Recently, Breguet joined hands with retail partner Pendulum to invite several female VIP guests of the brand to celebrate Mother’s Day. The brand’s new timepieces fascinate guests, and the fascinating story between Empress Josephine and her daughter Hortense is fascinating.
In 1800, Josephine Bonaparte, later Queen Josephine, purchased a touch watch with a blue enamel gold case and diamond-inlaid touch hands around the case. Set with diamonds.
She left the masterpiece to her daughter, the Queen of the Netherlands, Hortense de Beauharnais. Ortense replaced the original decorative diamond with a larger diamond, and The back of the case is inlaid with the letter ‘H’ with a crown, making the timepiece more attractive.
