October-January 1st-10th, 2015

Tue.–Sun. through Jan. 10, 9:30 a.m.–5:15 p.m.

Legion of Honor

This exhibition explores the history of the watch and clock maker Breguet, which from its beginnings in 1775 Paris advanced such technical developments as the self-winding watch, the first wristwatch, the repeating mechanism, and, most notably, the tourbillon, a revolutionary movement that neutralizes the negative effects of gravity on pocket watches. $15, 415-760-3600,
