To honor the most romantic day of the new year – Valentine’s Day 2019 – Breguet has prepared something truly magical. An updated model is inspired by the first Reine de Naples luxury watch created for Carolina Murat, the Queen of Naples, more than 200 years ago. This splendid timepiece plays with shimmering shades of pink and pale purple surrounded by a scattering of diamonds. The caliber with an automatic winding and function of the moon phase indicator represents the heart of this wonderful time device.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, the legendary Reine de Naples women’s wristwatch line was replenished with a new beautiful model. Inspired by the first-ever ladies’ jewelry timepiece, which Abraham-Louis Breguet produced for the Queen of Naples in 1812, the modern Reine de Naples was created by the house Breguet in 2002. Along with the historical model of 1812, all luxury watches of the Reine de Naples series have a unique shape: an elongated oval case with smooth curves gracefully stretched up. This year the wonderful creation of Breguet pleases the eye with a game of shades of pink and pale lilac. Another characteristic exquisite detail that distinguishes several previous models of the famous timepiece collection is the off-center small seconds' dial. The wristwatch case holds a caliber with the lunar phase function. In the framework of a limited edition, only 28 original time devices were created.
The dial of the Reine de Naples 8905 limited edition watches, dedicated to Valentine’s Day, is decorated with iridescent shimmering pale pink mother-of-pearl. The dial of the moon phase indicator of a more saturated pink color adorns the disk of the moon in the company of stars. As for the crown, it is decorated with a gently shining pink sapphire cut cabochon. The mallow-colored alligator strap adds another romantic touch. The delicate oval bezel is illuminated by the brilliance of diamonds, the scattering of which we can see on the edge of the dial field.
Thanks to the high art of Breguet masters, neoclassical numbers invented by the founder of the Watchmaking House Abraham-Louis Breguet are easy to read. The gold-tone dial is finished in mother-of-pearl and silver and is decorated with Breguet’s signature blued steel hands. The individual number of each luxury watch is placed at the top hour index.
Hours and minutes on the shimmering dial, the center of which is decorated with the “Clous de Paris” guilloche pattern, are indicated by Roman numerals, and a small seconds dial is ornamented with the “flame” guilloche technique. The final stroke is the power reserve indicator situated at the very top of the dial.
Fabricated of precious white gold, the case of Reine de Naples 8905 luxury watch contains a genuine treasure: a movement with a caliber 537DRL2 with an automatic winding and a nice 45-hour power reserve. Made of sapphire glass, the transparent case back allows you to see each of the 246 caliber elements carefully crafted in the best traditions of the Breguet brand.
