BREGUET in the Heart of Europe: Waterloo 1815-2015
Breguet marked its presence at the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo as a major private sponsor of the conservation of Hougoumont Farm. One of the last authentic testimonies to the battle, Hougoumont seeks to work toward peace and stability in Europe. The inauguration of this important piece of history following restoration work and repurposing as a museum, took place in the presence of Marc A. Hayek, President & CEO of Breguet, members of European royalty, leading politicians and the international press. It ended with a symbolic handshake between the Duke of Wellington, Prince Blücher von Wahlstatt and Prince Charles Bonaparte.
