Boucheron Epure Tourbillon ‘Ama Fish’ Limited Edition

This Epure creation from the House of Boucheron offers a fresh interpretation of the femininity, freedom and delicacy associated with fish. The fish swims above the carriage of an impressive ‘flying tourbillon’, the heart of the timepiece. Waves of blue mother-of-pearl give the dial light and movement. The three-dimensional fish swims above the mother-of-pearl sea. Its head is set with diamonds and its tail has an openwork design, so that it appears to sway above the blue waves. The fish’s tail fins also set with pavé baguettes diamonds that have been worked at different heights to enhance the contours.
The back creates the impression of rays of light, like those that illuminate 26 Place Vendôme, and is engraved on the back of the case. Frédéric Boucheron’s timeless motto, «I count only joyful hours» adds the finishing touch to this stunning creation.
