Breguet Reine De Naples Princesse 8965

Breguet welcomes a new reference to the Reine De Naples Princesse line, an elegant collection of feminine timepieces inspired by the first wristwatch created by A.-L. Breguet for Caroline Murat in 1810.

The new Reine de Naples Princesse 8965 has a gentle, subtly cambered rose gold oval case that makes a pleasing contrast with the clean-cut, resolutely graphic lines of its engine-turned dial. The extremely pure white mother-of-pearl dial follows the curve of the case, thereby creating an unusual depth effect highlighting the two large, equally rounded rose gold hour-markers appearing at 6 and 12 o’clock. Visible through the sapphire crystal case back  is Calibre 591C, a mechanical self-winding movement crafted in keeping with the finest watchmaking traditions. Its oscillating weight is in solid gold, hand-engraved on a rose engine.
This new 43 x 34.95mm model joins the 8968 references, available with a silvered gold or anthracite dial. It’s now diamond-set bezel enhances the radiance of the crown and the ball-type lug, respectively set with an inverted diamond and with brilliant-cut diamonds.

Fitted with a leather strap, this elegant and sophisticated model is also available with a rose gold link bracelet, secured by a medallion buckle.
