Abraham-Louis Breguet conceived the idea for his "Souscription" watches in 1794 while, exiled in Switzerland, during the French Revolution which forced him to leave Paris. The concept was brilliant and simple: to offer a watch to his clients that could be reserved in advance, for a down-payment of course and be delivered upon completion. To celebrate more than 200 years in the history of the Breguet firm, Montres Breguet created the "Souscription" set. The first set, No. 1, a unique set of both watches being cased in a platinum and 18K pink gold case, was sold during Antiquorum's Geneva auction "The Art of Breguet" on April 14, 1991. The current watch was initially part of one of the 300 sets produced and has just come back from a complete overhaul and still under warranty for 2 years.
