A BE­JEW­ELLED FAVOURITE

Marwar - - Special Feature -

The Reine de Naples line harks back to the first wrist­watch cre­ated by A-L Breguet, the cel­e­brated founder of brand Breguet, for his em­i­nent client, Caro­line Mu­rat, the Queen of Naples, in 1810. Among the lat­est to join the fam­ily and cast its inim­itable spell on present -day queens, fash­ion­istas and di­vas alike is the new Reine de Naples Princesse 8965, which takes af­ter ref­er­ences 8968—two ear­lier mod­els with sil­vered gold or an­thracite di­als—with a be­jew­elled avatar. An epit­ome of fem­i­nin­ity and bold­ness, the Reine de Naples Princesse 8965 draws on the al­lure of jew­els and the in­her­ent grace and de­sign aes­thet­ics of the Reine de Naples line to re­assert the cre­ative ge­nius of brand Breguet. Its sub­tly cam­bered rose gold oval case, con­trasted with res­o­lute geo­met­ric lines on an en­gine­turned dial, of­fers a new, fas­ci­nat­ing di­men­sion to the in­di­ca­tion of time. Mim­ick­ing the gen­tle curve of the case, the white mother-of­pearl dial curves also, cre­at­ing an im­pres­sion of depth, high­light­ing the large rose gold hour­mark­ers at 6 and 12 o’clock. Scor­ing high on the lux­ury quo­tient, the bezel and the ball-type rounded lug at the base of the case flaunt di­a­monds, while a me­chan­i­cal self-wind­ing move­ment (Cal­i­bre 591C) un­der­scores su­pe­rior func­tion­al­ity. The Reine de Naples Princesse 8965 comes in op­tions of al­li­ga­tor leather strap (with a gold fold­ing clasp set with 29 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds) or rose gold bracelet set with 104 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds.
