BLANCPAIN Quantième à Phases De Lune Demi-Savonnette

Introduced in 1999 by BLANCPAIN, this haute horlogerie masterpiece in rose gold reflects a successful alliance between the art of watch manufacturing and astronomy. Inspired from the historic half-hunter watches, the BLANCPAIN Quantième à Phases De Lune Demi-Savonnette is fitted with a single cover rather than two like the hunter.

The opaline dial features gold facetted applique hour markers and facetted, luminous skeleton hands for hour and minute indication. The month and day indication is displayed through a window at 12’o clock.

The small seconds dial at 6’o clock also incorporates Moonphase indication. A centre hand with red pointer tips indicates the date. The decorated movement, with an automatic moon-phase calendar with two barrels and a rotor in solid gold, can be seen through the sapphire crystal.
