The Breguet Queen Of Naples Series, The Female No. 1 Watch Of The Napoleon Family

The 200th anniversary of the birth of Breguet’s first wrist watch exhibited a refined royal home scene.
To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the first watch in the history of Breguet watchmaking, and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch of the ‘Queen of Naples’ series, Breguet was at the Swatch Peace Art Center in Shanghai from April 18th to May 3rd. Held the 200th anniversary exhibition of the first watch. The exhibition showcases this watchmaking story and its continuity in contemporary wrists with rich historical materials, exquisite royal home scenes and the striking ‘Queen of Naples’ series.
的 Domineering background of NO.2639
追溯 To trace the first well-documented wristwatch in the world, we must first define the ‘wristwatch’ itself: must the chronograph with the dial as the main part and the strap be called the ‘wristwatch’? Can a dial mounted on jewelry such as a bracelet count as a watch? And when the latter is mounted on an extremely professional dial, this becomes a problem. However, from another perspective, if only ‘made for wearing on the wrist’ is judged, then Breguet’s No. 2639 for the Queen of Naples, Carolina, took the first place.
It is well known that Breguet has a good relationship with Napoleon’s Bonaparte family. In the 18th to 19th centuries, the Napoleon family customized several watches to Breguet. In 1810, Napoleon’s younger sister, Carolina, presented an unusual order to Breguet: a large complex mechanical watch. According to Breguet’s historical archives, this watch is an ‘oval bracelet chronograph watch’, which began to be produced in 1810, took two and a half years, and was finally delivered to Carolina in the end of 1812. And Carolina was the queen of Naples.
Breguet has always been very good at drawing inspiration from its long history to make new models worthy of fun, so in 2002 it launched the ‘Reine de Naples’ series (Reine de Naples) with a replica nature. This is Breguet The first collection of watches exclusively for women.
Unlike ordinary replica watches, the ‘Queen of Naples Series’ does not have the actual object or sketch or picture of No. 2639 for reference. Its true appearance has always been hidden in a certain corner of the long river of history and has never been seen by today See you. No matter the shape or movement, you can only look for it in the vast historical data. It was not until 1849 in the maintenance memo that people got some more detailed information: ‘Ultra-thin, silver dial, Arabic numerals, thermometer, fast / slow indication on the dial, bracelets mounted on gold thread On the simple gold key, the second bracelet comes with a braided gold-red leather case.
Oval logo and unique egg-shaped case
Such alternative reproductions are undoubtedly exciting and challenging. Lu Keqin, Vice President of Breguet China, said: ‘The Breguet is a combination of inspiration from history and new fields under the leadership of new leaders. We do not copy the founders as they are. The design and watchmaking process are traditional, but the materials and technology are new. ” The Queen of Naples ‘series has created a unique egg-shaped case under the premise of following the iconic characteristics of’ oval ‘, At the same time, the dial’s aesthetic understanding of “honor and elegance” is fully exerted. In this series we can see delicate shell carvings on different models, moon phase indicators, convex round sapphire set on the crown, sapphire crystal transparent case back, and leather straps and pearls different from bracelets. Straps, diamond straps … and the hour-sponsoring spring mechanism and self-winding movement are also unequivocal.
However, for today’s people, the greater significance of NO. 2639 and the ‘Queen of Naples’ series does not stop with the creation of the watch concept in the era of pocket watches, it is more about restoring history and raising some possibilities for modern concepts : Women’s watches are not born as ‘reduced men’s watches’ status; women’s watches are not a special series whose appearance needs are greater than the quality of the movement; and the watches are either born of men or the world of men. At the beginning, and as early as the early 19th century, there was a watch for women, No. 2639. This complicated watch with a thermometer and a bracelet inlaid tells us that sometimes changes in history are just a convenience. Plus a little bit of beauty.

①Reine de Naples 18K white gold watch, natural mother-of-pearl dial, topaz mirror, sapphire crystal case back, waterproof function.

② Reine de Naples 18K white gold watch. The bezel and dial flange are set with 139 diamonds, weighing approximately 1.32 carats.

③ The REINE DE NAPLES Cammea watch is proud of its long tradition of shell relief craftsmanship.
