Alongside the Islamic display is the famous Sir David Salomons Collection of antique European watches and clocks, one of the world’s most important. The highlight of the display are the revolutionary watches and clocks made by the horological genius, Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823). Breguet’s technological innovations can be seen in his masterpiece, watch no. 160, the famous “Marie Antoinette”, commonly referred to as the “smartphone” of watches, and possibly the most valuable in the world.
