Blancpain Unveils Ultra-Slim Ladybird Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

Swiss watchmakers Blancpain has added to its rich heritage of women’s watches by creating an ultra-thin version of its Ladybird timepiece.

The new model builds on the Ladybird legacy that dates back to 1956, when the first Blancpain Ladybird was introduced, featuring what was at the time the smallest round mechanical movement ever created.

Since that inaugural model, Blancpain has frequently refreshed the Ladybird, with new movements being launched over the years in both manual winding and automatic winding versions.

The latest Ladybird features a mother-of-pearl dial set with diamonds and rubies, a white gold case and bezel set with diamonds on a black satin bracelet, as well as an optional charm that the owner can choose to include if they wish.

The sapphire display back showcases the self-winding manufacture caliber 6150 of 15.70 mm diameter.

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