Breguet Reine De Naples Haute Joaillerie 8909

The reference 8909 from Reine de Naples collection is a sizzling beauty thaks to its iconic shape and exquisite bracelet set with diamonds and sapphires. Furthermore the dial displayed a studied mix of bluish natural mother-of-pearl, white gold and diamonds.  The combination was highlighted by baguette diamonds set into the bezel and case band. This year, the Breguet company’s artisans decided to create a version of this outstanding piece in rose gold.
While the first model evoked the immaculate snows of the North, this version calls to mind the warm tones of the East. The clarity of the diamonds on the bezel and case band are as stunning as ever, while the sapphires on the bracelet have given way to flaming red rubies. In this watch, the dial is more contrasted, with the crimson glow of the rubies standing out against Tahitian mother-of-pearl.Fitted with a self-winding movement, this timepiece shows the hours and minutes on a subdial in silvered gold set with diamonds. The aperture for the moon can be seen at 12 o'clock with the power-reserve indicator.  The diamonds in this jewellery watch total around 16 cts.
