Blancpain Ladybird Colours extends its Valentine's tradition

For more than two decades, the brand’s watchmakers have created a special timepiece for Valentine’s Day. For the 2024 edition, the inspiration comes from the Ladybird Colours line, featuring its vibrant red colour palette, heart motifs, and brilliant diamonds.


he Ladybird Colours line is home to the most recent members of the women’s timepiece collection with, as the name suggests, a broad and rich colour palette. For Valentine’s Day, Ladybird Colours glows red. Its dial fashioned from an exclusive variety of mother of pearl features red roman numerals to which extra visual depth is given by a time-consuming process that requires five separate applications of colour.

All of the Ladybird Colours dials showcase a fine gold ring at 6 o’clock, set by hand with graduated diamonds. For the Valentine’s edition, the lower portion of the diamond set ring has been given the shape of a heart. Cupid’s arrow adds to the Valentine’s theme as it forms the large seconds hand, carrying a small red heart and a feather-shaped counterweight.

The movement is Blancpain’s in-house 1153 automatic winding caliber beating at 3 Hz. The movement’s two mainspring barrels ensure that the watch will achieve a four-day power reserve. The white gold winding rotor has been open worked with a heart motif, which is visible through the sapphire case back.
