Following the MEC Jungle series launched in 2007 and the Tourbillon Bestiaire line in 2008, Boucheron presented its new watch collection entitled Ronde Bestiaire Seconde Folle (Crazy Second), which features three cartoon-like animal motifs – the frog, chameleon and the owl, set with diamonds and precious stones including pink, blue or yellow sapphires, rubies and tsavorites.
The collection takes its name from the humorous interpretation of the small seconds display. The seconds counter, situated at 7 o’clock, is a disc that makes a complete rotation in sixty seconds, forming the frog’s or the owl’s whirring eye. For the cameleon version, the seconds display is represented by a swirling fly.
The new watches house a new mechanical automatic movement developed with Girard-Perregaux, on the base of the watch manufacture’s existing GP 4000 calibre. The 42 mm cases are in white gold and there are six models available.
