Beauty of BreguetThe new REINE DE NAPLES watch
The REINE DE NAPLES is inspired by A.-L. Breguet’s first wristwatch made for Caroline Murat, queen of Naples. The success of this model since its launch in 2002 attests to the talent of Breguet’s watchmakers under the direction of Nicolas G. Hayek. The original shape of the case promises an astonishing timepiece, entirely feminine and exquisitely sensual.
This year the REINE DE NAPLES 8918 stretches the imagination with bewitching extravagance. The case, in yellow or white gold has a raised bezel delicately paved with diamonds. A briolette diamond embellishes the crown. Light teases across a mother-of-pearl face adorned with an exuberance of elastic Breguet numerals. Gone are the moon-phase and power-reserve indicator of the first REINE DE NAPLES models, but the hours and minutes remain off -centre in a diamond-set, engine-turned dial. A pear-cut diamond splinters light at 6 o’clock. Challenging convention, the new REINE DENAPLES watches are the expression of today’s free spirits and demonstrate Breguet’s vitality in the enthusiasm of its craftsmen and women.
