Watch real shot show:
Case diameter 40 mm
Available in rose gold and platinum
Based on the 1150 movement, the new women’s day and night display watch uses a larger movement size. The winding oscillating weight has been beautifully carved and polished. The sapphire crystal is transparent, which greatly enhances the visual beauty of the complex process. The watch case has a diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of less than 12 mm. It is more harmonious in size and thickness. The four-layer dial is entirely made of mother-of-pearl, divided into three areas, and the different heights of each layer create a strong depth of field effect. Increasing the height of the layer requires careful and careful craftsmanship at each step on the mother-of-pearl dial, because this layer of material embedded in German silver will be thinner and therefore more fragile than the previous layer fragile.
Watch details real shot display:
The second hand advances in an arc and returns to its starting point momentarily after 60 seconds
The hour hand retrogrades twice a day to achieve day and night changes
Watch with white ostrich leather strap
Equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement
The day and night display dial rotates twice a day, and the length of each change is about 4 minutes. As the dial itself is exquisitely decorated, all the details on the two dials will suddenly come into view when they are interlaced. The creation of this day and night dial also introduced many artistic techniques and craftsmanship, such as: la décalque (precipitated material), lechamplevé (embossed outline), and le marquetage (integrated superimposed pattern on mother-of-pearl) and so on. The blue gradation precipitated on the mother-of-pearl shows the time change from day to night. The moon is made up of 50 crystal flash diamonds, while the sun uses the same dazzling 50 yellow sapphires, matching the yellow mother-of-pearl dot pattern on the embellishment plate and 14 gorgeous diamonds symbolizing the stars.
Summary: The new women’s day and night display watch is equipped with an extraordinary unique movement and dual retrograde indication function. The dial adopts fine workmanship and a lot of technical innovations, ensuring the watch’s unique independent day and night display. Blancpain’s brand new movement specially created for the women’s collection perfectly embodies the ‘innovation is tradition’ rooted in the brand’s genes as the ‘maker of classic timepieces’.
