BLANCPAIN WOMEN “SAINT-VALENTIN 2009”
A chronograph in the name of love
At Blancpain, the annual lovers' day is a celebration. Each year, the Manufacture in Le
Brassus makes it a point of honour to conceive and create a limited series of ladies' timepieces
dedicated to love. Watchmaking tradition mingles with the boundless creativity of the brand's
designers, who are never at a loss for inspiration when it comes to sublimating the feminine
and romantic spirit of slender mechanical timepieces. The 2009 edition is a special treat for
women with a taste for sporty-looking watches. The Manufacture in Le Brassus offers a
modern horological interpretation of romance: an exclusive edition of 99 Flyback
Chronographs, a timeless gift beating to the rhythm of tender hearts.
Valentine's Day is a powerful symbol and an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Blancpain. In
its honour, the Manufacture in Le Brassus presents an exclusive edition of the Flyback
Chronograph, combining a daring design with the elegance of mother-of-pearl and rubies. In a tip of
the hat to the brand's pioneering approach to women's timepieces, the prestigious movement
counting off the hours of love is the famous Calibre F185, which powered the world's very first
ladies' flyback chronograph in 1998!
Modern and feminine to the tips of its hands, the Blancpain Women “Saint-Valentin 2009” reveals a
graceful, playful spirit. The 34 mm case is happily wed to a white mother-of-pearl dial adorned with
a precious ruby heart. The Arabic hour-markers and contemporary-style hollowed cone-shaped
hands provide an exquisite counterfoil for the traditional colour of passion, reflected by rubies and
the symbolic date of the 14th – the only one appearing in crimson red.
The Blancpain Women “Saint-Valentin 2009” reveals its inner beauty with striking simplicity. It
houses Calibre F185 which drives the chronograph functions, the hours, minutes and small seconds,
as well as the date display. This complex mechanism features silky-smooth handling via the
chronograph push pieces, such as can only be offered by a column-wheel system– the exclusive
signature of Haute Horlogerie chronographs.
Through the sapphire crystal case-back, the lucky lady who owns this watch can admire the
meticulous finishing and hand-crafted decoration, characteristic of that lavished on all Blancpain
movements in harmony with the noblest traditions of watchmaking excellence. Issued in a limited
edition of 99, the Blancpain Women “Saint-Valentin 2009” is fitted with a hand-sewn white
alligator leather strap complete with a folding clasp.
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
