There is no definite lifestyle for modern urbanites — everything can change
based on their personal preference each and every day. Not surprisingly, sometimes you can
spot women wearing men’s watches as well.

a glamourous party, in which they can lift their wrist to check the time while creating
a dazzling sparkle on their diamond-encrusted watch.
Queen of Naples is an ultimate watch from Breguet. While the Queen of Naples Ref.8928 is seemingly basic, it features iconic elements inside the oval 18K white gold case, 24.95 x 33.0mm in size.
