BLANCPAIN for Valentine's Day 2014
BLANCPAIN Valentine's Day 2014
It's since 2001 that BLANCPAIN celebrate women by creating, each year, a very special and limited edition of one of their timepieces dedicated to "those in love". And it is since 2001 that they 're doing it with a superb and...mechanical timepiece. That's why we are here to write about the BLANCPAIN Valentine's Day 2014:
We do love watches for her, we invented a column called Horbit-Her and edited by women, as is the undersigned. The BLANCPAIN Valentine's Day 2014 unifies two ideal worlds: the former is populated by those women who look for a jewel on their wrist that occasionally marks the time, the latter, by women that are asking for a mechanical timepiece, such is a men's high-end watch.
The first group will be delighted with the familiar round white gold BLANCPAIN case, 33mm wide, whose bezel is adorned with a row of diamonds. The dial, made out of mother-of-pearl, is embellished with 3 hearts, two engraved and a red transferred one, on which the hour, minute and seconds hands sweep, with the second hand carrying the BLANCPAIN logo: The second one will go for the case-back view, where a sapphire crystal enhances the BLANCPAIN caliber 1150, made in-house as all the calibers handcrafted are made in Le Brassus, just mechanical, as a renowned print ad claimed back in the years: “Never, since 1735, has there been a quartz in a BLANCPAIN watch. And there never will be.” sporting a 100 hrs power reserve out of a slim movement, an anti-magnetic balance spring as it is made out of Si14 and the final touch of a heart- shaped opening on the winding rotor:
The BLANCPAIN Valentine'S Day 2014 is being produced in just 99 pieces, rigorously hand made and is not that affordable. But it is not any timepiece, Valentine's day is just an excuse to add an eternal timepiece to your personal collection.
