A Breguet hallmark, the Reine de Naples takes on an exclusive finery to reign with grace and delicacy in the world of women’s luxury watches.
Paying a special tribute to Caroline Murat, Napoleon Bonaparte’s youngest sister, is Breguet’s intention behind its Reine de Naples collection. And the reason? Renowned for her beauty, the woman who became queen consort of the sultry southern Italian city purchased 34 clocks and watches between 1808 and 1814. Among the creations achieved by the eponymous watchmaker at the company, was the first wristband watch in history in 1812! This timepiece was also notable for its oblong silhouette, which is now the hallmark of the elegant line of each reference belonging to the current ultra-feminine collection. The new model 9835 retains this distinctive feature with its 36.4 x 28.45mm white gold case set with 161 diamonds.
This model also bears an original display of the temporal information. On the magnificent mother-of-pearl dial with its multiple shades of blue, an aperture reveals the time. The diamond markers are indicated by a heart-shaped hand that extends or contracts as it revolves. These components are powered with precision by the 78A0 caliber. This automatic movement with a platinum oscillating weight provides 40 hours of power reserve. The offset crown at 4 o’clock embellished with a precious stone enables the watch to be set and wound. This edition of the Reine de Naples 9835 is limited to only 20 pieces and comes with a dark azure alligator leather wristband closed with a folding clasp. When Breguet decides to play the exclusivity card, luxury remains true to its noble origins.
