Gary Oldman is the Golden Globes winner in the category of “Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama,” for his portrayal as Sir Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. To help complete the actor’s portrayal of the legendary British Prime Minister, Breguet created a replica of his iconic pocket watch – the Breguet No 765 pocket watch. A permanent fixture at his side, it was affectionately known as “the turnip” and is memorialized in several Churchill biographies.

Inherited Pocket Watch Goes Down in History

Purchased in 1890, the rattrapante minute repeater, chronograph, with enamel dial, boasts a prominent chain at the waist seen in many celebrated Churchill photographs.
