meeting turned into HOURS just admiring. And when I saw the prices, I could not believe it! I thought of Breguet as an expensive brand...I was SO wrong.

Just a small teaser: watch box...not a special box but the one you get your watch in....no plastic here

The Breguet Marine has always been on my radar. We stopped in the boutique last time we were in Vegas and it's a gorgeous piece IRL as well. The Boutique staff were very professional, knowledgeable and genuine. I wish we could make this, but will have to get the next one on the calendar with the wife.
