Equation Of Time Ref. 3477

€0 EUR

Since antiquity, the sun has been used as the basis of time. But the apparent movement of the sun, the true solar time indicated by the sundials, is not regular.

The equation of time is the difference between mean solar time – our conventional 24-hour civil time – and true solar time, which varies due to the irregular course of the earth around the sun. Mean solar time can thus be up to 16 minutes behind true solar time – this is the case on November 3 – or up to 14 minutes ahead – this is the case on February 12. Only four days a year, the two-strokes are of identical value.

Appointed Watchmaker to the Navy in 1815, A.-L. Breguet and his son created the most elaborate equation of time models of their time.

Automatic grand complication, perpetual calendar and power reserve, bisextile year, day, month date...

In the famous Empire case, crescent moon hands (specific to Bréguet), and silver  dial, all handmade.

Take a good look at the back of the watch with its hand-engraved movement as well. A true work of art...
