Blancpain Villeret Large Date Jour Retrograde - When luxurious functionality gets a new look
The allure of the exotic is one of the strongest forces in the modern watch world. With the Blancpain Villeret Large Date Jour Retrograde, the Swiss luxury brand turns the traditional notion of a day date complication on its head and presents a unique combination of panoramic date and retrograde weekday. At the same time, the handmade manufacture calibre 6950GJ impresses with its superior performance and stylish decoration.
Timeless, well-arranged and harmonious
The dial of the Large Date Jour Retrograde is dominated by timeless elegance and simplicity: while Roman numerals add a classic touch, the large date between five and six o'clock catches the eye with its excellent readability. Right next to this complication, the next special feature of the masterpiece awaits you with the retrograde weekday display. Characterized by its blue hand, it discreetly sets the Large Date Jour Retrograde apart from the masses and can be enjoyed in everyday life with a quick glance.
Just like the versatile GMT Collection Demi-Fuseau Horaire, the case of the Large Date Jour Retrograde comes in either stainless steel or 18-carat rose gold. The former corresponds to a white dial, while the gold editions are available in a slightly darker colouring in opalin. No matter which case, the 40-millimetre large masterpiece impresses with excellent wearing comfort, disappears smoothly under each sleeve thanks to its low height of 11 millimetres and provides deep insights into its elaborate mechanics on the back.
Hidden correctors for the perfect look
A successful symbiosis of beauty and performance awaits you under the sapphire crystal case back: while 72 hours of power reserve guarantee full endurance, Geneva stripes ensure a luxurious appearance of the automatic movement. You will notice another highlight of the Large Date Jour Retrograde among the strap lugs: Not only are the correctors for the large date and day of the week easy to use, but thanks to their complete invisibility while worn, they also preserve the aesthetic appearance of the men's watch.
The impressive perfection of today's Villeret watches is the result of almost 300 years of company history: founded in 1735 by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain on the upper floor of his private home, the brand is now regarded as the oldest watch manufacturer in the world and a specialist in high-end complications. The wandering equation of time of the Villeret Équation du Temps Marchante provides a fascinating example of the talent of the experienced mechanics from Le Brassus.
