Blancpain - 8 Day Large Date Week Indication

Blancpain keeps enriching the Villeret line with models of great elegance, like the new 8 Day Large Date Week Indication (or “Semainier Grande Date 8 Jours” in French).



The pure and classical lines of the timepiece frame a a precious full fired enamel dial with enamel-painted chapter ring and logo. This decorative technique requires many successive oven firings at an extremely high temperature of more than 800° Celsius.



This latest creation from the Manufacture offers a large twin-aperture date display, along with a week of the year indication showing the number of the week (and consequently also the month) around the rim of its dial with a distinctive blued serpentine hand. Although not often seen on timepieces, this function is particularly appreciated by businessmen which often use the week number for their planning.


The change of the week of the year takes place with the transition from Sunday and Monday. The numbering from 1-53 is a reminder that certain years comprise 53 weeks according to official calendars.

The day of the week is easily readable on a subdial at 9 o’clock indicated by a blued hand.


The red gold 42 mm x 13.4 mm case is equipped with Blancpain’s patented under-lug correctors that are entirely out of view when the watch is worn, thereby accentuating the Manufacture’s goal of achieving the purest and most aesthetically pleasing possible case design.

This system also enables the owner of this timepiece to adjust the indications with a finger tip, thus avoiding the need for a stylus tool. The corrector at 11 o’clock serves to modify the day of the week  while its counterpart at 1 o’clock controls the week of the year.


The large date is set via the crown. The water resistance of the watch is 3 bar (30 metres / 100 feet).

This refined Blancpain timepiece is powered by Calibre 3738G2, a 378-part self-winding movement which is equipped with three mainspring barrels guaranteeing a remarkable 8-day power reserve. The movement features a titanium variable-inertia balance with gold micrometric regulation screws and a balance spring in silicon, a material that offers several important advantages. In fact, its low density makes it lighter and thus more shock-resistant. In addition, it is impervious to magnetic fields. The resulting balance spring is ideally shaped, thereby ensuring improved isochronism performance of the movement, which in turn leads to enhanced timekeeping precision.


The sapphire case back provides a clear view of the finely hand-finished movement and the gold winding rotor with its honeycomb guilloché pattern.


Matched to a hand-stitched chocolate-coloured alligator strap, the new Blancpain 8 Day Large Date Week Indication (ref. 6637-3631-55) has a suggested retail price of around Euro 34,300 / US$ 36,300. blancpain.com
