SEMAINIER GRANDE DATE 8 DAYS

SEMAINIER GRANDE DATE 8 DAYS

A GRANDE DATE & WEEK OF THE YEAR TOGETHER !

This timepiece (part of the Villeret Collection and launched at Baselworld 2017) offers an interesting calibre with nice complications/indications.

Very Fine and Elegant, we all know the BLANCPAIN « Timeless » approach on their creations. Nevertheless, the brand managed to integrate a lot of indications on this one
and we love it. It’s quite difficult to know if you want/need more (or less) informations on your wrist… but for sure, the SEMAINIER GRANDE DATE 8 DAYS has its purpose
and continues to complete a strong collection.

The dial is made of « Grand Feu » enamel and you’ll find on it :

- Two apertures at 6 o’clock displaying the Date
- The Day of the week at 9 o’clock (small blued hand)
- The Week of the year (number of the week) on the rim of the dial with the blued serpentine hand
- Hour and Minutes indications, of course

Its back is very well done! A nice finishing on the components, a great decoration on the oscillating weight and few important details such as a balance spring in silicon (impervious to magnetic fields)…

BLANCPAIN’s patented correctors are present (on the back) at 11 o’clock to modify the Day of the week and 1 o’clock for the Week of the year. To set the rest, you only need the crown. Easy, isn't it ?

Definitely part of our favourite novelties of Baselworld 2017.
Congratulations! BLANCPAIN.
