Brand/Model : Boucheron La Carree Automatique Limited Edition
18 karat solid gold light rose color looks almost yellow gold
Large Size : 33mm width 42mm lugs diameter and corner tip to tip 47mm ( so it is generous size and weight in gold that will always feel on the wrist). I want to add that case is sleek and sits on the wrist very comfortably and you won't have any problems wearing long sleeve shirts, dress style cuffs..
Band and Clasp : 18k folded deployant buckle, heavy that keeps balance with the case. Straps are original Boucheron still in excellent condition.
ENGINE : It is mechanical self-winding movement with quickset date. I have never opened the watch so I don't have any further info on this.
BOX/PAPERS : Even these are different. Color is royal purple suede like inside and lizard skin like leather out, cleaning cloth with brand logo in leather wallet. Books owner's manual and international guarantee booklet stamped and dated. Again paper too here they used is a very special quality
*** I am pleased to offer this ultra luxury and very exquisite timepiece that is almost impossible to find or see someone wearing it.
UNIQUENESS : Every part of this watch is unique in a good way not weirdly. Designed as an artwork second to none, and every part of it shows great attention to details and finest craftsmanship. Whole concept looks like it wants to tell the history of the brand, it is a modern timepiece shaped with 200yr old heritage and experience wrapped up in classy and elegant vintage
- Name Boucheron is a very old French jeweler like Cartier since 1850s. Well known in EU (jeweler for European royalty over a century).
- Case shaped as frame of an artwork with all sides and angles detailed in hobnail including caseback. Crown hides in the caseside, its stamped Vendome Paris Place 26 (Boucheron's permanent Address for over a century)
- Dial/Hands are presented in Art Deco, silver guilloche dial with large Roman numerals and thats about it. Configured in oval shape tilted to the right, date window also in oval placed at 1 o'clock.
Hands are amazing the very though to shaped them like in obelisk statue is unseen ever before on any other wristwatch.
- Clasp/Band, shaped and decorated buckle in high polish and matte finish, stamped and hallmarked. The band is chocolate color leather genuine crocodile, nothing special one may ask? How about this, it is crocodile on both sides. Outer leather uses large part of the skin while inner small pattern. Again very different from the rest.
In conclusion, among many fine brands like (Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Zenith 1965 JFK, Cartier, Jaeger Lecoultre, Girard Perregaux) all that have released historique models in this segment, I will give Boucheron 1st place period.
None have thought to create such a timepiece, as modern as it is and as vintage concept as it can be, with design to details to fit and finish and totally one of a kind. Worthy to be worn by the richest or find itself among the finest collectors
