I am hoping to have occasion to buy my grail (a Breguet 7147) for my 40th in 2021. The plan is to buy while traveling in Europe. I realize this probably isn't the way to maximize the savings overall, but because this is a once-in-a-lifetime purchase for me I wanted to do it in a memorable fashion.
Breguet's history is obviously complicated, with AL himself being from Switzerland/Prussia, founding his empire in France, only to have it eventually go back to Switzerland. With that being said, would there be any significant difference in the asking price for a Breguet in Switzerland (as the country of manufacture) over, say, their flagship boutique in Paris? For the experience, I would prefer to purchase in France, but if there is a meaningful difference in cost I would at least explore the idea of doing so in Switzerland.
