BREGUET 8 Days Desk Clock, No. 3824

CHF 7,000


Extremly rare and collectable BREGUET, “8-days Barometer & Thermometer” desk timepiece, case no. B 3824, made late 1930s. According to the Archives of Montres Breguet, the present desk clock appears under the following description “Montre 8 jours, baromètre thermomètre, sur cadran rectangle métal chromé, socle à rotule métal doré et chromé. Vendue à M. Exbrayat le 5 septembre 1939 pour la somme de 2000 francs”.

Based on our research M (Monsieur) Exbrayat, mentioned by Breguet archives is most likely a well known french fiction writer Charles Exbrayat, who lived in Geneva, Switzerland at the time and was 33 years old!

A very fine and extremely rare, unusual and attractive, swivel rectangular-shaped chromed and gilt brass 8-days desk timepiece with matte silvered dial, Breguet numerals, thermometer indicating the temperature in Celsius and in Fahrenheit, barometer with silvered matte dial to the right side, both dials with gilt brass bezels, Fitted with a round mechanical movement, rectangular case with winder, hour setting and regulator in the back plate, on pivoting cylindrical chromed and gilt brass feet, stepped chromed and gilt brass rectangular-shaped base. Dial signed and numbered.

To the best of my knowledge, the present clock is the second one to ever appear on the market, the first one was sold by Christies for 21,000.- CHF in Nov 2008.

Clock is in overall very good 8/10 condition, running and ready to use or gift!

Dimensions : 20 x 10 cm.
