Swiss watchmaker Blancpain has created a watch especially for the day of love. Elegant and charming, the watch boasts a flurry of hearts within in a mother-of-pearl base in a subtle play on texture and form inspired by the universal symbols for love.
The watch features a mother-of-pearl base enhanced by diamond hour markers. Distinguished by their volume, five red-lacquered mother-of-pearl marquetry hearts provide color and brilliance. The timepiece boasts a 34 millimeter steel case topped by a bezel set with two rows of full-cut diamonds, while the middle is adorned at 9 o’clock with five liquid ceramic hearts. In addition, the seconds hand’s counterweight takes the form of the Blancpain logo, equipped with a mechanical self-winding Calibre 1150. The timepiece is also endowed with a 100-hour power reserve to offer efficient use of daily functions. Acting as the perfect finish, a seamless white ostrich leather strap featuring an alzavel lining conceals more red hearts in a seemingly intimate and personalized portrayal of love. The model is issued in a 99-piece limited-edition and enclosed in a white wooden presentation box coated with white hearts mirroring the design of the dial. Blancpain’s new Valentine’s Day timepiece is an endearing gift to give your beloved in as an emblem of affection and love.
