As part of Boucheron’s collection of animal-inspired dials, the Epure Cypris women’s watch captures the intense beauty and majestic drama of a black swan. Entirely sculpted from black Tahitian mother-of-pearl, its neck and chest are picked out in brilliant-cut diamonds. The jet-black plumage of the swan fans out against a fast-flowing river made from iridescent black mother-of-pearl contained by a gleaming bezel set with 47 diamonds. The 41mm white gold case belongs to Boucheron’s classic Epure family and features the hallmark double gadroons on the bezel and the blue sapphire cabochon in the crown. Another characteristic feature is the protective cover on the caseback that can be opened to reveal the superlative mechanical automatic movement. The watch is a limited edition of eight pieces.
