The famed jewelry house Boucheron was founded in 1858 by the eponymous Frédéric Boucheron, master jeweler and gem expert. Boucheron was the first jewelry house to appear at the celebrated Place Vendôme, Paris, where the house still exists to this day. A master in using precious material, Boucheron has also dedicated itself in the creation of elegant timepieces, especially in white or yellow gold. A noble metal with a hardness of 5 on the Mohs’s scale, gold is non-oxidizing, which means that its shine resists the effects of time and perfect for the purpose of gibing life to stunning objects. The lot here offered is a very refined timepiece with a yellow-gold square case with multiply stepped bezel and cabochon sapphire-set winding crown. The lugs are straight and one of them, sliding it on the side, allows the strap to be taken out in a very unusual way. The champagne dial has vertical stripes and is preserved nicely. The conditions of the whole watch are remarkable, and that is testified by the clear and deep engravings on the back.
