About This Watch

Pre-owned. Comes with an impressive wooden box+outer box, manual, docs, & dated paper plus tax invoice.

This is a one owner's watch from new & purchased from Cortina in Singapore for a princely S$16560.00! A very expensive watch but one with impressive quality & attention to details. Watch is in mint condition throughout and the original strap shows little use.

The matt white dial resembles fine porcelain while white gold stick Roman numerals are applied on it. The WG hands are skeletonised to create a sense of refinement while a serpent styled blued steel hand serves to tell us the date.

Blancpain’s complete calendar watches use a disk system to display the day of the week and the month through two apertures. The date is indicated by a central hand. In the Villeret collection, this is a serpentine hand in blued steel harking back to the watchmaking tradition of the 19th century which used this characteristic shape to indicate the secondary information given by the watch.

Unlike the annual calendar or the perpetual calendar, the complete calendar does not take into account the variable lengths of the months and needs to be corrected five times a year, at the end of months shorter than 31 days.

The reproduction of the lunar cycles on the dials of Blancpain complete calendar watches evokes the time-honoured ties between watchmaking and astronomy. Moon phase timepieces indicate whether the moon is new, waxing, full or waning.

The face of the moon corresponding to the moon phase is visible through an opening in the dial. The moon phase indicator is made up of a wheel with 59 cogs, turning over two complete lunar cycles of 29.5 days. For this reason the moon is painted twice on the disk driven by this wheel. The moon phase mechanism is moved forward once a day around 6pm by a gear similar to that of the date indication.

A beautiful complications at a bargain price now and rare in the pre-owned market. The double deployant buckle springs to lock and open at an instant which is a delight to use and unlike anything else on the market. The 40mm diameter is a perfect size and just 11mm thin for an automatic watch with glass back. This watch is now over S$17K after discount with the retailers so you do save a good deal.
