Long considered an emblem of feminine watchmaking, the Reine de Naples collection draws its inspiration from the first wristwatch in history.
Beauty, poetry, music and art have one thing in common; they are all sonnets of the divine. Watchmakers can say the same for Breguet’s Reine de Naples. We can agree, especially for this new interpretation of Breguet, released in time for Valentine’s Day. Long considered an emblem of women’s watchmaking, the Reine de Naples collection draws its inspiration from the first wristwatch in history, delivered in 1812 to Napoleon’s sister, the elegant Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples. Today, this timepiece which originally had an oblong shape has become oval. Each model in the contemporary collection, whether set with precious stones, beaded or lacquered, is an ode to femininity. The whimsical dial bears an airy sky whose reflections of white mother-of-pearl are dotted with “clouds”. At 12 o’clock, the trail of love appears in red to indicate the 45-hour power reserve. As if suspended from the clouds, the finely hammered moon phase display is made of white gold. The hour circle, located in the lower part of the dial, is set with hand-guilloché natural white mother-of-pearl, as is the center of the small seconds display. The open-ended Breguet hands in blued steel indicate the hours and minutes. Because every second is priceless in the realm of love, they are marked by a red lacquered double heart. To perfect these poetic touches, the bezel and flange of the white gold case are sprinkled with a sparkling shower of 128 diamonds. It stylishly signs a flamboyant red alligator leather strap fitted with a three-blade white gold folding clasp set with 28 diamonds. It’s time to wear your heart on your sleeve and your love on your wrist.
