Marcel Boucher Designer Jump Hours from 1973

Marcel Boucher (1898–1965) was a French jeweller. In the early 1920s, he moved to New York City where he developed a passion for jewellery design, studying under Pierre Cartier as an apprentice.By the 1930s, he was working for Mazer Brothers. However, in 1937 he decided to establish his own company, which he called Marcel Boucher and Cie. In 1965, Boucher died, and his wife Sandra (who had worked for Harry Winston) took over her husband’s company. The company was made a subsidiary sometime between 1970-1972 of Davorn Industries.

The company made some distingishing jump hours in the early seventies.
