World renowned watch brand Breguet reopened its doors to the Beverly Hills boutique Oct. 3 after a major renovation with a cocktail reception on Rodeo Drive and a ribbon cutting.
Opened in 2006, Breguet Boutique, located at 280 North Rodeo Drive, is the first store in the U.S. to be outfitted with
the brand’s new retail concept. The contemporary look of decorative
frosted glass is enhanced by guilloche designs in tribute to an art form
first introduced on watch dials by the brand’s founder,
Abraham-Louis Breguet. It also prominently displays the
Blue Breguet Hands, a universal signature of a prestigious timepiece.
In addition to the interior renovations, a specialty clock was installed
on the façade of the building. The clock is a replica of the Classique
Tourbillon model 3357 which is based on the original Tourbillon design
Thursday's ceremony was hosted by Mr. Rodolphe Schulthess, Breguet V.P. of Global Sales, Mr. Michael Nelson, Breguet U.S. Brand Manager and Mr. Frank Furlan, President, Swatch Group.
The celebration was amplified by String Theory, a collaborative ensemble of musicians and dancers that utilize invented instruments and sonic sculpture to create their unique performance landscape and sonic footprint.
The evening also marked the U.S. launch of the global traveling exhibition, “Breguet the Innovator. Inventor of the Tourbillon,” which will be on display at the Beverly Hills boutique through Saturday, Oct. 19.
