2012 Sihh Blancpain Ultra-thin Retrograde Small Seconds Watch

At the annual Basel Watch Fair, Blancpain presents the Villeret series ultra-thin retrograde small seconds hand watch in advance. This watch’s dial is carved with retro radio waves. The paint (flinqu & eacute;) has a multi-layered transparent blue surface that imitates an unparalleled ocean depth effect. Blancpain uses a subtle balance rule to retain pure lines, and in combination with Blancpain’s most classic Villeret series watches, introduces this classic art method of original touch.

 Villeret ultra-thin retrograde small seconds watch with a case diameter of 40 mm, built-in ultra-thin movement 7663Q (total of 244 parts, 34 gem bearings), with a 3-day power reserve. This new automatic movement powers the hour, minute and central snake-shaped date hands, while the retrograde seconds hand appears at 6 o’clock on the dial. The hidden lugs behind the 5 o’clock position can realize the dream of quickly adjusting the date. Through the sapphire crystal case back, we can appreciate the hand-engraved aesthetics of the automatic oscillating weight and the mechanics of oscillation during this series of watches, giving you the ultimate beauty.

 This new Villeret ultra-thin retrograde small seconds watch is water-resistant to 30 meters. The alligator leather strap is paired with a soft and comfortable Alzavel lining. The color of the strap echoes the dial and is equipped with a folding buckle to ensure Comfort on the wrist.
