On Wednesday, Breguet held a private cocktail reception at the Tourbillon Boutique in San Francisco to celebrate its ladies’ timepiece collection. The event was hosted by Brand President of Breguet U.S. and Canada Peter Kramer and Navid Armstrong.
On view were models from the Reine de Naples collection. The mechanical watch series is inspired the Queen of Naples, Caroline Bonaparte Murat. In 1810, Abraham-Louis Breguet made the first wristwatch in history for her, elegantly designed with a now iconic oblong shape. Breguet transformed a mechanical watch into high jewelry, an historic moment highlighted in San Francisco with a reproduction from the archives of the Breguet Museum in Paris. Alongside the Queen of Naples, the watchmaker counts Queen Marie-Antoinette and Queen Victoria as women of note among its past patrons.
Also on view at the Tourbillon Boutique was the $1.7M Full Crazy Flower watch with over 58-carats of hinged diamonds, allowing for dazzling movement.
