Villeret Quan­tième Com­plet GMT

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

Blanc­pain's com­plete cal­en­dar GMT com­pli­ca­tion es­tab­lished it­self as a main­stay with its orig­i­nal de­but in 2002. For Basel­world 2018, the Man­u­fac­ture rein­ter­prets this prac­ti­cal com­pli­ca­tion and brings it back with the new Quan­tième Com­plet GMT en­hanced with Blanc­pain's patented un­der lug cor­rec­tors. The in-house move­ment now fea­tures a sili­cium bal­ance spring with its su­pe­rior anti-mag­netic and tim­ing pre­ci­sion prop­er­ties. Set­ting of all the cal­en­dar and moon phase in­di­ca­tions with a fin­ger-tip, in­stead of the stan­dard tool, is made pos­si­ble with the ex­clu­sive un­der-lug cor­rec­tors. An added ben­e­fit, the hid­den cor­rec­tors en­able com­pletely smooth case flanks un­marred by cor­rec­tor dim­ples, com­monly found in the watch world. Rapid ad­just­ment of lo­cal time in one-hour in­cre­ments is ac­com­plished via the crown. There are two ver­sions of the new Quan­tième Com­plet GMT, in red gold with an opa­line dial and ap­plied red gold Ro­man in­dexes; and in stain­less steel with a white dial and white gold ap­plied Ro­man in­dexes. Both are fit­ted into 40 mm di­am­e­ter cases with the tra­di­tional Villeret dou­ble stepped bezel. Al­li­ga­tor straps or metal bracelets are avail­able for each.
