Breguet shows six new variantsBASELWORLD 2017: The line Reine de Naples in the mini version
The year 2017 also sees the arrival of a new addition to the Reine de Naples Mini line, now available in six additional variations. The famous mother-of-pearl dial and its off-centred 6 o’clock chapter ring remain the principal characteristics of this model, alongside its dainty 33 x 24.95mm size. The chapter ring is now graced with generously-sized graphic Arabic numerals designed to match the unique case shape.
The six references unveiled this year pick up the aesthetic codes of the Reine de Naples collection, including the “ball-type” lug – in this instance paved with diamonds, as well as a winding crown topped with a briolette-cut diamond at 4 o’clock. The sense of opulent prestige continues on the bezel, flange and folding clasp in gold, finely set with brilliant-cut diamonds.
Continuing the tradition of equipping Breguet ladies’ watches with exclusively mechanical self-winding movements, the new Reine de Naples Mini houses Calibre 586/1 with a silicon balance spring. It has a 38-hour power reserve and beats at a frequency of 3Hz. This refined model is a true watchmaking gem available with a black satin strap or chain bracelet in rose or white gold. Clients wishing to opt for the white gold version can also choose a dial with pink-rimmed numerals, complemented by a pink leather strap matching the colourful details on the chapter ring.
