The Watch: Ladies’ Complete Calendar Moonphase timepiece, by Blancpain.
Blancpain is the brand for anyone seeking a timepiece that is as luxurious in looks as it is packed with technical prowess. Founded in the Swiss village of Villeret in 1735, the watch manufacture is famed for producing lust-worthy watches for the connoisseur. Fewer than 10,000 timepieces are made every year, with each being undertaken by a single watchmaker - resulting in creations that drip with sophistication and finesse. Take this charming ladies’ model, for example. Its clean, understated looks belie the number of complications found beneath its elegant face. As they say, "the true beauty of a lady rests within her innermost being".
1 - Lined with Beauty
The delicate guilloche-worked mother-of-pearl dial bears a clean, legible format despite the watch’s numerous functions.
2 - Desired Date
The day and month apertures are accompanied by a ring of dates (indicated through a red-tipped hand) on the dial.
3 - Double duty
The small seconds hand is integrated with the moonphase indicator to keep the dial uncluttered.
This automatic timepiece is water-resistant to 30m and bears an impressive 100-hour power reserve.
