This month, Haute Time will feature 24 gift ideas leading up to this year’s winter holidays. Inspired by the watchmaking industry, these gifts will be dedicated to collectors of all things hand-crafted. Join us every morning on Haute Time to discover a new idea for that special someone this winter.
Today, we present not one, but two gifts that can complement each other perfectly. Housed in a 42mm platinum case, the Villeret Quantième Perpétuel is the first perpetual calendar model in Blancpain’s esteemed Villeret collection.
Its white grand feu enamel dial features hours and minutes, as well as small seconds and a moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock, and three subdials with blued steel hands: the month and leap-year at 12 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock, and the day at 9 o’clock.
At its heart is the Calibre 5939A, the new self-winding perpetual calendar movement developed and produced in-house by Blancpain. It boasts an 8-day power reserve and will keep track of the varying month lengths and leap years involved in the Gregorian calendar without any need for adjustment until 2100.
To complement this limited edition (188 pieces), Blancpain is offering a unique line of accessories reflecting the principles of excellence etched into the company DNA. Inspired by the the Villeret Quantième Perpétuel, this pair of Oscillating Weight Cufflinks (Product name: BM.008*) is the perfect companion to the wristwatch. Crafted in white gold, they adopt the brand’s characteristic shapes and decorations.
