Description

First of all, let's talk about the stripes. The relief stands on the dial contrast with the ridges on the case, which is perfectly square in shape, a rarity in itself! Although this watch does not bear the name Reflet, Boucheron's flagship line of watches, one might wonder why not, given the range of golden reflections offered by the dial and case on the wrist. The strap, which needs to be custom-fitted, is secured with a thin gold rod and completes the rare refinement of this small watch, turning it into a piece of jewelry.

The Greek symbol Omega next to the Boucheron Paris signature on the caseback reminds the more knowledgeable that Omega movements often crossed the Swiss border to power the creations of Parisian jewelers.

How to wear it?

The clasp on this watch requires a custom-made strap. This is a constraint that Françoise can help you overcome by creating a bracelet specifically tailored to you, adding the ultimate touch of refinement to this watch. What better way to make a watch truly yours than by adding a strap that is custom-made to to your wrist ?

Why did Françoise choose it?

Do Boucheron watches limits to Reflet? Françoise likes to look beyond the obvious, convinced that history unfairly forgets exceptional pieces overshadowed by icons. This watch is a perfect example!

The double signature adds a forgotten poetry and recalls a time when luxury brands were primarily artisans who worked hand in hand to create beautiful pieces, rather than enemies fighting for a larger market share.

History

Boucheron is one of the brands that Françoise believes is unfairly forgotten. As the first jewelry house to establish itself on Place Vendôme, Boucheron was a pioneer in many horological and jewelry topics. Frédéric Boucheron, the founder of the brand, was one of the first to promote the wristwatch, as early as the mid-19th century.

Eclipsed by its big sister, the Reflet, the Carrée is not a watch to be forgotten! It adopts the custom-made attachment system that made the success of the Reflet and takes its freedom with the clous de Paris on the case and dial, as well as its perfectly square shape.
