On May 10, 2016, Royal Jewelers will bring a museum piece right to the hands of collectors with its exclusive showing of the Breguet N 5 perpétuelle pocket watch, one evening only.

“Timepieces of this historical relevance and rarity are never available for such intimate viewings." - Steven Leed, President, Royal Jewelers

This historically significant watch is being shown in a private reception to collectors on May 10, 2016. The Breguet N 5 watch is a clone of the original that was sold to Count Journiac-Saint-Meard in 1794. It is the only Breguet N 5 that is available for private sale, the few others are in private collections with the exception of the one in the Breguet Museum in Paris.

Royal Jewelers President, Steven Leed commented, "Ordinarily if you wanted to see a watch like this it would be behind guarded unbreakable glass in a museum."

The Breguet N 5 is one of the world’s first automatic timepieces. Introducing the technologically advanced and expensive “perpétuelles”. With it’s gold case and sliver engine-turned dial, and moon phases, the Breguet N 5 watches were originally owned by only a few member of the aristocracy, namely Queen Marie-Antoinette and the duc d'Orléans. This Breguet N° 5 reproduction is a true masterpiece of technological genius and enduring beauty and is one of just a few with a silver hand- engraved dial.

Brand President at Breguet US, Mike Nelson says, “We are delighted to once again partner with Royal Jewelers whose discerning collectors have a deep appreciation for watches. It was a natural fit to have Steven offer this opportunity to his loyal clientele, so we were happy to facilitate the showing.”
