  • Catalogue Essay

    The elegant Reine de Naples collection is inspired by an early bracelet watch Abraham-Louis Breguet created especially for Bonaparte’s sister Maria Caroline of Austria, the Queen of Naples. The present watch is set with the highly distinguished egg-shaped case and features an automatic movement. The dial is further enhanced with pave-set diamonds and natural mother-of-pearl chapter ring and the crown is also set with a brilliant-cut diamond. Offered in excellent overall condition, the present watch is a symbol of feminine refinement of contemporary jewellery watches.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1775

    Established in 1775 by Abraham Louis Breguet, widely considered the greatest watchmaker of all time, the storied brand continues to thrive in the modern era, creating exceptional high-end watches as the Swatch Group's premier prestige brand. Some of the most important and lasting inventions in watchmaking are attributed to Abraham Louis Breguet, including the tourbillon, shock resistance and the use of hammers and gongs employed in nearly all minute repeating watches made since.

    Eighteenth and nineteenth century Breguet pocketwatches are especially sought-after by collectors, and many of them were made for the elite of European society, including Napoléon and Marie Antoinette. Key wristwatches from the twentieth century include oversized dress watches, two-register chronographs, triple calendars and Type XX aviator's chronographs made for the French military and civilians.
