Founded by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain in Villeret, Switzerland in 1735, Blancpain is the oldest surviving watchmaking brand in the world. In 1953 it produced the famous Fifty Fathoms diving watch and later the Grande Complication wristwatch 1735 and since that time he has specialized in watches with many complications such as this lot. Blancpain’s native village of Villeret lends its name to the most classic collection from the brand. The lot offered here is a perfect example of this Villeret family, fully made in yellow gold it does not have a classical style with a very unusual multiple stripes of diamond set brilliant cut for the bezel that stands out and matching perfectly the diamond-set hours markers too. The clarity of the white dial is completed by its original box and warranty. The timelessly elegant this watch incorporates is the results of recent researches conducted by Blancpain in the field of the innovations and design.
