Blancpain Villeret Grande DateJourRétrograde watch hands
Villeret is one of Blancpain's most important and well-known collections, representing the classic side of the brand's personality. In my opinion, it may be classical, but too conservative or boring. Blancpain Villeret GrandeJourRétrograde was launched in Baselworld in 2018, presenting a pair of useful complex features in a slightly unique way, just to mix. I believe this special combination of features and the movements that power it are new to the brand, and the reversal of the week is a new feature of the Villeret collection.
The Blancpain Villeret features a stepped (or "double pomme", as Blancpain calls) bezel, thin hands and deep Roman numerals, leaving a lot of open dial space. For simple two- or three-hand models, such as the Blancpain Villeret with a enamel dial and an 8-day power reserve, this makes us look very formal. For me, this is still a great everyday item, but this elegant asymmetrical design allows you to watch up close. I think my favorite example in the Villaret series is the Quantime Annuel GMT we see here.topswisswrist.com
The Blancpain Villeret Grande DateJourRétrograde is 40 mm wide and 11.1 mm thick (water resistant to 30 m) for formal or everyday wear with an automatic movement and practical features. The French name descriptively means only "big date retrograde day". The complexity of dates and dates is about the most popular and convenient ones, but Blancpain presents each one in an unusual way. “Grand Dating” is one of my favorite complex features, mainly because it forces the date to become more prominent and subtly integrated into the design. It uses a wheel to display each number, which is naturally more complicated than the more common single date wheel.
If you are new to watches, "retrograde" in this case means that it is not the analog hand moving in a continuous circle, but jumping back to the beginning of anything that indicates a restart. This can and has been used for almost any type of time-dependent display because the watchmaker achieves novelty and simplicity of complexity for its own sake. Of course, it just means more creative choices. Complications typically involve a snail cam and a spring that is wrapped and then released to power the jump. All types of retrograde displays are interesting because they add animation to the dial as the hand moves back quickly. For Blancpain Villeret Grande DateJourRétrograde, it will only appear once a week on Sunday at midnight or as you set it up. However, Blancpain tells us that this happens at midnight just at the same time as the date changes - not for all sports.Richard Mille RM 55 replica watches price
Blancpain's internal 6950GC automatic movement is a new variant of the 6950 movement, while the latter is based on the previous 1150 model. This increases the number of retrograde days for existing large date movements and can also be found in the Villeret series. The 6950GC operates at 4 Hz and the two barrels provide a 72-hour power reserve. It is shown by a bottom cover with Geneva stripes and a guilloche rotor with a cooled honeycomb pattern.
Blancpain has a neat little watch system with multiple displays that need to be adjusted regularly. For the Blancpain Villeret Grande DateJourRétrograde, the date and time are set by the crown, and the only other monitor that can be adjusted is the day of the week. To do this, Blancpain has a small aligner underneath a finger-operated lug - not on some watches that require tools and some pushers or "pits" that add visual clutter. .hot Hublot BIG BANG SANG BLEU 415.NX.1112.VR.MXM16 replica watch
The days of retrograde stop at 8 o'clock and off-center big dates, and the asymmetrical design like the dial of the Blancpain Villeret Grande DateJourRétrograde always causes splitting. Some of the other aesthetically pleasing watches I think of include the small complication of Drive De Cartier we reviewed here, some Grand Seiko watches, such as the Spring Drive chronograph SBGC001 reviewed here, or F.P. Journe Octa Sport.

This special or bold design can be fascinating when it works well, but the danger of error is that it is annoying or seemingly messy to the wearer for a long time. I am very open to this type of thing and feel that Blancpain has done a very good and organized job here. However, looking at the dial, I really want to know if the power reserve indicator around the current 3 o'clock part of the internal dial also looks cool.
The Blancpain Villeret Grande DateJourRétrograde is a combination of two case materials and a dial. The steel dial features a white dial or a red gold dial with a silver dial. Each dial features a leather strap or mesh strap that matches the case. I will definitely choose a steel bracelet.
