The Reine de Naples 8938 is Breguet’s latest addition to its iconic and exclusive collection of ladies’ watches. To list the versions of the Reine de Naples that we have seen appear since its launch in 2002 would be an enormous task, worthy of a monograph on this legendary timepiece. This may lead us to think that it is impossible to create new versions of this timepiece, but the creative level of the Swiss watchmaking industry and even more so of Breguet knows no limits. Let’s see what this 8939 has to offer.

Obviously, the case of this Breguet Reine de Naples 8938 retains the unmistakable design of this collection and its dimensions are 36.5 x 28.45 millimeters. Breguet offers two versions of this Reine de Naples: with white gold case and pink gold case. The first one is equipped with a blue alligator leather strap and the second one opts for the orange color.

Both the bezel and the inner flange are decorated with a setting of 161 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling approximately 1.82 carats. On the crown we find a briolette-cut diamond, which is usually translated as pear-cut. This is one of the oldest known types of cut, but rare today due to the large amount of material wasted from the rough diamond.

The sophistication of these settings is evident, but the distinguishing factor of the Reine de Naples 8938 lies in its dial and the spectacular snow-type setting that decorates it. The name of this type of setting could not be more appropriate since, like the infinite layer of water crystals that forms a blanket of snow, here it is the carbon crystals, the diamonds, that form a dazzling layer.

Unlike more traditional settings, the “snow” setting uses stones of very different sizes and the aim is to cover almost the entire surface on which it is applied. The setting artist acts as if he were in front of a puzzle, where he must choose each diamond according to its size and the hole to be covered.

It is at the bottom of the dial that Breguet places a large mother-of-pearl ring, where the 12 hour-markers are positioned. As it could not be otherwise, the typical typography we call “Breguet numerals” is used for these indexes. To indicate this index, another of the great aesthetic signs of the legendary watchmaking firm is used: the Breguet hands.

It is important to note that there are very few watches with an extremely artistic character, which at the same time are able to offer a clear and easy reading of time. This Breguet Reine de Naples 8938 is one of them.

The sapphire crystal on the case back allows us to admire the calibre 537/3, a self-winding mechanical movement that uses silicon to make the escapement wheel, the pallet lever and the balance spring. On its oscillating weight we find the characteristic Guilloché decoration that Breguet regularly offers us. Its oscillating frequency is 3.5 Hz and its reservoir isThe time of march of 45 hours.

As always in these cases, the choice between the two versions that Breguet offers us of this Reine de Naples 8938, is a totally subjective matter. It is also true that the color offered by each type of gold implies a certain character. In short, white gold is the choice of women who prefer discretion. Rose gold is the option that emphasizes spectacularity.
