The new Blancpain watch has adopted an enthralling round-shaped case, rendered in stainless steel. It features the dimensions of 34 mm x 11.05 mm: diameter and height indicated respectively.
The model is skillfully equipped with graceful lugs and a refined time-setting crown, featured at 3 o’clock. The case is built to be water-resistant up to 50 meters.
The case incorporates a charming bezel, also crafted from stainless steel. It sparkles with gorgeous diamonds, joined by a heart-shaped ruby. A special eye catcher of the watch, this jewel is set above the Roman numeral at 12 o’clock.
The ruby coordinates perfectly with a heart-tipped centralized date hand. It travels over Arabic numerals, neatly arrayed around the date ring. Indicating hours and minutes are arrow-shaped central hands, crafted from steel. Applied with a luminous compound, they make the white mother-of-pearl dial visible in the low-light situations.
Between the bezel and the date ring the display of the new Saint-Valentin 2011 Complete Calendar lady’s watch exposes three applied Roman numerals and 9 scintillating diamonds, which substitute for hour-markers.
The timepiece presented comes equipped with a moon-phase complication, revealed at 6 o’clock. Allied with a hand, which marks the passage of small seconds, this complication requires manual correction every 32 months.
The watch face is visually balanced by two separate exhibition windows, which are responsible for showing a month and a day of the week. The brand’s logo comfortably resides beneath these two rectangular apertures. The dial is shielded by a high-grade sapphire crystal.
The timekeeping companion in question accommodates a Swiss-made self-winding Calibre 6763 movement, manufactured by Frederic Piguet. It is endowed with a calendar complication, which needs to be manually corrected five times a year to make up for months that have less than 31 days.
Composed of 261 individual parts, it has 27.00 mm in diameter and stands 4.90 mm in height. The caliber is artfully embellished with 30 jewels. The movement houses a winding rotor, breathtakingly engraved with stylized hearts. The power reserve, provided by the mechanism, constitutes 100 hours. Its fascinating details can be observed through a sapphire crystal case-back.
Keeping the new Blancpain watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a white alligator leather strap, closed with a deployant clasp. The issue of the model is strictly limited to 99 pieces.
