Blancpain brings an original note to its Villeret Collection in 2012, with a retrograde small seconds to whet the appetite! This most classic of the brand’s collections welcomes its first model to feature a flinqué lacquered dial while preserving its pure lines. Multiple layers of translucent blue lacquer are applied to the dial to create an impression of incomparable depth.

Housed inside the 40-mm white gold case, the ultra-slim 7663Q calibre offers a 3-day power reserve. This new automatic movement displays hours, minutes and date, shown by a central serpentine pointer, with retrograde seconds at 6 o’clock. Fast date adjustment is by the under-lug corrector at 5 o’clock. A demonstration of subtle balance that is the epitome of Blancpain’s savoir-faire.
