The new Villeret Date watch for women is graced with a beautifully balanced dial of which its readability is accentuated by its size.High on style and substance, this horological timepiece is powered by the 1151 movement, which has a four-day power reserve and is equipped with a silicon balance-spring particularly renowned for its chronometric (precision timing) properties. Visible through the sapphire case-back, the movement is adorned in keeping with the aesthetic codes of traditional watchmaking, as evidenced by its oscillating weight decorated with a guilloché pattern reflecting a honeycomb motif first created almost two centuries ago.
The 33.2 mm-diameter case, available in steel or red gold, is set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds. As is customary in the Villeret collection, the steel version has a white dial and the red gold version has an opaline dial, both set with brilliant-cut diamonds. To ensure its customers are spoilt for choice, Blancpain launched four models and offers a non-set version of each of these models. The four watches thus unveiled are fitted with either an alligator strap or a mille mailles bracelet. These models can also be purchased with a kit of five interchangeable wristbands to suit every mood.
