The Blancpain Boutiques welcome an exclusive edition of the Traditional Chinese Calendar
With the 2022 Lunar New Year approaching, Blancpain offers a reinterpretation of its Traditional Chinese Calendar by unveiling a new red gold version with a blue grand feu enamel dial. Faithful to the aesthetic signature elements of the Villeret collection, the 45 mm double-stepped case is equipped with under-lug correctors enabling easy function adjustments. It frames a display revealing Blancpain's artisanal savoir faire. Whilst the chapter ring is composed of gold appliques, the other indications are in enamel. The main hands shaped like slightly hollowed leaves are associated with a serpentine hand sweeping over the Gregorian date numerals.
Available exclusively at the Brand's Boutiques, the Traditional Chinese Calendar model is driven by the self-winding 3638 movement, whose complexity stems as much from the number of the indications to be displayed, as from the irregular nature of their cycles. Crafted in red gold, the oscillating weight features a honeycomb pattern and is engraved with the yin and yang symbols typical of the Chinese calendar.
