Fit for a Queen

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

While not lit­er­ally de­signed for a royal princess, Breguet’s Reine de Naples Princesse Mini comes from a col­lec­tion in­spired by the first wrist­watch cre­ated by Louis Breguet for Caro­line Mu­rat, aka Caro­line Bon­a­parte, aka younger sis­ter of

Napoléon Bon­a­parte. With such a her­itage, ex­pec­ta­tions are high, and this new­est in­ter­pre­ta­tion cer­tainly doesn’t dis­ap­point. There’s the 18K white gold case, the bezel and lugs that are en­crusted with 64 Bril­liant-cut di­a­monds and also the laven­der-colored mother-of-pearl dial adorned with white mother-of-pearl mar­quetry. And then, there’s the crown of this Queen of Naples: A sin­gle Bri­o­lette di­a­mond sits on the—you guessed it— crown. Fi­nally, keep­ing this Queen of Naples tick­ing is a num­bered and signed Breguet move­ment.
