In pictures: Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet with Blue Dial

The Villeret product line is one of the pillars in the production of Swiss Manufacture Blancpain. It takes its name from the village where Jehan-Jacques Blancpain started his activity as "horloger" in 1735,  establishing what is considered today the oldest watch brand in activity (you can read its history here).

The Villeret Quantième Complet with Blue Dial ref. 6654-3640 is a beautiful example of the design code that characterises this classic and elegant collection.

Few days ago we had the chance to take some pictures of this complete calendar model at the Pisa flagship store in Milan and we are now delighted to share them with our readers. The watch is also available through their digital platform for collectors, Pisa Circle (click here to read about it).

The Villeret Quantième Complet (or Complete Calendar in English) comes in a 40 mm case in polished red gold that frames an eye-catching midnight blue dial whose sunburst patterning creates a fascinating play of light.
 
The complete calendar indications are well organised and readable at first glance. At 12 o'clock we find the apertures indicating the day of the week and month while the date is indicated by a serpentine hand.  At 6 o’clock, the moon-phase display is characterized by a mischievous face.

The applied hour-markers with Roman numerals are crafted in red gold, just like the four hands. The hour and minute hands are elegantly shaped like cut-out sage leaves while the seconds hand bears the initials of founder Jehan-Jacques Blancpain.

When you turn the watch, the transparent sapphire crystal caseback reveals the 6654 self-winding Calibre comprised of 321 components and offering 72 hours of power reserve.

This state-of-the-art movement is equipped with a safety system that prevents any improper use of the functions, making it possible to set the complete calendar at any time without risks for the movement.

A very interesting design detail, the four under-lug correctors make it possible to adjust the three calendar indications and the moon phase with a finger tip without needing any pusher tool. This patented solution offers another important benefit: the smooth case flanks are unmarred by corrector dimples, generally found on other calendar watches.

The finishes are outstanding with a Côtes de Genève motif adorning the bridge and an intricate honeycomb pattern enhancing the red gold oscillating weight.

Matched to an alligator leather strap with a folding clasp in rose gold and water resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet, the Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet with Blue Dial ref. 6654-3640 has a suggested retail price of CHF 24,000 / Euro 25,570. blancpain.com
