Blancpain reveals the Villeret Grande Decoration watch

First published: 16-05-2011

Fashion watch enthusiasts who are after a device that is simple in design yet elegant in appearance may want to check out an effort by Blancpain.

The watchmaker's Villeret Grande Decoration timepiece looks to achieve both feats, thanks in part to its pure dial design.

Coming with a domed grand feu enamelled setting, the dial features plenty of white space, decorated only by 12 enamel hourmarkers, two hands splashed in rose gold and the Blancpain logo at the 12 o'clock position.

Other features of this timepiece include a 45mm rose-gold case and a transparent case-back, which allows a glimpse into the inner workings of the device.

Watch fans may also want to check out the Leman Quantieme Perpetuel Flyback ticker from Blancpain, after it recently received a glowing 67 out of 100 review by the Watch Observer.

The source was particularly impressed with how the timepiece's paint job, slightly powdered white dial and polished markers are "all very delicately executed with beautiful technique".
