For fourteen years in a row, Blancpain marks the Valentine’s Day by introducing special timepieces for women, each representing an authentic interpretation of love.
For Valentine’s Day in 2014, the famous Swiss manufacturer has prepared a gorgeous watch that boasts a diamond-clad bezel and a beautiful mother-of-pearl dial full of details that celebrate love. First of all, there are two engraved hearts and a purple-colored transferred heart. These hearts float like dainty bubbles and leave a great impression. Furthermore, there are seven diamond hour-markers (weighing 0.04 carats), polished white gold Roman numerals 6, 9 and 12, and a date aperture located at the 3 o’clock position. There is also an embroidery-like border, as well as Blancpain’s logo which is located between 10 and 11 o’clock position. The hands are made from white gold.
Blancpain’s Valentine’s Day ladies watch (ref. 6604-4654-55B) is housed in a round, stainless steel case which measures 33mm in diameter and just 8.65mm in thickness. Its feminine case incorporates a stunning bezel paved with a row of sparkling diamonds (weighing approximately 0.9 carats) and a screw-down crown with the brand’s logo on its tip. The case is well sized and appropriate even for a thin wrist of a lady.
The new Blancpain is equipped with the iconic Blancpain Caliber 1150 automatic movement which is tooled with a silicon balance-spring that is non-magnetic and preserves a more constant rate over time. The mechanism measures only 26mm in diameter and 3.25mm in height. Despite its small size, the movement boasts an impressive power reserve of 100 hours. The mechanism is compiled on 28 jewels, has a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour (4 Hz) and it is composed of 210 individual components.
The open worked case back of the watch is sealed with a sapphire crystal, and it shows the workings of the impeccable movement. On the case back, you can also see a special golden oscillating weight with a romantic heart-shaped aperture which is cut through its circular-brushed yellow gold mass.
Blancpain Saint Valentine 2014 is constructed to resist water pressure of up to 30 meters (about 100 feet) thanks to a sapphire crystal’s coating. For the best comfort of the wearer, Blancpain attached the new ladies watch to an elegant white leather strap. The watch is produced in the limited quantity of only 99 pieces, so do not wait long with the purchase.
