Womens watches from Boucheron

Animals come to life as we take a look at some of the most recent women's jewellery watches from Boucheron.


Boucheron's new women's jewellery watches are inspired by the chameleon, the swan and elephant. Throughout its 154 years of history, Boucheron has always known how to have fun. More often than not, that joy has been inspired by the bestiary of creatures that Boucheron call their own as Boucheron and 'les animaux' go hand in hand. From the slithering serpent necklaces to the delicate 'cypris' or swan rings, Boucheron explores animals like no other jeweller. This selection of some of their most recent women's watches shows how animal inspiration can yield a variety of results.

Perhaps the most immediately 'Boucheron' of these high jewellery watches is the delightful 'Ajouree Chameleon'. Cheeky, colourful, and wonderfully crafted the little reptile is curled around the watch dial and shares the magic we see in the Chameleon rings and brooches. Here the white satin strap gives way to white gold paved with 100 diamonds, 100 multi-coloured sapphires, rubies and 100 tsavorites. With over ten different colours of stone this is easily the most vibrant choice here. The chameleon is a favourite symbol of Boucheron bestiary and a representation of metamorphosis. The chameleon is said to have almost talismanic qualities for the wearer.

The Crazy Jungle Hathi elephant watch is an age-old representation of power, strength, and resilience. A diamond mosaic on mother of pearl  brings the pachyderm to sparkling life with 300 gems. He almost seems to leap out of the watch face as his tusks and trunk run off around the bezel. The watch face contains a small disk called the "Crazy Second" that revolves to produce an array of changing colours, seen through drop-shaped openings.

Spreading its wings in competition and making a play for our attention is the Cyrpis Tourbillon with the famous Girard Perregaux three gold bridges. The craftsmanship of the jeweller able to create a three dimensional, fully set swan is on a par with the horological mastery that the Three Bridge Tourbillon represents making this a marriage of haute joaillerie and haute horlogerie. Whereas the Chameleon and the Crazy Hathi see the animals confined to the watch, here a swan has been boldly designed to be every part of the watch but the dial itself. What you see here is the White Plumage edition, though it is also available with black plumage, mirroring Boucheron's own black or white Cypris rings. This really is a big dose of extravagance for just one wrist as the White Plumage edition alone seeing one hundred blue sapphires set amongst 700 round cut diamonds.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
