As Valentine’s Day approaches, Blancpain is preparing for the occasion with the launch of watch that celebrates the day of love and lovers. Don’t worry, the Saint-Valentin 2017 watch isn’t covered in hearts and flowers, instead it takes a restrained approach to romance with a simple design and a little bling.
The 29 mm case features 68 diamonds all over its steel bezel and lugs and another 8 diamonds on the mother-of-pearl dial. The watch is filled with cute details, like the red tipped arrow which represents the second hand (Cupid’s arrow anyone?) and even a heart made up of red rubies at 12 o’ clock (we said the watch isn’t covered with hearts, but just one makes a cute tribute!). 19 buff top rubies comprise the heart, adding a bit of colourful shine to this otherwise plain watch.
Inside the watch is the Caliber 913 movement with a glucydur balance-wheel fitted with micrometric regulating screws and equipped with a balance-spring in silicon. Through the sapphire crystal caseback, you can see the white gold oscillating weight adorned with a snailed bevel, polished angles, as well as straight and circular Côtes de Genève. The watch comes with interchangeable straps in red and white.
Only 99 engraved pieces have been produced and they will sell out soon!
