While Blanpain showed its classic touch with the new Villeret Grande Date, the Swiss watch brand also unveiled its futuristic vision with the L-evolution Tourbillon Carrousel.
It’s a mean machine, combining a tourbillon at 11 o’clock and a carrousel at 5 o’clock that will make your head spin. But it’s the avant-garde platinum case design and highly skeletonized dial that make the Blancpain L-evolution Tourbillon Carrousel so special. It’s one of the sportiest watches unveiled this year at Baselworld, and we never thought we would be saying that of a Blancpain.
On the wrist, it feels less imposing than the official 47.5 mm diameter communicated by the brand, but that’s due to its cushion-shaped case being turned by 45 degrees.
Blancpain’s novelty piece houses the Caliber 2322V2, standing for version 2. An improvement on the Caliber 2322 used in the original Tourbillon Carrousel, it boasts a power reserve of 168 hours.
The L-evolution Tourbillon Carrousel is a limited edition of 50 models and is priced at $373,130.
