QUEEN OF NAPLES

24-7 (Singapore) - - Contents - By Alvin Wong

This sto­ried col­lec­tion from Breguet has stood the test of time

RE­FINED AND RE­SPLEN­DENT IN EQUAL MEA­SURE, THE QUEEN OF NAPLES COL­LEC­TION HAS EN­DURED THROUGH CEN­TURIES TO BE­COME A HALL­MARK OF FEM­I­NINE HAUTE HOR­LOGERIE. BREGUET AND 24:7 PRESENT THE LAT­EST REN­DI­TIONS OF THIS RE­GAL RANGE.

Women who de­sire pedi­gree in their time­pieces will find no finer match than in Breguet’s Queen of Naples col­lec­tion.

Orig­i­nally com­mis­sioned in 1810 by Caro­line Mu­rat, Napoleon’s sis­ter and the Queen of Naples, the watch has a royal lin­eage that has been man­i­fested in nu­mer­ous ways for over two cen­turies, rang­ing from mega-watt high-jewellery pieces to tech­ni­cally stun­ning com­pli­ca­tions. This year, the ma­jes­tic col­lec­tion swops its stately de­meanour for a slightly younger mien. Framed by sig­na­ture egg-shaped cases, the watches bran­dish mother-of-pearl di­als with over­sized nu­mer­als that lend con­tem­po­rary chic to their clas­si­cal spirit. Fur­ther en­liven­ing the col­lec­tion are coloured al­li­ga­tor strap op­tions that span navy to fuch­sia, or if one prefers, a charm­ing link bracelet for a more glamorous touch.

43.75 x 35.5mm steel case with match­ing bracelet, “brio­lette- cut” di­a­mond on crown, and Breguet Cal­i­bre 591C au­to­matic move­ment
