Blancpain Retrograde Calendar
Developed in a resolutely romantic and contemporary spirit, the Retrograde Calendar is a perfect expression of refinement and watchmaking know-how.
The concave case, in red or white gold, proudly displays the brilliant craftsmanship of an engraved flank. The lunette, set with 40 diamonds in total of 2.021 carats, plus the white strap, accent the femininity of this piece, with the final flourish seen in a diamond-topped crown.
The sapphire display back showcases the charming flower-shaped oscillating weight, and the beating heart of this timepiece, the calibre 2660RL.
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.
