Breguet is pleased to unveil a new timepiece inspired by the wristwatch created two centuries ago on request of Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples. The Reine de Naples watch is a perfect embodiment of the brand’s unique approach to fine watchmaking.
The new highly feminine Breguet watch demonstrates a gently curving egg-shaped case with a crown at 4 o’clock and the signature ball-lug that unites the case and the bracelet. The case is sculptured from steel and has acquired a slightly larger size (43.75 x 35.50 mm) if compared to its predecessors.
The previous versions of the watch were rendered in gold and decorated with diamonds, the latest model in steel is perfect for daily wearing, having yet maintained its outstanding refinement. It has maintained all the signature details of the Reine de Naples model, including the nicely curving feminine case featuring a fluted case-band, the off-set crown, and the 6 o’clock ball-lug linking it to the grey alligator leather strap fitted with a steel folding clasp. The facetted crown is set with a “briolette-cut” diamond.
The elegance of the white mother-of-pearl dial is further enhanced with two relief-painted Arabic numerals. It features the individual series number of the piece. The time is shown by Breguet hollow “moon” tip hands crafted in blued steel.
Those who enjoy keeping one’s eyes on the inner life of the movement can admire the mechanical self-winding Breguet movement, Calibre 591C, via the sapphire-crystal case-back. The 25-jewel movement offers 38 hours of power reserve.
Reflecting the best watch making traditions, the solid gold oscillating weight of the movement is manually engraved on a rose engine. The mechanism incorporates a silicon escapement demonstrating the brand’s experience in advanced technology. The highly innovative material has been also used for the balance-spring to guarantee the anti-magnetic movement’s top precision and reliability.
The new Breguet Reine de Naples watch is 30-meter water-resistant. The lady's watch has also been created with a blue dial and strap.
