Breitling is honoring this classic chronograph’s legacy with the AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition.
The Nantucket miniature watch is back with the “Anchor Chain” motif. Its case sprinkles diamonds across a dial illuminated with asymmetrical gem-set links.
A few days after Jacques Duchêne passed away, I searched various print and online newspapers for articles on this truly exceptional personality in Swiss watchmaking. And was surprised by how little I found. As though a career spanning several decades could be written in the sand when he left us pages that are carved in the stone of an era. And so I would like to briefly remember him here.
