Born in 1729 Abraham-Louis Perrelet was an innovative watchmaker since his youth. His father was a farmer and carpenter, but was also a skilled craftsman, manufacturing extremely precise tools for local watchmakers. Working with his father, plowing fields and assisting with the joinery in winter months, sharpening saws and fashioning little bellows, Abraham-Louis developed a passionate interest in watchmaking. At the age of 20, he decided to focus entirely on watchmaking.

Through the years as his reputation as an inventor and skilled craftsman grew and his expertise was soon in great demand. He produced the first ever watches with cylinder, duplex, date and equation escapements. He perfected the finishing and enhanced the pinions, wheels, escapements and winding mechanism. Abraham-Louis Breguet was trained in his workshops as well as his grandson, Louis-Frédéric Perrelet, inventor of the split second chronograph. Amazingly his dexterity and extraordinary steadiness of hand did not diminish with age. The Musee Innternational d'Hortogerie in La Chaux de-Fonds houses what is surely one of his very last works, created at the age of 96. He passed away in 1826 having devoted almost 80 years to developing watchmaking techniques.
