Frédéric Boucheron founded the brand in 1858. From the beginning, the brand was dedicated to watchmaking, thereby earning him the nickname " Jeweller of the Time". In 1880, Boucheron was the first to introduce an entire collection of wristwatches. In 1896, Boucheron opened its new boutique at 26 Place Vendôme (home to the most notorious high end jewellers), formerly the mansion of the Countess of Castiglione, the famous mistress of Napoleon III. The best seller of Boucheron is the « godron » watch. Founded in 1848, this rectangular faced watch seduced several generations, and has become a timeless piece. It is available in three different sizes, in gold or steel with an interchangeable bracelet. Boucheron also creates watches inspired by its jewellery collections (rich in precious stones and colors) such as the hibou, caméléon or serpent watch.
