Breguet - Reine de Naples Coeur Eternal Love

Breguet Reine de Naples Coeur Eternal Love

With delicacy and subtlety, and as Valentine's Day approaches, Breguet enlivens the face of the Reine de Naples with a new invention: a hand in the shape of a changing heart. Its curves expand or contract as it makes its way around the elongated oval dial

The first wristwatch, the model no. 2639 was a treasure trove of ingenuity right from its origins in 1810. Breguet was inspired by this innovative watch and by the client, Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples, who commissioned it, for its iconic contemporary collection.
Today, for its new creation dedicated to women and to love, the House of Breguet has designed a new system protected by several patents. A mechanism changes the heart shape of the minute hand – off-center at 6 o’clock – depending on its position on the oval dial. Its curves stretch as the hand moves across the top half of the dial, and become more rounded at the bottom. A real heart that beats... Touches of vermilion red add to the intensity of the lines of the hours chapter, the leather strap, and the crown, which is adorned with a ruby. This luxurious and exclusive composition is brought to perfection with rose gold and diamonds.
This model is presented in an envelope clutch bag finished in grained calfskin leather and dyed vermilion red to match the clock.

Celebrating Delicacy and Romance

For the face of this new Reine de Naples, Breguet has opted for understated elegance. The heart-shaped minute hand moves over a sapphire-crystal dial, lacquered in white. Its tip, marked by a subtle red heart, indicates the minutes on the hours chapter, punctuated by tiny hearts every five minutes. For better readability, something dear to Breguet, the quarter numerals are distinguished by their size and their
outline, lacquered with vermilion. The hour, indicated by a drop of purple lacquer, appears in the center through a window. The rose gold of the dial flange and bezel is set with 128 diamonds. The setting of the folding buckle, also in gold, echoes the brilliance of the case, amounting to a total of approximately 0.94 carats.

The Magic of a Vibrant Heart, an ode to love

The latest invention of the House of Breguet is a minute hand composed of two independent arms, capable of twisting thanks to a set of gears to create a heart that is extended at 12 o’clock and more rounded at 6 o’clock. Equipped with an oval-shaped cam – mirroring the curves so characteristic of the Reine de Naples – the mechanism allows each of these arms to move at different speeds. This innovation, created exclusively for the Reine de Naples, is protected by four patents. The sapphire-crystal caseback of the rose gold case reveals the movement of the caliber, the 78A0. On the gold rim, the individual number of the watch is engraved, recorded in the archives of the House of Breguet, which have been maintained since the end of the eighteenth century.

With the Reine de Naples Cœur, Breguet conjures up the magic of love, thanks to an innovative hand that traces a heart of ever-changing shape. The delicate and unexpected combination of technique and romanticism.
