Breguet Reine de Naples Watch - Created for All Circumstances

Sep 08, 2011
The Reine de Naples watch was originally created by Breguet two centuries ago for Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples.


Today, the brand offers a new version of the iconic model, lending it a distinctly contemporary feel. The new Breguet Reine de Naples watch is set in an egg-shaped steel case with a finely fluted band. Its measurements are 43.75mm x 35.50 mm.

The model features a sapphire-crystal case-back and a facetted crown at 4 o’clock, set with a “briolette-cut” diamond. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 30 meters.

The new Breguet watch is complimented by a dial in white mother-of-pearl. It is individually numbered and signed Breguet. The dial sports an off-centered chapter ring at 6 o’clock.

The display is also equipped with relief-painted Breguet Roman numerals, placed at 6 and 12 o’clock. The display ensures hours and minutes, indicated by Breguet hollow “moon” tip hands in blued steel.

The new Breguet Reine de Naples watch is constructed around a self-winding mechanical calibre 591C movement, numbered and signed Breguet. It incorporates a 22-carat gold oscillating weight hand-engraved on a rose engine.

Integrated within the movement are also a balance-spring, lever and escape-wheel, made of silicon. Paved with 25 jewels, the caliber operates at a frequency of 4Hz and supplies a 38-hour power reserve.

The new Breguet watch is accompanied by a grey alligator leather strap with a steel folding clasp. The strap is attached to the case by means of a ball-lug at 6 o’clock.
