Official description

Blancpain presents a new Boutique Edition of its Villeret Extraplate watch. This timepiece features a yellow gold case framing a green dial – a first in the Villeret collection.

Blancpain’s native village of Villeret lends its name to the most classic collection from the Brand. Anchored in tradition, these models personify the roots of the Manufacture and embody its primary aesthetic choices. The purity of their lines and the slenderness of their double-stepped cases express the essence of horology with timeless elegance.

The Villeret Extraplate Boutique Edition reveals these codes in a new light. Blancpain's traditional cut-out sage leaf-shaped hands sweep over a dial that is green for the very first time. This shimmering new colour with its sunburst finish is paired with a 40 mm-diameter yellow gold case housing Blancpain's 1151 calibre. While the latter appears simple at first glance, the complex construction of this mechanism stems from a balancing act that involves achieving the most pleasing slenderness while guaranteeing accuracy and reliability.
