photo3-150Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the invention of the wristwatch, Breguet is running it’s Queen of Naples exhibit in their Las Vegas boutique until June 3rd. Abraham-Louis Breguet created the first ever wristwatch in 1812 for Queen of Naples, Caroline Murat. In 1810, Caroline Murat (sister of Napoleon Bonaparte), commissioned Abraham-Louis Breguet to create the first ever timepiece to fit around her wrist. In an era when timepieces were typically pocket watches and clocks, Breguet began work on yet another innovation destined for the history books. The historical timepiece was delivered in 1812 and the Queen of Naples’ commission would become watch no. 2639.
