Just in Time – Blancpain’s Villeret Valentine’s Day 2018 Model
Valentine’s Day 2018 is already set to be special—courtesy of Swiss watchmaker, Blancpain. The heritage brand is once again paying homage to women with a spectacular timepiece dedicated especially to them.
Crafted with a dual focus on beauty and cutting-edge innovation, each and every detail is meticulously attended to. The mother-of-pearl sky background is scattered 19 brilliant-cut, starry diamonds and four rubies, the strap is crafted from sleek crimson alligator and the Cupid’s arrow second hand all nod to the day loyal to love. The striking sapphire moon face features are distinctly feminine, recalling the cheeky days when coquettish ladies of the court used tiny hand-drawn moles (known as mouches) to send signals to their lovers. The steel case measures 29.20 mm; its bezel is adorned with 48 diamonds and the lugs with 20, while the crown is set with an imposing rose-cut diamond.
The moon phase is a horological complication that was rarely favoured until Blancpain reintroduced it in the early 1980s. Since then, it has become a trademark of the Manufacture and for the first time placed at a sloping angle at 6 o’clock on this exquisite piece. This alluring watch beats by the self-winding 913 L movement and is equipped with a glucydur balance wheel fitted with gold micrometric regulating screws and a balance spring in silicon—rendering the piece lighter and more shock-resistant, as well as impervious to magnetic fields. An altogether beautifully made, technologically advanced piece with extreme timekeeping precision. Doesn’t the one you love deserve it?
