The combination of red, white and blue will no longer remind you only of nautical adventures and sailing sojourns. Breguet has forever changed that association into one of eternal romance, going beyond the passages of time with a watch so pristine and dipped in love. It surpasses everything you have ever done for your beloved Valentine. The world may still be reeling in the after-effects of New Year’s Eve, but Breguet is a step ahead with the utterly romantic, limited edition Reine de Naples watch. The highlight of this timepiece is a surreal-looking dial that looks like a fluffy bed of clouds thanks to the mother-of-pearl base. Subtle hints of red bring out the love in this watch; first, at 12o clock, the swoosh of red dots aka, the trail of love, appears in red, indicating the 45-hour power reserve.
And then again as a lacquered double heart hand in the small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. The now oval watch (earlier, oblong shape) is an ode to femininity. It is inspired by the first wristwatch in history, delivered in 1812 to Napoleon’s sister, Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples. The dial of the heavens can’t be complete without the moon (is any love story?). The Reine de Naples watch flaunts a finely hammered moon-phase display is composed of white gold.
The bezel and case flange are sprinkled with a sparkling shower of 128 diamonds accompanied by open-tipped blued steel hands that indicate the hours and minutes. The movement at the heart of the new Reine de Naples 8905 is self-winding. A frequency of 3.5 Hz is the heartbeat of the 269-component movement and renders it water-resistant to 30 meters. The watch is completed with a blazing red alligator leather strap fitted with a white gold triple-blade folding clasp set with 28 diamonds. Limited to only 28 pieces, the stunning Reine de Naples watch is an ideal gift for your Valentine.
