BREGUET REINE DE NAPLES 8958 CAMMEA

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - WATCH CULTURE -

The es­teemed house of Breguet chose to show­case its métiers d’art with a rooster en­graved on nat­u­ral seashell, a tech­nique called cameo which orig­i­nates from Torre del Greco, near Naples. The artist will use a steel sty­lus to carve through the var­i­ous lay­ers of the shell, a par­tic­u­larly del­i­cate task, not made any eas­ier by the fact that Breguet’s sig­na­ture is done through that shell as well, and the watch’s hours and min­utes hands are placed through it. This work of art is pre­sented in Breguet’s fa­mous Reine de Naples col­lec­tion as a ladies’ watch.
