Villeret Classic Series Product ID: 6637-3631-55B
Blancpain continues to enrich the Villeret classic series, while bringing subtle timepieces, giving it a timeless elegance. The new watch is dedicated to this brand’s tradition, with purely lined design, a large open flame enamel dial and a double bezel signature Blancpain signature aesthetic elements. In addition, in order to maintain a harmonious and unified aesthetic style, the dial on the dial and the Blancpain logo are drawn using enamel technology. This decoration process requires continuous firing at a high temperature of 800 degrees or more to complete.
The new Villeret classic series watch has a large two-window calendar window, the week number is evenly arranged along the outer circle of the dial, and is indicated by the classic blue steel snake hands of the Villeret series. At the same time, the week display is placed at nine o’clock in the form of a small dial. This design not only gives people a visually balanced beauty, but also enhances the readability of the watch. When the week displays Monday instead of Sunday, the blue-steel snake-shaped pointer jumps to complete the progression of the week number. The week number display circle has numbers from 1 to 53 and displays the 53 weeks of the year to the wearer globally. The watch is equipped with a 42-mm diameter red gold case, and underneath the lugs is Blancpain’s patented hidden adjustment device. When the watch is worn on the wrist, these adjustment devices are completely concealed, which greatly improves the simplicity of the case lines and maximizes the aesthetic charm of the watch. In addition, the wearer does not need a stylus, just touch the button under the lug with his fingertip to complete the adjustment. The week adjustment button is located at eleven o’clock, corresponding to it, and a week number adjustment button is provided at one point. With the crown, the wearer can quickly complete the date adjustment.
The new watch is equipped with Blancpain 3738G2 automatic movement. This movement consists of a total of 378 parts, is equipped with 3 main barrels, and has a power reserve of up to 8 days. The movement is also equipped with a titanium inertia balance wheel, and is equipped with a gold fine-tuned screw and a diamagnetic silicon balance spring. Silicon material is a major innovative material introduced in the watchmaking industry in recent years, with several key advantages. Silicon has low density and light weight, so it has strong shock resistance and is not affected by magnetic fields. These characteristics give the silicon hairspring an almost perfect geometry, thereby improving the isochronism of the movement and the accuracy of the watch.
Through the sapphire crystal on the back of the watch, the exquisite hand-polished and honeycomb guilloche-decorated two-tone winding oscillating weight on the movement offers a panoramic view. This watch inherits Blancpain’s ‘Innovation is Tradition’ brand gene. It perfectly blends modern skills with expression and is equipped with a hand-stitched chocolate alligator strap.
