Blancpain celebrates lovers with a limited edition of its Villeret Women Quantième Phases de Lune model
The Maison has dreamed up a refined exterior for its calendar with moon phases, one of the most romantic complications gracing feminine models in its Villeret collection. The special “Valentine’s Day 2019” timepiece appears with a natural white mother-of-pearl dial, of which the iridescent sheen and cotton-candy shades evoke a heavenly backdrop. Eight brilliant-cut diamonds serving as hour-markers are carefully set and secured to the mother-of-pearl, whose extreme fragility leaves no room for mistakes. Swept over by slender matching cut-out sage leaf-type hands, the chapter ring is complemented by applied red gold numerals marking 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The seconds are pointed to by a central hand shaped like a Cupid’s arrow, while a fourth hand tipped with a red-lacquered heart indicates the date. The moon phase appears at 6 o’clock, through an aperture with rounded edges and a golden rim.
Limitato a 99 esemplari numerati e incisi, questo segnatempo si accompagna di due cinturini intercambiabili in alligatore. Le felici proprietarie potranno così passare da un cinturino color rosso fiamma a uno color bianco puro con la semplice pressione sulle barrette a molla situate sotto al cinturino.
