Blancpain : Aesthetic and technical sophistication

The tradition of innovation… One could hardly imagine a more apt way of describing the expertise deployed in developing the latest model to join the Villeret collection. Beneath a classic exterior featuring an elegant white grand feu enamel white dial framed by a pleasing 42 mm pink gold case, beats self-winding Calibre 5939A : an ultra-sophisticated new movement driving perpetual calendar, large moon phase, small seconds and 8-day power reserve functions. While the very perpetual calendar means no adjustments will be needed until the year 2100, despite the complexity of the Gregorian calendar, four patented invisible correctors are nonetheless concealed under the lugs, providing a discreet and practical way of hand-adjusting the dates and moon phases without any need for dedicated tools. A technical innovation serving the pure, uncluttered aesthetic favored by Blancpain.
