Blancpain Introduces Villeret Moon Phase Watch

Feb 25, 2010
On the occasion of its 275th birthday, the watch company Blancpain has launched its novel Villeret collection. It will experience its world premiere at Baselworld 2010. The first watch from this line to be introduced is a new complete calendar moon-phase model, equipped with a secure calendar mechanism and under-lug correctors.

This new assemblage from Blancpain represents a happy marriage of visual appeal and complication, reflecting the very essence of the brand. Noble, refined and elegant as ever, the models from the brands new series have been reinterpreted in a contemporary composition, using the benefits of the most modern technologies: Blaincpain devoted several years of intensive efforts to movement development.

The Villeret collection has always been distinguished by its complete calendar moon-phase complication. The Villeret Moon Phase watch from the line relies on a unique manufactory-made self-winding calibre, equipped with a balance wheel, beating at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. It is also endowed with an antimagnetic index assembly, as well as two barrels, which provide a 72-hour power reserve. No matter what time of the day it is, the watch wearer can adjust the watch indications with help of an innovative method, which prevents the movement from damaging.

To make adjusting of the indications easier, Blancpain has fitted this novelty with its patented under-lug correctors, incorporated into a 40 mm red gold half-hunter case. This technology enables the watch wearer to make the necessary changes with a simple touch of his finger. The Blaincpain watch finish, meanwhile, remains amazingly pure.

The Blaincpain Villeret Moon Phase watch boasts an extremely attractive opaline dial, which exerts irresistible attraction on true watch enthusiasts.
