PLAY­FUL TEASER

Prestige Indonesia - - Agenda -

Blanc­pain’s Villeret Valen­tine’s Day 2018 model is fit­ted with a vivid red al­li­ga­tor leather strap and is avail­able in a lim­ited edi­tion of 99 in­di­vid­u­ally en­graved and num­bered watches. The back­drop for the dial is a mother-of-pearl sky sprin­kled with 19 di­a­monds and four ru­bies, all bril­liant-cut and se­cured us­ing the “star-set­ting” tech­nique. For the first time in the Blanc­pain col­lec­tions, the sap­phire moon phase has been placed at a slop­ing an­gle at 6 o’clock. It is adorned with a slen­der bor­der and the open­ing fea­tures a softly rounded shape. This moon with its un­mis­tak­ably fem­i­nine face is an amus­ing nod to his­tory, since the ar­ti­fi­cial “beauty spot”, known as a mouche for its sim­i­lar­ity to a fly ap­pear­ing at the cor­ner of its smil­ing mouth, was re­garded in 18th cen­tury France as sym­bol­is­ing a play­fully teas­ing at­ti­tude.
