In 1810, Abraham-Louis Breguet produced the first wristwatch for Caroline Murat, queen of Naples. This timepiece is noted for the delicate shape of its case with its elegant curves that, apart from being an ode to femininity, cannot but evoke the origins of all life. The watch is not only distinguished by its emblematic shape, but also by its movement.
While many watchmakers produce mechanical movements for men only, Breguet has since its beginnings designed mechanical timepieces for women. This year, the Reine de Naples collection welcomes two new versions to the expected delight of those with slender wrists. The seductive power of the collection is concentrated in these Reine de Naples Princesse Mini models, measuring 32.7 x 27.3mm.
