Blancpain’s Villeret Quantième Complet GMT Watch Is A Classic Christmas Gift
December 4, 2018 | BY Hong Kong Tatler
Upgrade your loved one’s watch game this Christmas by giving them Blancpain’s Villeret Quantième Complet GMT. A masterful marriage of traditional design and modern innovation, this classic timepiece is an ideal gift for any discerning watch-lover.
Blancpain’s complete calendar moonphase timepieces have been a much-loved signature of the house since the 1980s, with this fresh update introducing a multitude of useful new elements that add even more clever details.
The 40mm diameter Villeret Quantième Complet GMT displays the day of the week and month in small windows at the 12 o’clock position, along with a charming moon phase indicator at the 6 o’ clock position, whilst the date can be read using the dial’s blued serpentine hand.
Most impressive, however, is the addition of the GMT function–making this a perfect choice for anyone who travels frequently, or works across two different time zones. If you need to keep track of two different time zones, simply use the red arrow-tipped hand to indicate your home time with the 24-hour display, whilst adjusting the main gold leaf-shaped hands to show the local time.
Changing the time could not be easier, thanks to the timepiece’s nifty under-lug correctors. This means that rather than needing to carry a special tool to set the time, you can simply use the watch’s crown to adjust it with your fingertips, with the calendar indicators automatically linked to synchronise with the home time display.
These correctors have also been carefully hidden to create a sleeker, more streamlined design. Meanwhile, Villeret Quantième Complet GMT’s movement boasts a silicium balance spring, along with exceptional anti-magnetic and timing precision properties and a water resistance of 30 metres, making this an ever-reliable and accurate time-keeping companion.
This innovation doesn’t come at the cost of beautiful design either. The dial is clearly divided into several layers that define each calendar element, meaning it remains clean and easy to read despite the wealth of information displayed, with large applied Roman numerals and Villeret’s distinctive double-stepped bezel enhancing its timeless look.
To compliment the personal style of your gift’s lucky recipient even further, choose from 18ct red gold with an opaline dial and red gold Roman numerals or stainless steel with a white dial and white gold Roman numerals, paired with either a luxurious alligator leather strap or sophisticated metal bracelet.
Classy, convenient and exquisitely crafted, Blancpain’s Villeret Quantième Complet GMT watch is certain to impress–and built to last.
