Reine de Naples 8925 is a luxury wristwatch for ladies by Breguet.

It was issued in December 2023 in a limited edition of 28 pieces.

A Queen’s watch

During her reign in Naples, Napoleon Bonaparte's younger sister, Caroline Murat was a passionate supporter of the arts, acquiring over 30 Breguet watches and clocks. In an era when women wore watches as necklaces, Caroline Murat placed a bold and avant-garde order with Abraham-Louis Breguet: she desired a timepiece that she could wear on her wrist. Thus, in 1810 Abraham-Louis Breguet began to work on this one-of-a-kind timepiece: the world's first wristwatch.

Conceived by a woman, created by a man this historic timepiece delivered in 1812, with undergoing repairs in 1849 and 1855, is documented in the Breguet archives, retracing the history and characteristics of this watch, which has since disappeared. This oblong creation with a silver guilloché dial was extremely dainty and included several complications including a minute repeater, a moon phase and a thermometer. Lastly a bracelet made of hair intertwined with gold threads allowed the timepiece to be worn on the wrist.

A new interpretation

This new interpretation from the House of Breguet celebrates love with subtle red accents delicately scattered across its white mother-of-pearl dial. The flange is set with 66 hand-set rubies, complemented by a bezel featuring a myriad of diamonds and a crown adorned with a cabochon-cut ruby. Discreet red hearts mark the hours on an offset chapter ring. The hours and minutes hands follow their passionate path, perfectly complementing the alligator leather strap. Additionally, the lug and folding clasp are adorned with hand-set diamonds.


At the heart of its 33mm egg-shaped case, 180 parts form the 586/1 self-winding movement with its 38-hour power reserve and 3 Hz frequency. This calibre is equipped with a balance spring made of silicon.
