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.
