A Sunday Morning History Lesson For You



Portrait Breguet 2953_lg copy copy--621x414

For many, cracking open the Sunday is likely a tradition you grew up with, and perhaps even carry on to this day.  While I can’t guide you to watch info in that medium, I can point you towards a very interesting article from the Wall Street Journal.

The article in question covers the history behind Abraham Louis-Breguet, his genius in watchmaking, and his eventual path to creating the very first wrist watch.  Who knows – this might even be good background to read up on before John’s book hits.


You can read the WSJ article here; let me know in the comments if you like these sort of educational-type posts on the weekends.


Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
