The name of Castaneda comes up in Abraham-Louis Breguet’s correspondence and appears frequently among the buyers in Breguet’s sales ledgers. As is explained by Emmanuel Breguet in his book, “Breguet Horloger depuis 1775”, Mr. Castaneda was one of the couriers. These were specialized companies handling commercial transactions as well as the transport of merchandise, in this case between France and Spain. Mr. Castaneda must therefore have been a Spanish businessman who traveled regularly to France, liaising with important Spanish clients, and particularly the Spanish royal court.
