Reine de Naples 8939 Haute Joaillerie
Aesthetic splendor meets technical brilliance
When Breguet launched its Reine de Naples model, it was a watershed moment for its dial design and the large numerals were an instant hit with aficionados.
Perhaps buoyed by this success, the designers at Breguet have now come up with a jewellery watch that also exemplifies the brand’s technical brilliance.
The Reine de Naples 8939 Haute Joaillerie watch, is presented in a case entirely set with baguette-cut diamonds. But what lies within is what raises this timepiece from a mere piece of fine horological jewellery to a technical masterpiece in its own right. The pavé setting of baguette diamonds on the dial is the result of painstaking labour, exceptional precision and expertise on the part of Breguet’s craftsmen. Both its precisely cut gemstones and the complex, multistep invisible setting make each dial truly unique. Manually engine-turned in silvered gold, the off-centered dial plate features a pear-cut diamond at 6 o’clock while mother-of-pearl rays mark the hours.
A magnificent bracelet in pink Akoya pearls from Tahiti adds its luster to the dial’s mother-of-pearl inlays. You can also opt for a dazzling diamond-set bracelet and the discreet elegance of a satin strap.
