You do not often see mechanical watches with an indication for the number of the week. This Blancpain Villeret Semainier Grande Date 8 Jours does. A large blued serpentine hand shows the number of the week indicated by a chapter ring going from 1 to 53. As a year has not exactly 52 weeks. At the 6 o’clock position is a large date in two apertures and at 9 o’clock are the days of the week.
This new model within the classic Villeret collection is quite nifty: a subtle dress watch with extra functionality. The white enamel dial contrast perfectly with the soft red gold case, a classic recipe for this kind of watches. The chapter ring and logo are enamel painted.
The Blancpain Villeret Semainier Grande Date 8 Jours has a power-reserve of 8 days
The case of the Blancpain Villeret Semainier Grande Date 8 Jours has a diameter of 42 millimeters with a double-stepped bezel. The back of the case features sapphire glass to show the Blancpain caliber 3738G2 with a power-reserve of 8 days (192 hours). Which is why the movement has three mainspring barrels. And it is hand-finished. The winding rotor is from gold with a honeycomb guilloché pattern. At the side of the case, at 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock, there are correctors to adjust the day of the week and week of the year. The crown adjusts the large date, hour and minutes.
