A mélange of femininity and emotions, the new Saint-Valentin 2011 Complete Calendar lady`s watch presented by Blancpain is an exquisite accessory that can successfully embrace the wrist of sophisticated women.
The round-shaped case of the new Blancpain timepiece is crafted in stainless steel. With 34 mm in diameter and 11.05 in height, the case is 50-meter water-resistant.
Elegant lugs and a graceful time-setting crown (placed at 3 o`clock) give a graceful look to the new Saint-Valentin 2011 Complete Calendar lady`s watch. Also made of stainless steel, the bezel harmoniously matches the case while featuring sparkling diamonds and a heart-shaped ruby. Certainly a highlight of this Blancpain watch, this jewel dominates the Roman numeral at 12 o`clock.
Still, the ruby is not alone, but coordinated with the heart-shaped centralized date hand tip which gently indicates the Arabic numerals around the date ring. There are steel arrow-shaped central hands for showing the hours and minutes that passes. In addition, the hour and minute hands are treated with a luminous compound so that they provide visibility to the dial when light is low.
The mother-of-pearl dial of the Blancpain lady`s watch reveals three applied Roman numerals and 9 dazzling diamonds which stand as hour-markers. The dial is protected by a high-quality sapphire crystal.
The window at 6 o`clock reveals the moon-phase. This feature needs manual correction every 32 months and it is allied with a hand which indicates the small seconds.
The look of the new Saint-Valentin 2011 Complete Calendar lady`s watch is equilibration by two separate apertures that show a month and a day of the week. Beneath these rectangular sud-dials, there is Blancpain`s logo.
The Swiss-made self-winding Calibre 6763 movement, the heat of this timepiece, is manufactured by Frederic Piguet. The mechanism is adorned with 30 jewels and comprises a winding rotor engraved with stylized hearts. Having a 27 mm diameter and 4.90 mm in height, the 261 individual parts movement provides a 100-hour power-reserve.
A glance through the sapphire crystal case-back offers a breath-taking view of the movement in all its details. The calendar feature has to be manually corrected five times a year, when there are months with less than 31 days.
The new Saint-Valentin 2011 Complete Calendar lady`s watch is complimented with a white alligator leather strap secured with a deployant clasp. The model comes in a limited edition of only 99 pieces.
