When the illustrious name of Breguet is mentioned I am always reminded of the following passage from Pushkin’s novel Eugene Onegin, “A dandy on the boulevards (…), strolling at leisure until his Breguet, ever vigilant, reminds him it is midday.”
Whilst Breguet are rightly famous for their divine horological masterpieces they also offer a fine range of luxury accessories including an impressive array of writing instruments.
One of these is a solid silver and sapphire fountain pen with a clip in the shape of a watch hand to remind us of the manufactory’s watch making heritage. This is a truly impressive piece and a must-have item for collectors of all things Breguet. It is also a true reminder of the connection between the watchmaker and the craft of writing bon mots. £1500/$2250.
