September 4th 2014 marks the official inauguration of the first Asian stopover of the international road show on the theme of Breguet’s decisive inventions. This event will take place in the world’s largest Breguet boutique, located in the extremely chic Xintiandi district. The space has been transformed into an authentic gallery for the occasion, to immerse guests in an authentic discovery. A concert given by the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra and a gala dinner in one of the most prestigious establishments in the city are the other highlights of the inaugural day.

For a whole month from September 4th to 30th 2014, the Breguet boutique at the Langham Hotel in Shanghai will be hosting the brand’s new exhibition that was launched in Geneva in January 2014.

Visitors are invited to discover unique timepiece that belonged to famous people. Each story celebrates a significant period such as the great writers but also the age-old ties between Breguet and Versailles.

To celebrate the arrival of its exhibition in China, Breguet has also organised an exclusive gala evening in three stages. Firstly, the company will give its guests an opportunity to relive certain key periods of its history through music. A performance by the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra awaits guests in the setting of the Concert Hall, which was previously known as the Nanking Theater. This will be followed by a gala dinner, and then an after party on the roofs of Shanghai.
