Boucheron Crazy Jungle Hathi Watch - Inspired by India

May 23, 2011
The timepiece maker Boucheron is happy to propose two new Crazy Jungle Hathi watches. They successfully combine the emotion of spectacular High Jewellery with the meticulous precision of the refined watchmaking.

The inspiration behind this new Boucheron watch is a rich heritage of India. Its dial depicts a ceremonial elephant, used by royalty. The animal is paved with white diamonds.

The image of elephant is covered by a precious blanket, which comprises blues sapphires and green tsavorites or yellow and orange sapphires.

Presented against a 3D starry sky, the elephant stretches its trunk and toes out to the bezel. The latter is breathtakingly inset with white diamonds and blue sapphires. More than 300 gems encrusted into the dial, lend it a special visual grace and a staggering impression of richness.

The display of each new Boucheron Crazy Jungle Hathi watch ensures hours and minutes. Equipped with delicate tear drop-shaped apertures, the “Crazy Seconds” module is featured in the centre of the marvelous blanket.

Animating the functions is a self-winding mechanical GP 4000 movement. It incorporates a customized rotor, performed in the form of the Boucheron’s historic poincon.

The mechanism finds its natural home in a 42 mm case, crafted from white or yellow gold. An elliptical display window on its back part allows the user to admire the intricate working of the movement. The side of the model is adorned with the brand’s signature “Pointes de Diamant” motif. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 50 meters.

The new Boucheron watch is coupled with a satin strap, which makes a fine match with the dial’s background.
