Boucheron Launch Orient-Inspired Watch Range

By P. Joseph

French jewellery house Boucheron have launched a colourful new range of watches inspired by the Far East.

The L’Orientale edition is part of the brand’s new Audacious Collection of timepieces that was showcased at the recent BaselWorld watch and jewellery fair in Switzerland.

The watches boast a mother-of-pearl dial, carved, painted and inlayed with an arabesque of diamonds, and surrounded by a triple ring of diamonds on the bezel.

Delivered in an Orientale case textured with clou de Paris metalwork on its sides, the bezel's diamonds are decorated in a 'staircase' formation, with each of the three rings of stones growing in size as they approach the dial.

The GP4000 movement is fitted with a Boucheron rotor and can be viewed through an elliptical display back.

The House of Boucheron is a French family dynasty founded by Frederic Boucheron in 1858.
