Combining diamonds and a case with sleek, understated lines, matched with an elegant satin or python strap, Blancpain has chosen to associate these luxurious watches, radiating a refinement conducive to expressing elegance and beauty, with the orchid. Capricious, strange and bewitching, the orchid symbolises purity and elegance. The embodiment of refined sensuality, this jewellery-watch plays on contrasts and materials.
Complex and yet discreet, it reveals its inner beauty with the charm of true simplicity. As befits these most classical timepieces in the collection, they are all equipped with Blancpain’s signature complete calendar movement. The theme of this elegant complication is confirmed by the clever integration of the calendar indications appearing on the dial. Slender and original Roman numerals are set off by subtle geometrical contrasts.
At the centre of the round dial, a square minute track underscores the originality of the moon with its distinctly human face. The centre panel of the dial framing the calendar indications is fashioned out of mother of pearl in a colour matching that of the dial perimeter. The full moon bears harmonious feminine features graced with a tiny star-shaped “beauty spot”. Individually set diamonds on each side of the case provide a stylish counterpoint to the refined calendar.
So as to preserve this precious blend of classicism, exquisite refinement and elegance, the 34 mm cases of the two models are offered exclusively in white gold.
Endowed with a 100-hour power reserve, mechanical self-winding Calibre 6753 drives indications of the hours, minute, seconds, pointer-type date display, day of the week, month and moon phases. These ultra-chic timepieces are available in a choice of white or black colour scheme, complemented by straps matching the colour of the dial.
This collection is equipped with the brand-new folding clasp system for the straps. Built with double folding arms engraved with the decorative Blancpain logo, each side is guided into place by a cleverly integrated spring, making the clasp look exactly like a classic pin buckle.
To further integrate these fine timepieces into the lifestyle of today’s women, Blancpain has re-invented the presentation box that accompanies each watch. Fashioned out of marbled maple wood, this elegant showcase also provides storage space for other fine jewellery creations.
