Blancpain Powerful L-evolution Automatique 8 Jours

Jun 08, 2009
The Blancpain L-evolution Collection has been joined by a new sporty timepiece the Automatique 8 Jours watch. The timepiece features a slightly bigger case than the one of the previous models and provides supreme reliability and outstanding performance as it is animated by the new Calibre 13R5.

The Blancpain L-evolution Automatique 8 Jours watch makes one feel its powerful aesthetic appeal created due to its generously-sized case, 43.5 mm in diameter, and its black dial completed with oversized 9 and 3 oclock numerals.

The dial of the new Blancpain watch is characterized by an extremely complex nature. It features a delicate cut-out design, with a big central opening that allows to see the base-plate decorated with an elegant Cotes-de-Geneve pattern. You will notice two more apertures - a date window at 6 oclock and the power-reserve display at 12 oclock, adding a unique structural depth effect to the dial. The two oversized Arabic numerals at 3 and 9 oclock are featured to strengthen the three-dimensional nature of the dial.

The sporty-styled case incorporates newly-designed detachable lugs, facilitating the insertion of a metal bracelet. The case of the timepiece
is sculptured from steel or red gold. It is coupled with a rubber-lined black or brown alligator leather strap fitted with a triple-blade folding clasp.

Calibre 13R5 incorporates a one-of-a-kind system of regulating screws for the titanium balance. The movement rate is managed with help of inertia-blocks positioned around the balance rim or "felly". The micrometrical gold screws have been fitted with square heads facilitating adjustment.

A quarter-turn of two diametrically opposite screws implies a gain or loss of 30 seconds per day. This greatly improves the precision level and the movement operation is not disrupted by jolting or jarring.

The remarkable movement beating inside the Blancpain watch is also fitted with three barrels and provides an 8-day power reserve. Its high-density gold rotor guarantees highly efficient winding, while a flat balance-spring guarantees perfect isochronism. One more peculiarity of the new technically-advanced movement is that it is possible to adjust the date at any time, and around midnight, in both directions.
