Anyone living in Switzerland has certainly heard or read about this guest. Roger Köppel is a journalist, politician, media entrepreneur and much more. For example, a watch enthusiast. Together with René Beyer, he discusses time, what it means to him and how he prefers to spend it.
While the House of Breguet is primarily known for its major influence on watchmaking and its iconic timepiece collections, the name Breguet is also associated with the world of aviation. Louis Charles Breguet, great-great-grandson of Abraham-Louis Breguet, was one of the great pioneers in the field, while the House of Breguet made a name for itself with the Type XX aviation chronographs.
Today, Breguet adds to its remarkable collection with a new, decidedly sporty and modern model, the Type XXI 3815 chronograph.
They operate hotels in three cities, properties across Switzerland, a roller coaster at the Prater in
Vienna – and the Uhrenmuseum zum Rösli in Zurich’s District 6: René Beyer meets Peter and Ronald Neufeld.
After a house move, her grandmother’s earrings were nowhere to be found: bestselling author Silvia Aeschbach went in search of a replacement pair – and found it at Beyer.
The bond between the Rolex founder and the Beyer family is commemorated
by a warm exchange of letters – and a special watch.
