Blancpain Unveils L-evolution Tourbillon GMT Watch

May 20, 2009
Famous for its great expertise in the field of horological complications, Blancpain has created a timepiece that has smartly united a tourbillon and a GMT function. The new Tourbillon GMT watch has joined the brand-new L-evolution Collection.

Reflecting the brand’s rich horological heritage, the Blancpain L-evolution Tourbillon GMT watch makes one feel its contemporary spirit.

The sporty-looking case of the timepiece is sculptured in 18K white or red gold.

The finely polished case measures 43.5mm in diameter. The case boasts an innovative design, with rapidly detachable lugs that allow to easily change a strap or a bracelet.

The timepiece
is 100-meter water-resistant. It is secured to the wrist on an alligator leather strap fitted with a triple-blade folding clasp.

The zest of the new Blancpain watch is its multi-level dial. The dial base-plate in the center is embellished with the Cotes de Geneve pattern. The glance is caught by fascinating ballet of the flying tourbillon visible through a broad aperture at 12 o’clock. The tourbillon demonstrates meticulous attention to finishing perfection. There are oversized luminous Arabic numerals at 3 and 6 o’clock.

The date function is presented at 9 o’clock with help of a double hand and two semi-circular scales with two staggered number sets. The second timezone is indicated by a third red-tipped hand at the center of the dial and a 24-hour scale featured at the rim of the dial.

The L-evolution Tourbillon GMT watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, accommodates the brand’s new self-winding Calibre 5025 providing an 8-day power reserve. Calibre 5025 boasts the high-end finishing, with bevelled bridges and polished details.

The Blancpain watch will be available in a limited edition of 99 pieces for each version.
