Blancpain - New Villeret Extraplate Boutique edition

Blancpain New Villeret Extraplate Boutique edition

Blancpain presents a new Boutique Edition of its Villeret Extraplate watch.

Blancpain’s native village of Villeret lends its name to the most classic collection from the Brand. Anchored in tradition, these models personify the roots of the Manufacture and embody its primary aesthetic choices. The purity of their lines and the slenderness of their double-stepped cases express the essence of horology with timeless elegance.

The Villeret Extraplate Boutique Edition reveals these codes in a new light. Blancpain's traditional cut-out sage leaf-shaped hands sweep over a dial that is green for the very first time. This shimmering new colour with its sunburst finish is paired with a 40 mm-diameter yellow gold case housing Blancpain's 1151 calibre. While the latter appears simple at first glance, the complex construction of this mechanism stems from a balancing act that involves achieving the most pleasing slenderness while guaranteeing accuracy and reliability.

The experience and expertise cultivated by Blancpain, which designs and produces all its calibres in-house, enables it to offer a high-performance movement measuring a mere 3.25 mm thick. The Manufacture has of course made no compromises when it comes to user-friendliness: the hours and minutes indications are complemented by a large central seconds hand and a date window, while the self-winding calibre boasts a four-day power reserve. And all this within an 8.7 mm-thick case.

The new Villeret Extraplate Boutique Edition is a dainty watch. The front expresses the refinement of this timepiece through the dial finish as well as the hand-applied hour-markers; while its elegance shines through the back on bridges adorned with a Côtes de Genève pattern as well as an oscillating weight featuring a honeycomb motif. This exclusive model, available only in Blancpain Boutiques worldwide, is teamed with a brown nubuck alligator leather strap.
