This year, Blancpain’s most classic and elegant collection pairs the purity of its lines with the infinity of blue. Named after the village where Blancpain was founded in 1735 the Villeret collection.
The latest addition to the line is the Villeret Quantième Complet, a complete calendar model in red gold that is paired to a midnight blue dial. The dial features discreet apertures indicating the day of the week and month at 12 o’clock, a calendar with a serpentine hand and Blancpain’s hallmark “mischievous” moon-phase display at 6 o’clock. The applied hour-markers with Roman numerals are crafted in red gold, just like the four hands.
Driving this functionality is Blancpain’s self-winding Caliber 6654.P, composed of 321 total components, including 28 jewels and a decorative solid gold rotor, and storing a 72-hour power reserve.
The Quantieme Complet shows off this manufacture movement behind a sapphire exhibition movement features carefully executed decorations, such as the Côtes de Genève motif adorning the bridge and the honeycomb pattern that can be admired on the red gold oscillating weight.
The Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet is available on both blue alligator or rose-gold Milanese bracelet with prices of Swiss Francs 24,000 and Swiss Francs 42,000, respectively. blancpain.com. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
