Footnotes

This Breguet watch contains many of the typical enhancements to Horology that Breguet pioneered and have been adopted (in some fashion) in watchmaking to this day. The famous Parachute spring system to protect the balance (shock resist systems) and the bi-metallic curve for accurate temperature compensation (compensation balances).
