Founded by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain in Villeret, Switzerland, in 1735, Blancpain is the oldest surviving watchmaking brand in the world. In 1953 has 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 but also in precious time-only creation, such as the present 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 Pink Baguette Sapphire Set for the bezel that stands out and matches perfectly the baguette diamond-set lugs. The clarity of the white dial with pink sapphires for the hours markers is completed by its original box and warranty. This timelessly elegant watch incorporates the results of recent research conducted by Blancpain in the field of the innovations and design.
