Baselworld 2010 will mark the 275th Anniversary for Blancpain. The company is using this occasion to debut a new Villeret Collection.

Blancpain will unveil the first timepiece from this new series – a new complete calendar moon-phase model.

The new watch will feature a fully secure calendar mechanism with its patented under-lug correctors. This design allows the timepiece sides with a remarkably pure finish, thus unmarred by the presence of adjusters.

Villeret Collection bears the name of Blancpain’s birthplace, and the company has a long history of quality luxury watches.

The advantage of the under-lug that required changes can now be accomplished with your finger tips rather than needing a dedicated tool.

For the first model of the new Villeret Collection, Blancpain has opted for a luxurious, 40 mm half-hunter red gold case. It will also be decorated with an opaline dial.

The new Blancpain Villeret Collection features stylish aesthetics and complications that have been the foundation of Blancpain’s core since the early 1980’s.

The complete calendar moon-phase, offering both understatement and elegance, has always been the signature complication for the Villeret Collection.

Blancpain’s exclusive in-house automatic calibre is fitted with a balance that oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The watch also comes with an antimagnetic index assembly, plus two barrels guaranteeing it a 72-hour power reserve.

The new Villeret model is almost as complex as a full perpetual calendar, and features a revolutionary method for adjusting the indications without fear of movement damage, regardless of the time of day.

To facilitate setting of the indications, Blancpain has equipped the new Villeret timepiece with its patented under-lug correctors.
