For the first time in the Villeret collection, Blancpain is offering a timepiece with a large date. This elegant and useful complication enables optimal readability of the date by means of a display comprising two broad apertures. Calibre 6950 beating at the heart of this timepiece comprises two barrels and an ingenious large date mechanism equipped with a protective shock-absorbing system. This remarkably accurate and reliable automatic movement also features a variable-inertia balance with a silicon balance-spring and gold adjusting screws. With its classic double-stepped red gold case and its opaline dial, the Villeret Large Date embodies all the values of traditional watchmaking and bears the signature pure lines and timeless aesthetic of the entire Villeret collection.
