Inspired by Abraham Louis Breguet’s first watch for Caroline Murat, the biggest feature of the Queen of Naples series is its exquisite case shape. The elegant arc is a tribute to women and a tribute to the origin of life. Although this symbolic case has long been recorded in history, Breguet watchmakers have chosen to interpret it in a modern way while retaining its essence.
The Queen of Naples series 8986 ‘Princess’ is undoubtedly the model of this famous Breguet timepiece series, with both modern style and fashionable features. This watch cleverly uses lines and space, depth and color to guide people’s attention to the dimension of time. While keeping the oval shape, the case is slightly curved to fit the wrist. This technical improvement not only ensures comfortable wearing; it is also conducive to showing its graceful look from different perspectives.
The concise dial continues the lines of the case, bringing a layered visual effect, highlighting the hour scale with the same slight arc at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock. The gold dial is engraved with a manual control and draws attention with perspective and contrast. The crown is set with an inverted diamond, and the spherical lugs are set with brilliant-cut diamonds, adding a finishing touch to the watch.
