Blancpain promises to give time a new meaning this Valentine’s Day with the new Saint-Valentin 2020, inspired to a rectangular gem-set Ladybird watch once owned by Marilyn Monroe.
Issued in a 14-piece limited edition, this graceful model designed for Valentine’s Day 2020 is also an expression of exceptional watchmaking expertise. The rectangular white gold Art Deco style case is set with 84 diamond including two generous marquise-cut gems; while its mother-of-pearl dial, inlaid with two hearts, is adorned with two brilliant-cut diamonds and two precious butterflies made of diamond and ruby hearts.

The curves of the latter, along with the symmetry between its balance-wheel and its barrel lend both delicacy and visual equilibrium to this two-tone mechanical movement, while the chamfered finish of its bridges adds a soft and light touch.
