The Villeret Grande Décoration for Only Watch 2011 is an outstanding exercise in style distinguished by vivid contrasts. It is equipped with Calibre 15B, an ultra-thin hand-wound 117-part movement stemming from the pocket-watch in the same collection and indicating the hours and minutes. The cambered grand feu enamelled dial covering it bears only 12 painted enamel hour-markers and two hands in the same red gold as the 45 mm case housing it. The extremely pure design of its dial is counter-balanced by the incredibly refined decoration of its movement. Thanks to the slightly thicker bridges of Calibre 15B, Blancpain's masterengraver Marie-Laure Tarbouriech has given free rein to her talent in creating an original decor for an exceptional timepiece. Entirely hand-crafted by Marie-Laure who has recently received the prestigious Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France distinction, this exceptional engraving of a typical Monegasque scenery represents the Rock and its hinterland.
Blancpain is the archetypal Manufacture: with a watchmaking heritage dating back several centuries, it has successfully preserved its watchmaking tradition, whilst welcoming a spirit of innovation.Find out more >
