Blancpain Pre-Baselworld 2012

A retrograde small seconds for the Villeret collection

Blancpain will be unveiling a new model to the Villeret collection at the Baselworld 2012, a retrograde small seconds featuring, for the first time in this collection, a flinque lacquered dial. 

Blancpain adopts a subtly balanced approach by introducing this original touch while preserving the pure lines of its most classic collection. The Villeret collection welcomes its first model featuring a flinqué lacquered dial. Several layers of translucent blue lacquer applied to the dial create an incomparable depth effect. 

Housed within its 40 mm-diameter white gold case, the ultra-slim Calibre 7663Q with its 244 parts and 34 jewels has a three-day power reserve. This new self-winding movement powers hour and minute hands as well as an equally central serpentine date pointer, while the retrograde seconds appear at 6 o’clock.

Audemars Piguet new Royal Oak for Ladies

The Royal Oak Quartz 33 mm watch

Representing a return to roots, meaning to the pure aesthetic of the collection, Audemars Piguet is launching a dainty 33mm-diameter-model to be added to its classic Royal Oak collection. 

The subtle interplay of alternating satin-brushed and polished surfaces characterising the first Royal Oak watches accentuate the clear-cut lines of this 33 mm model; while the eight hexagonal screws on the octagonal bezel are in white gold, just as they were on the original watch in 1972.

The silver-toned dial of this Royal Oak bears a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern that now becomes a signature for all Royal Oak Selfwinding and Quartz models. This motif is crafted by Audemars Piguet using historical machines according to the ramolayé or pounced ornament technique.

Technical details

Reference: 67651ST.ZZ.1261ST.01

Movement: Quartz Calibre 2713, 7 jewels

Functions: Hours, minutes, date

Case: Stainless steel case with Diamond-set bezel

Diameter: 33mm

Vacheron Constantin redesigns the Malte Collection

Four new Malte models launch

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the creation of the first Malte models, Vacheron Constantin has presented at the SIHH 2012 four new models to the collection with an updated shaped redesign. 

Vacheron Constantin launched the first tonneau or barrel-shaped cases in 1912. From the earliest days, the shape became associated with high style, and with the finest horological complications. In modern times, the Malte collection made its debut in 2000. At SIHH 2012, Vacheron Constantin introduced four newly redesigned Malte models, three of which are powered by movements that have earned the new Geneva Hallmark. 

The new four designs are the Malte Tourbillon, the largest piece in the collections; the Malte Small Seconds, presented in a slightly smaller case as the Tourbillon; the Malte 100th Anniversary Edition, a limited editions piece with “exploding” Roman numerals; and the Malte Small Model, a fine timepiece in 18K pink gold with a diamond-set bezel. 

The Malte 100th Anniversary Edition is scheduled to be launched in September; the Malte Tourbillon and the Malte Small Seconds are scheduled to be launched in November; and the launched date for the Malte Small Model is yet to be determined.
