Breguet, Harry Winston, Blancpain, Glashütte Original, Jaquet Droz, Léon Hatot and Omega hold an extraordinary position in the history of the watchmaking industry. Each of them derives strength and prestige from its own unique history, and reinvents complications and high-end complications with supreme excellence. They specialize in designing, manufacturing and selling mechanical watches, the quintessence of the art of watchmaking, and are located at the very highest end of the market.
Backed best-swiss-watch-brands-ranking-rid-0.html. aaa grade swiss made replica watchesby their very rich watchmaking heritage – almost without exception, their distinguished past reaches as far back as the 18th century – these prestige and luxury brands continue to promote European watchmaking culture far and wide. The Swatch Group is therefore justly seen as a major ambassador for European art and the transmission of an exceptional legacy of horological savoir-faire.
