STIMA VALUE INDEX – Blancpain Villeret Perpetual Calendar
Blancpain’s capacity to develop and produce its own movements gives it complete creative freedom. This expertise, combined with a long-established tradition of innovation, has given rise to the Villeret Perpetual Calendar. One of this calendar’s assets lies in its ability to indicate the varying month lengths and leap years – characterizing the Gregorian calendar – while requiring no adjustment until the year 2100. The date, day and month are displayed at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock respectively, while the moon is majestically enthroned at 6 o’clock. The movement is protected by a security system ensuring that these indications can be handled at any time without any risk of damage.
The 40 mm-diameter red gold case is equipped with Blancpain’s patented under-lug correctors. By remaining invisible when the watch is worn, these discreet and practical correctors preserve the smooth lines of the case with its double stepped bezel, while serving to adjust the date and moon-phase indications without any need for a dedicated tool. The broad sapphire case-back reveals the meticulous finishing of the movement with its honeycomb-motif gold oscillating weight.
