A Swiss-based luxury watchmaker, Blancpain, presented their latest addition of the Women family of watches. The new Retrograde Calendar wristwatch is aesthetically innovative and it will surely become a perfect timekeeping companion for modern women who appreciate romantic and stylish things.

The most impressive part of the watch is its dial. The one-of-a-kind dial features mother-of-pearl marquetry and adorable detailing. First of all, the hour and minute hands are decentralized and moved in the lower part of the dial, at the 6 o’clock position.
A dreamlike nature of this exquisite watch is represented by the moon phase indicator at the 12 o’clock position, which lies against a starry, diamond-studded sky. The calendar is indicated by a retrograde hand, which constantly jumps back to the first day of the month. The serpentine blue hand has a star on its tip, ensuring the perfect visibility of the date which is displayed in the upper section of the dial.
The brand’s name and “1735” that reveals the year when the company was established are located at the 9 o’clock position.
The beauty and femininity are also expressed oh the sapphire crystal case-back of the watch which reveals a nice flower-shaped oscillating weight.
