Villeret 8-day Squelette debuts an openworked movement

by 03 April 2012

Blancpain’s iconic Villeret collection sees a new sophisticated movement. Its light, airy design immediately caught my attention when I saw the new Villeret 8-day Squelette at Baselworld 2012. The openworked, hand-wound Calibre 1333SQ manufactured by Blancpain is housed inside an elegant 38-mm white gold case. It has a titanium balance, a Breguet balance-spring, and three barrels providing an impressive power reserve of eight days. What makes this movement so special is its beautiful openworked, bevelling and engraving craftsmanship. You can see its light, airy design through two sapphire crystals on the front and back of the timepiece.
