REINE DE NAPLES 8925 Breguet

REINE DE NAPLES 8925 Breguet


Like time, love contains an element of eternity, and this pure, noble sentiment puts its flamboyant signature on the pearly face, also pure and noble, of the queen of feminine watches imagined in the heart of the Vallée de Joux.

The vermilion hue is often associated with passionate love, and it’s precisely this vivid yet profound shade that Breguet has chosen to scatter a few notes here and there on its Reine de Naples 8925. Limited to just 28 pieces, this most elegant timepiece for women’s wrists, inspired by the special relationship between Caroline Murat (1782-1839) and her watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), who created the first wristwatch for her between 1810 and 1812, not only celebrates this pure, noble and furiously exhilarating sentiment on Valentine’s Day, but also delivers a message of eternal emotion 365 days a year.

A fine band of 66 rubies affixed along the flange embraces with its flamboyance the oval of the diaphanous face made of natural white mother-of-pearl, a rounded silhouette followed by the long line of black-lacquered Breguet numerals. Off-centered at 6 o’clock, a circle of dark dotted lines intersected by small scarlet hearts placed every five minutes, hosts a pair of Breguet-style hands. Their short, red-varnished bodies end in a hollowed “apple“ and a point to indicate the hours and minutes.

The ovoid white gold case with fluted sides measures 33×24.95mm and is 8.5mm thick. 73 diamonds adorn the bezel like a sparkling ribbon and line the spherical attachment, while a cabochon ruby punctuates the crown at 4 o’clock. This precious case houses the calibre 586/1, an automatic movement with a silicon balance spring, indispensable for its precision and longevity, beating at a gentle 3hz frequency and providing 38 hours of power reserve. This exclusive Reine de Naples 8925 is worn on the wrist thanks to two strands of coral red alligator leather linked by a buckle covered with 28 brilliants.
