A combination of technical refinement and aesthetic simplicity, this Blancpain Villeret Ultraplate watch is incredibly elegant and sets itself apart from the rest by the technical accomplishments needed to create it.
The watch features an 18ct red gold case, 40mm in diameter, with a red gold winding crown and a sapphire crystal underside to see the mechanics of the watch movement. This model uses a Blancpain Calibre 7663Q self-winding automatic movement which has retrograde seconds function.
Its enhanced functionality makes it slightly thicker than the rest of the Villeret family at 10.3mm thick. The white opaline dial is marked with red gold Roman numerals, pointed to by red gold dauphine hands with an open aperture in their centre, while the conventional date window has been replaced by a dialled date function which sits just inside the hour markers on the watch face.
The date hand is a wonderfully curved abstract blue hand that hovers just above each date index. The dial is finished off with a beautiful retrograde seconds dial at 6 o’clock, repeating itself every 30 seconds. This is all fastened with a brown alligator strap with a folding clasp.
