Art Deco Time by Boucheron
In the late 1920s the House of Boucheron began exploring designs for clocks that were both visually striking and innovative in movement. Working with Verger Frères on the watchcase and Vacheron & Constantin on the movement, Boucheron created this bold design which epitomizes the geometric strength of the Art Deco era. Combining crisp clean lines with striking color combinations, this clock embodies the wide array of infuences during the 1930s both by calling to mind the design of a Japanese Shinto and by having hands which are reminiscent of a Cubist painting.
