In 1810, Napolean Bonaparte’s sister, the Queen of Naples ordered a wristwatch from Breguet which was completed in 1812. Inspired by that bracelet watch, the entire Reine de Naples Collection by Breguet is dedicated to alluring and mesmerizing women. Throughout the course of its rich history, Breguet has enchanted some of the most prominent women in French royalty including Empress Josephine, the marquise de Condorcet, and Queen Marie-Antoinnette among others. In 2002, Breguet received a patent for the moon-phase mechanism used in the Reine de Naples watches.
This stunning collection consists of exquisitely crafted watches with elegant designs that truly live up to the moniker of "Watches fit for a queen". Giving them a distinctive appeal are the egg-shaped cases with the crown located at the 4 o’clock position. Another unique feature that adorns some of these watches are the single ball-shaped lugs located at the 6 o’clock position. Numerous exclusive and refined bracelets are available as options. There are leather straps in several shades, chain bracelets in yellow gold, Charlestone bracelets in white gold, natural pearl bracelets, and more.
