In 2020, the classic Blancpain Villeret collection receives two new versions of Quantième Complet and Ultraplate, both with blue dial and red gold case.

The new Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet (full calendar) and Ultraplate (extra-flat) combine, for the first time, an evening blue dial with a 40 mm red gold case. The blue face of this Villeret duo is embellished by applied Roman numerals and hands, both in red gold. The hour and minute hands are shaped like cut out sage leaves, while the seconds hand bears the initials of the Maison’s founder, Jehan-Jacques Blancpain.

The elegance of the new Villeret Quantième Complet and Villeret Ultraplate extends to the back of the case. Visible through the sapphire glass bottom, the movements feature carefully executed decorations, such as Côtes de Genève motif, which adorns the bridges, and the honeycomb pattern, which can be admired in the oscillating weight in red gold.

The final touch is given by an evening blue crocodile leather strap, matching the tone of the dial.

Villeret Quantième Complet

Villeret Quantième Complet combines a complete calendar with a moonphase indication. In the dial of this model, discreet openings indicate the day of the week and the month at 12 o’clock, a calendar with a serpentine hand and a moonphase display, positioned at 6 o’clock.

This watch is powered by the 6654 automatic winding movement, equipped with a security system, which protects it against any improper use of functions. In this way, the watch owner can adjust the complete calendar at any time, without causing any risk to movement, unlike conventional calendars.

The Villeret Quantième Complet model is also equipped with patented correctors, allowing all information to be adjusted with the press of a finger, thus eliminating the need for a tool.

Villeret Ultraplate

Villeret Ultraplate presents refined and contemporary expressions of the collection’s aesthetic codes. The hour and minute display is complemented by a large central second hand and a date window at 3 o’clock, sized to ensure optimum visual balance and legibility.

This model is driven by the 1151 automatic winding movement, which guarantees a power reserve of four days, thanks to two barrels connected in series and high performance springs.
