Villeret Mouvement Inverse Serti Neige

Covered with 815 diamonds in all totalling to 3.3 carats, the Snow-set Inverted Movement offers an entirely new personality of Blancpain's legendary caliber 15 movement reserved for only the most special timepieces in Blancpain's collection.


In order to present what is otherwise the back of the movement on the front of the watch, Blancpain had to reverse the axes for the hour and minute hands so that they would support the hands on the opposite side of the watch from "normal".


Naturally, with the reversal of position, a gearing change was also required so that the hour and minute hands would rotate in the correct direction.
