Review: Boucheron – Epure Tourbillon Ama FishWritten by Alvin Wong
Boucheron may not boast the horological cachet of traditional watchmaking houses, but the legendary Parisian jeweller sure knows how to raise its profile where it matters.
Having collaborated with highly regarded independent brands like MB&F and Richard Mille, Boucheron launched its first high complication watch, the Epure, a tourbillon for men, with Girard-Perregaux-based movement. This year’s creation showcases a flying tourbillon from boutique movement maker MHC. Leveraging on its mastery of jewellery crafts, the watch features a sculpted, bejwelled fish motif in white gold against a blue mother-of-pearl dial atop the tourbillon.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
