Breguet Reine De Naples 8918

This year, Breguet is revisiting one of the bestsellers in its ladies’ collection, the Reine de Naples 8918 model, a mesmerizingly beautiful model leading the distinctly larger Breguet numerals into a merry dance.
A lively and joyful blue script mingles with the warm shimmer of rigorously selected Tahitian mother-of-pearl. The hand-guilloché natural white mother-of-pearl dial offset at 6 o’clock naturally draws the gaze to the striking sparkle of a pear-shape diamond. Delicately framing this face is a rose gold case set with brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel and flange, as well as a briolette-cut diamond on the crown.
The new Reine de Naples 8918 comes in two versions: one with a midnight blue satin-finish leather strap; and the other with a chain bracelet that closely resembles a supple rose gold ribbon. This curvaceous creation, housing a mechanical self-winding movement, ensures unique wearer comfort. It admirably embodies the innate elegance and creative spirit of Breguet.
