Designed exclusively for womenThe shimmering Brilliance of the 2005 REINE DE NAPLES Collection
Created at Nicolas G. Hayek’s bidding and designed exclusively for women, the Reine de Naples collection has from the start enjoyed exceptional success. Two new models join the collection this year, adding ever more elegance to the female wrist.
Reine de Naples 8928
Petite, utterly feminine, sublimely suited for evening wear, the Reine de Naples 8928’s trim case lines house an extremely compact selfwinding movement. To ensure optimum rewinding, the movement’s manually engine-turned oscillating weight is fashioned in platinum – a metal heavier than gold. Sparkling, high-quality diamonds bring to life every part of this exceptional timepiece, from setting crown to bracelet link to flange and dial.
A magical alliance of shimmering diamonds and lustrous mother -ofpearl composes its pavé-set dial. The graceful calligraphy of Breguet numerals on the mother-of-pearl chapter ring, the blued steel hands and the caseband fluting confirm that this ti mepiece is indeed a Breguet, whose founder was the very first to design a watch for a woman’s wrist. A timeless design, forever a mark of refined elegance.
Reine de Naples 8939 Haute Joaillerie
In 2004, Breguet stunned the world with the innovative design of its new Reine de Naples model, whose much enlarged Breguet numerals immediately proved very popular. With this year’s Reine de Naples 8939 Haute Joaillerie model, Breguet goes a step further, creating a case entirely set with baguette-cut diamonds.
The dial features this design’s most spectacular technical achievement: a pavé setting of baguette diamonds that called for exceptional precision and expertise on the part of Breguet craftsmen. Both its specifically cut gemstones and the complex, multis tep invisible setting make each dial truly unique. Manually engine-turned in silvered gold, the off-centered dial plate features a pear-cut diamond at 6 o’clock while mother-ofpearl rays mark the hours.
A magnificent bracelet in pink Akoya pearls from Ta hiti adds its luster to the dial’s mother-of-pearl inlays. Also available are a dazzling diamondset bracelet and the discreet elegance of a satin strap.
