Lot Essay

The Reine de Naples production line is easily recognizable by the oval-shaped case and decorative dials. The original inspiration for the watch model comes from an early bracelet watch Abraham-Louis Breguet created for Napolean Bonaparte's sister, Caroline. Caroline was the Queen of Naples, hence the name of the watch model.

The presently offered example is in very good condition and is offered as complete with its box and papers.
