Boucheron Introduces its Bestiaire Ronde Seconde Folle Line

Aug 07, 2009

The recent exceptional Bestiaire watch line of the famous watch-maker Boucheron exposes fascinating series of high-jewelry animals, brought to life through jewels, set in a creative and alluring way, and an original mechanical movement.

An alliance between the jewelers’ unrivalled art and the creative power fine watchmaking is characterized by, the Bestiaire Ronde Seconde Folle line unveils three charming products, encouraged by the most famous and adorable “beasts”.

Every model from Boucheron Bestiaire Ronde Seconde Folle collection exposes a 42 mm case, rendered in 18-karat white gold. Both jewelers and goldsmiths of Boucheron used this precious metal as a canvas to create the unique “pictures”, with their whimsy sides accentuated.

The precious gems, such as diamonds, sapphires of several colors, tsavorites as well as rubies are brought together to give birth to appealing images of a hungry chameleon, a happily dazed frog and a sleepy owl.

Every watch movement comprises a specialized module with a rotating disc, which substitutes the conventional small seconds hand, animating the Boucheron animals.

The chameleon, for example, “fixes” its gaze on a fly, which revolves right below the white gold branch. The same mechanism creates the turning left eye in both the frog and the owl models and eventually lends a very refreshing touch to the watches in question.

Crafted in 18K gold, the dials feature diverse, yet extremely attractive chalcedony, aventurine or rich lacquer coatings.

The watches from Boucheron Bestiaire Ronde Seconde Folle line accommodate the mechanical movement, executed entirely by the renowned Swiss watch-making house Girard-Perregaux. The same movement animates Boucheron's Reflet XL Automatic model, boasting a 40-hour power reserve.

The Calibre GP 4000 captivating details, embracing a complex skeletonized winding mass and bridges, featuring Cotes de Geneve decoration, as well as a special stripped motif, are visible through the Boucheron's signature elliptical sapphire display in the case-back.

To complete the feminine image, all models come with karung leather, galuchat, or finely grained satin exotic straps, fitted with a white gold pronged buckle.
