On the advent of this kind and warm Father’s Day, Blancpain will select 3 watches to dedicate to his father, to give his father the warmest greetings.
‘Today is Monday, January 31.’ This is a date that is commonly used by people. Why don’t ordinary watches display the date in this way? On the dials of most watches, the date is displayed in one place and the day of the week is displayed in another place, and the month display is arranged elsewhere. The calendar information is scattered and fragmented: ’31st’, ‘Monday’, ‘ January’. Of course, all of this information can be found on the dial, but it does not conform to the usual narrative order.
Blancpain Modern Retro Hunting Watch & mdash; & mdash; for the father who knows life
Blancpain’s Villeret two-year calendar watch completely revolutionizes the arrangement of the past. All calendar information is displayed on the right side of the dial and is arranged in the customary narrative order. From top to bottom, it is the week, date and month.
In addition to designing the calendar display based on commonly used narrative logic, this model also has a very convenient annual calendar function. In terms of functionality, the annual calendar function is basically equivalent to the perpetual calendar function, and it can automatically identify months with 30 days. Therefore, with the exception of February, regardless of whether the number of days in the month is 30 or 31 days, the annual calendar can automatically change to the first day of the following month after the end of the last day of the month. This function is derived from the perpetual calendar function. The only difference from the perpetual calendar is that the newly introduced annual calendar watch does not recognize the year of the girl, which also allows the perpetual calendar watch to maintain its unique and irreplaceable status. Therefore, after the last day of February each year, the watch wearer needs to manually adjust the calendar to March 1. In addition, the function of the annual calendar watch is almost no different from that of the perpetual calendar watch.
Although you need to manually adjust the calendar every February, it does not detract from the excellent performance of this Villeret two-year annual calendar watch. The reason is that the watch is also equipped with Blancpain’s original calendar adjustment device hidden under the lugs. At present, the calendar adjustment device commonly used in the industry is to use tools to press the recess on the side of the watch case. Blancpain uses an exclusive patented hidden calendar adjustment device, which can be adjusted by just pressing with your fingertips. Tune or set. At the end of February, the wearer no longer has to experience the hassle of finding a special tool for calibration, just press the adjuster hidden behind the lugs to adjust and complete the annual calendar setting until February of the following year. In addition, the adjustment device hidden under the lugs is more perfect than the dimple-shaped dimple adjustment devices that are usually located on the side of the watch case, which keeps the appearance of the case simple and clean.

As the name of the watch indicates, in addition to the annual calendar function, the watch also incorporates a dual time zone time indication mechanism. Following the traditional dial layout, they are the center hour, minute hand, and 24-hour small dial. By adjusting the hour in the center of the head, the time can be adjusted in units of one hour. At this moment, the indicator of 24 hours remains unchanged. This feature makes it easy to set the center time display to the new local time zone (assuming the wearer travels to another time zone and wants to adjust the watch to the new local time), while the small 24-hour dial remains The time of residence is displayed. The thoughtful design not only makes it easy for travelers to read the local time, but also knows the original home time.
A keen watch expert must have this question in his mind at this time: ‘If local time will cross midnight, how will the calendar change? & quot ;. Generally speaking, the complex annual calendar structure cannot be turned counterclockwise. Presumably players who love the art of diamond watch development will ask another question: & quot; If the local time is not adjusted forward, but adjusted counterclockwise to return to midnight, How will the calendar change? & quot;
These issues are not only related to the complexity of the combination of the annual calendar function and the time indication function of the two places when the movement is designed, but also to show that a practical timepiece is an excellent companion for travel. Similarly, a well-designed travel watch should show the local time with the center hand and the local date at the same time. In this way, when the wearer travels to other time zones, the watch can be used as a truly useful timekeeping tool, because the information that travelers usually want to know first is the local time and date. Blancpain’s Villeret series, Leman series dual time zone time indication watches, and models such as Leman and L-evolution R & eacute; veil are all designed to have the same date as the time The same goes for watches). The date display of these models is synchronized with the local time. If the local time is moved forward or backward to midnight, the date will be automatically adjusted forward or backward.
When the date indicator becomes part of a calendar’s complication, such as an annual calendar, making the date automatically adjust to local time is a great challenge. As a matter of common sense, it is quite difficult to combine the complex calendar indicating function with the two-time indicating function. If it is also necessary to synchronize the local time indication with the complex calendar indication, that is to say, when the local time is adjusted backwards, the calendar mechanism must also rotate counterclockwise, which is indeed more difficult.

How difficult is it? Before the launch of this new Villeret watch by Blancpain, no model with both an annual calendar and dual time zone time indication was available on the market, and the technology of linking the annual calendar with local time was difficult to see. general. Other brands have introduced models combining annual calendars with dual time zone time indications, but in order to avoid technical difficulties in adjusting the calendar back and forth, usually the annual calendar mechanism will not be linked with the dual time zone mechanism (local time), only simplified to The date of residence is displayed, and of course the annual calendar cannot be adjusted to match the local time. Blancpain created the world’s first Villeret two-year annual calendar watch. Through the calendar mechanism and local time in the dual time zone mechanism, it provides extraordinary skills that can adjust the date back and forth.
The Villeret Dual Time Annual Calendar is a travel watch that uses a self-winding dual barrel movement that provides a 72-hour power reserve, adding to its practicality. The gold-plated hammer with hand-embossed Newsaw pattern contrasts with the hand-decorated movement. Through the sapphire crystal back cover, the exquisite mystery of the movement can be seen.
As a new member of the Villeret series, of course, the dial of the new card-shaped pattern of the watch must not lack the Roman numerals in gold, which perfectly echoes the case of the same color with a diameter of 40 mm. It is available in white and rose gold select
