The first stop - quite unexpectedly - is the Eiffel Tower. The iconic iron lattice structure named for its builder, engineer Gustave Eiffel, was engraved on the sides underneath the first balcony with 72 names of the city's scientific heroes, which include a gold-colored "Breguet" in 60-centimeter-high letters (the engraving was painted over at the beginning of the twentieth century and restored in 1987 and 2011). While it might be logical to think this is in reference to Abraham-Louis, remember that the Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 as an homage to technology meant to impress visitors to the World's Fair held in the city of lights in that year. Thus, the word "Breguet" actually signifies Louis-Fran? ois-Clement Breguet, grandson of the great watchmaker, who was appointed to the Bureau of Longitudes in 1843 and awarded the Legion d'Honneur in 1845 for his work with watchmaking, physics and telegraphy.

The street name, which means "Quay of the Clock," refers to a large, famous clock at house number one, just a few blocks down. Located on the Tour de l'Horloge of the former royal palace and prison La Conciergie (part of the large Palais de Justice), it was the first public clock in Paris, installed around 1370 and subsequently refurbished several times. It was commissioned by Charles V and created by Henri de Vic, a clockmaker from the Lorraine region of France. Additionally, during that era several watchmakers such as Ferdinand Berthoud and Jean-Antoine Lepine (who were also both watchmakers to the French king) had set up shop on this riverside street in Ile de la Cite.
