The Women Off-Centred Hour Timepiece by Blancpain

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watchmakers Blancpain have created a new addition to their range of ladies timepieces called the Women Off-Centred Hour.

Said to be one of the first self-winding wristwatches for women, the new timepiece boasts a 36.8mm red-gold case with two rows of 108 diamonds.

A mother-of-pearl dial is decorated with faceted diamonds while an off-centred hour and minutes dial at 12 o’clock is augmented with drop-shaped, cut-out hands. At 6 o’clock on the dial, there is a 30-second retrograde indication and the Blancpain signature just below.

Other notable features include a Blancpain Calibre 2663SR mechanical self-winding movement, a sapphire crystal case-back and a white ostrich leather strap with matching red-gold buckle.

The Women Off-Centred Hour timepiece is also available in a white gold model with a blue mother-of pearl dial or in steel with a white dial with additional strap selection

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