Boucheron Epure Tourbillon Lierre de Lumière

Boucheron’s Epure Tourbillon Lierre de Lumière is an extra ordinary timepiece that takes on nature and Paris, both of which are traditional sources of inspiration for the Maison based in the city of Romance.

Frédéric Boucheron was the first jeweler to open up a boutique in Place Vendôme and chose number 26 for the light that illuminated the building, making his stones sparkle. The iconic cobblestones in the square are symbols of the capital, embodying Parisian elegance and style.
This new Boucheron creation plays on the contrast between the cut stones and the wild ivy that flourishes between them. In keeping with Maison Boucheron’s traditional sources of inspiration, here nature further enhances the beauty of the city. With its 3 ivy leaves, decorated with openwork veins and diamonds that flourish within a mosaic of rough diamonds, Lierre de Lumière is a feat of technical prowess. The play on contrasts gives the creation an extraordinary brilliance, where time, enhanced by a flying tourbillon, comes to a halt.

The Boucheron Epure Tourbillon Lierre de Lumière is offered in two stunning versions. First one (white gold case - bezel set with round diamonds - dial set with rough, brilliant and baguette diamonds) is available in a limited edition of 8 pieces. The second version (white gold case - bezel set with baguette diamonds - dial set with rough, brilliant and baguette diamonds) is a unique piece.
