Elegantly framed by a 38.6mm diameter 18-carat red-gold case with 40 sparkling diamonds set into its bezel, this new self-winding chronograph model has a mother-of-pearl dial split on to two levels delineated by diamonds. The upper segment features an off-centre time display with Roman numerals, while the lower half bears the two chronograph counters with oversized Arabic numerals. The large date windows at 6 o’clock take the form of two opposing crescents and display the date with a distinctive font. It is powered by Blancpain Calibre 26F8G, a mechanical self-winding movement composed of 495 parts that offers a 40-hour power reserve.
