Villeret Quantième Complet GMT
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.
