Front view of Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet

This Quantième Complet displays a contrasting aesthetic of skilful scenographic design; the apertures, hands and moon phase on a blue, sunray dial form a creative canvas for that most useful of displays, the day, date and month. The timepiece associates cut-out leaf hands with a serpentine date hand.

The gently-curving moon phase appears and hides behind scrolling clouds. To retain the purity of the perfect circle of its 40 mm case, the correctors of the Quantième Complet are discreetly placed beneath the horns. A truly aesthetic complication of fine watchmaking, this gently poetic piece is destined for all collectors admiring of a tradition capable of renewal and reinvention.
