Breguet - Reine de Naples 8905

Breguet Reine de Naples 8905

The Reine de Naples (Queen of Naples) is one of the best selling timepieces of Breguet since its launch in 2002. Its unmistakable design takes inspiration from the watch that Breguet designed to be worn on the wrist of Caroline Murat (1782-1839), Napoléon Bonaparte’s younger sister and Queen of the reign of Naples.

Mounted on a wristlet of hair and gold thread, the Breguet watch number 2639 was the world’s first known wristwatch. The oblong-shaped creation with an engine-turned silver dial was very delicate and featured several complications including a repeater, a moon-phase indicator, and also a thermometer.

From its delivery in 1812 to repairs in 1849 and 1855, the Breguet archives have kept track of the history and characteristics of this watch. Today, it is unknown if the Queen of Naples watch still exists as no public or private collection lists it on its inventory.

The latest interpretation of this classic timepiece for Ladies, the new Reine de Naples Reference 8905 is adorned with mother-of-pearl in hues of pink and mauve, encircled by diamonds.

The oval and slightly elongated case (28.45 mm × 36.50 mm) is crafted from white gold with the typical fluted caseband. The bezel is set with 128 diamonds weighing approximately 0.77 carats while the crown is set with a pink sapphire weighing 0.3 carats.

The dial with small off-center seconds of the Reine de Naples 8905 is dressed in iridescent pale pink mother-of-pearl. A moon and several stars in white gold take their place against the deeper pink of the moon-phase indicator.

Hours and minutes are displayed in Roman numerals on a glossy circular hours chapter around an engine-turned Clous de Paris pattern. The small off-center seconds feature an engine-turned flame design. Lastly, there is a power-reserve indicator at the top of the dial.

The sapphire-crystal caseback displays the 537DRL2 self-winding manufacture movement, beating at a frequency of 3.5 Hz with 45 hours of power reserve. Each of the 246 components forming the calibre is carefully decorated in line with the highest Haute Horlogerie standards.

Completed by a perfectly matching mauve-coloured alligator leather strap, the Breguet Reine de Naples 8905 (ref. 8905BB/W2/964 D00D) is a limited. edition of just 28 pieces created for Valentine’s Day 2019. breguet.com
