Blancpain Villeret Squellette 8 Jours
For centuries, watchmakers have been cutting and engraving movement parts to reveal their heart and endow them with a new aesthetic dimension.
In openworking or “skeletonworking” these new parts, they choose to highlight their creations and their technical innovations. Blancpain pays tribute to a long line of haute horlogerie adventurers with a unique, highly technical and aesthetically accomplished timepiece.
This entirely openworked movement gem-set with diamonds total to 1.619 carats is available in both white and rose gold.
Tradition born of innovation - Blancpain was founded in 1735 in the Swiss Jura by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain and is the world’s oldest watchmaking brand. Over the years it has invented countless complications, remaining ever-faithful to its tradition of innovation, and this quest for invention still drives the Master Watchmakers of the Manufacture today.
Blancpain is determined to push the boundaries of its inheritance through constant self-renewal and improve its timepieces by constantly challenging watchmaking constraints.
Thanks to its capacity to develop exceptional movements, the Manufacture has launched no less than 32 new calibres over the past nine years, a testimony to the remarkable creative spirit of the brand.
The philosophy of “Tradition of Innovation” is expressed in every single model of the range: the legendary Fifty Fathoms diver’s watch, the classic Villeret collection as well as the high complication Le Brassus collection, the sportive L-evolution line, and the Women models.
