Blancpain Creates New Retrograde Calendar Timepiece for Women

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watch brand Blancpain have unveiled the latest addition to its collection of women’s timepieces.

Available in either red or white gold, the Retrograde Calendar watch boasts several impressive features including mother of pearl details, moon phase with stars crafted from diamonds, a star tipped serpentine blue hand indicating the calendar and decentralized minute and hour counters at the 6 o’clock position.

Perhaps the timepiece’s most impressive feature is its calendar, which works in a retrograde manner so that the indicator hand jumps back to the first day of the month when the previous month is complete.

Other notable elements include a bezel studded with 40 diamonds, a crown also set with diamonds, a 36 mm case complemented by a sapphire crystal display caseback, including an oscillating weight for the automatic mechanical movement shaped like a flower.

The watch also includes a Blancpain caliber 2650RL and white leather straps.

Blancpain was founded by Jehan-Jaques Blancpain in Switzerland in 1735.
