Blancpain – Villeret Quantième Perpétuel 8 Jours
Following the Villeret 8 Days , the Villeret Quantième Perpétuel 8 Jours (ref. 6659-3631-55B) introduced by Blancpain at Baselworld 2014 houses a completely new perpetual schedule development highlighting a 8-day power reserve, small seconds and an enormous moon stage at 6 o’clock.
The new programmed Caliber 5939A, which comprises 379 sections, won’t need any schedule change, taking into account the differing month lengths and jump years, until year 2100. If necessary, the schedule signs can be changed whenever without danger of harming the development.
There are no noticeable schedule correctors working on it band leaving the lines of the 42 mm red gold case spotless and smooth. Indeed, on account of a Blancpain patent, the four correctors are put under the drags. The development, with its honeycomb-theme enlivened rotor, is obvious through the sapphire case-back.
Much the same as for the Villeret 8 Days, the dial of the Quantième Perpétuel 8 Jours is in excellent feu polish with large painted hour-markers. The hands demonstrating our own, minutes, seconds and jump year are made of gold while blued steel hands are utilized for the schedule.
A chocolate earthy colored croc lash completes the watch. Blancpain will likewise give a platinum restricted release of the Villeret Quantième Perpétuel 8 Jours. The watch is conveyed with a winder serving to keep the watch on time when it isn’t worn.
