A diamond's reflection

Description

The design of the Reflet (french from reflection)  is one of the rare designs that we recognize at first glance : a rectangular case with vertical lines that accentuate the elongate feeling. The other major feature that made the Reflet a watchmaking revolution is the strap system. The very principle of the clasp is rethought by Boucheron : the case becomes the strap fermoir. Thanks to this ingenious system you can change the strap according to your desires!

This model stands apart from classical Reflets by the setting of horizontal diamonds along the case. This elegant setting underlines the verticality of the Reflet. 4 diamonds at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock on the dial answers to the diamonds on the case.

Finally this bracelet is rarely seen on the Reflets and transforms an old design into a modern and practical watch. Light will play on its small embedded links and help you remind that Boucheron was a jeweller long before it was a watchmaker. 

How to wear it?

The advantage of a Reflet is that changing the strap makes the possibilities literally endless. Keep that steel bracelet, and you have a modern, everyday watch. Treat yourself to a colorful leather strap, and you'll be wearing a fun watch this summer. Chose a black satin ribbon, and you will have a simple and elegant way to emphasize the diamonds of the case with a dressier outfit.

Why did Françoise choose it ?

La Reflet is unjustly forgotten when it comes to women's horology. Its strap attachment system is revolutionary because it allows you to match your strap to your outfit. For that alone, Françoise is particularly fond of the Reflet and would like to offer it more often. Besides, its long design sits particularly well on the wrist.

Françoise loves that Boucheron broke the codes mixing this sporty-looking bracelet watch with a very elegant and discreet diamond setting.

History

Boucheron is one of the brands that Françoise finds unjustly overlooked. After being the first jewelry house to set up shop in Place Vendôme, Boucheron was a forerunner on a large number of watchmaking and jewelry subjects. The brand's founder Frédéric Boucheron was among the first to promote the wristwatch, as early as the middle of the 19th century.

La Reflet, born in 1947 in the hands of the heirs of the founder, was Boucheron's first "mass" watchmaking success. Its system to switch straps in an heartbeat was a revolution for women as they can finally adapt their watch exactly to their outfit. Watches become a fashion accessory. Edith Piaf is perhaps the most famous ambassador of Boucheron watches : she considered her Reflet as her lucky charm (she was thought to have bought more than twenty!)
