Perfectly adapted to the constraints of
modern life, this useful complication indicates
the week of the year.
The calendar week display helps you plan your week’s activities by displaying the number of the calendar week on the watch dial. This information, much in demand these days, is indicated by a central hand pointing to one of the numbers inscribed on the outer circumference of the dial. The week changes at midnight between Sunday and Monday, in parallel with the date change.
The numbering, from 1 to 53, is a reminder that some years include a 53rd week according to official schedule planners: this will be so in 2015, 2020 and 2026, to name only the cases arising soonest.
Designed with a view to making life easier for the wearer, Blancpain calendar week watches also have a large date and displays showing day of the week and power reserve. Furthermore, correction of the week indication is independent of the other corrections and is performed by means of a corrector incorporated into the case.
While remaining faithful to a prestigious watchmaking tradition, this innovative complication meets a contemporary need.
