BREGUET REINE DE NAPLES 8938 A QUEEN’S SPLENDOR
The Maison unveils a new addition to its collections: the Reine de Naples 8938. A delicate snow setting adorning the dial imbues it with luminosity and splendor. The Reine de Naples 8938 is available in white gold with a blue bracelet and in rose gold with an orange bracelet.
A QUEEN’S SPLENDOR
For over five centuries, decorating timepieces with precious stones has been a cherished watchmaking tradition. A technique that calls for great dexterity and unwavering patience. In contrast to the traditional concentric setting, the snow technique uses different sized stones to cover the dial, thereby keeping the visibility of the material upon which they are set to a minimum. The result is unmatched brilliance. Breguet rounds off the Reine de Naples 8938 dial with an off-center, natural white mother-of- pearl hours chapter at 6 o’clock. Breguet’s traditional numerals as well as its timeless moon- tipped hands dance upon the dial. The setting continues on the dial flange, the bezel, and the brilliant-cut diamond lug. It can also be seen on the rare and sophisticated cutting of the crown’s briolette-cut diamond. More than three carats of diamonds light up this precious timepiece. Aesthetics go hand in hand with technology here at Breguet, and the new Reine de Naples model is no exception, equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement, including an escapement and silicon balance spring. The latter comes to life all thanks to the movement of a finely engine-turned platinum rotor.
