DESCRIPTION

  • BREGUET REINE DE NAPLES 8928
     
    In 2012, Breguet celebrates the 200th anniversary of the delivery of the first wristwatch made by Abraham-Louis Breguet for Napoleon Bonaparte’s sister, Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples. Watch number 2639, ordered by Caroline Murat in 1810, took two years to be completed and delivered by the celebrated watchmaker. Unfortunately the watch disappeared in the course of and remains lost. The company thus had to turn to the archives where Abraham-Louis Breguet recorded all his works when it decided to launch a new collection inspired by the original timepiece. Breguet’s watchmakers found the description of an oblong minute-repeating watch with a thermometer on a strap made of hair and gold thread that had to be knotted around the wrist. The manufacturer interpreted this information into the design of the new Reine de Naples collection that it launched in 2002. Designed for women alone, this collection’s gentle elegance is derived from the indulgent curves of its egg-shaped case and such mechanical complications as the phases of the moon. 
     
    The celebration of these two anniversaries entails expanding the Reine de Naples collection with new versions. Breguet thus introduces a reference with a case in rose gold on a satin strap. This model reveals a mother of pearl dial with minutes and hours hands off-centre at 6 o'clock. The hours chapter is distinguished by Roman numerals following the unique shape of the dial. This Reine de Naples model in rose gold inherits the family traits of the collection, notably the ball attachment at 6 o'clock and the winding crown set with a cabochon at 4 o'clock. The 139 diamonds totalling 1.32 carats set in the bezel, dial edge and attachment, add a touch of elegance. Since all Breguet timepieces are only fitted with mechanical movements, this watch is powered by the self-winding calibre 586 movement with a Swiss in-line lever escapement and a silicon balance-spring. It has a power reserve of 38 hours and a balance frequency of 21,600v/h. To cater for all tastes, Breguet also offers versions with dials of silvered gold paved in diamonds with mother-of-pearl chapter rings and Arabic numerals, as well as versions with rose gold bracelets.
