Breguet: Art and Innovation in Watchmaking  explores the history of the watch and clock maker Breguet. The company’s cutting-edge innovations transformed the nature of personal timekeeping, and the exhibition includes displays describing the technology that earned Abraham-Louis Breguet his sobriquet as “the father of modern horology.” See photos from the exhibition below.
