Introduced in 1999, the BLANCPAIN 2135 is the first minute repeater wristwatch with water-resistant to 30 meters, thanks to an exclusive patented locking mechanism which seals the case. When it is open, the valve on the left side frees a spring inside that enables the repeater mechanism to be wound.
To ensure total water-resistance, though, it must be closed. This blocks the repeater mechanism. This exceptional watch has a yellow gold case from the 2100 line and is fitted with the famous automatic 0035 movement launched by the brand in 1988, one of the smallest and flattest of its kind. The white opaline dial with brushed sunray pattern features a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock.
