A subtle golden Reflet

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! Here the strap is indeed a gold bracelet, but of course you can order more leather straps to dress it down.

This watch could be the definition of full gold : gold dial, gold case and of course gold bracelet. This is merely a jewellery ! The quartz movement adds a lot of practicity. 

How to wear it?

The advantage of a Reflet is that the interchangeable strap options are virtually endless. Françoise strongly advise you to start your own collection of straps to dress your watch accordingly to your desires and outfits ! This gold bracelet is a perfect way to start. Any good leather craftsman can make new straps for you !

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. 

The almost sporty, yet undeniably modern design of the Reflet (sharp lines, imposing case) is counterbalanced by the gold bracelet that transforms this watch completely into a real jewel ! 

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!)
