Here are two new absolutely gorgeous watches from Blancpain:

These graceful watches in white or red gold feature mother-of-pearl detailing, decentralized hour and minute counters (@ 6 o’clock), moon phase with diamond-stars, and calendar indicated by a star-tipped serpentine blue hand.  The calendar functions in a “retrograde” manner — meaning that the indicator hand “jumps” back to the first day of the month.   While of course it is easy to adore the diamond studded bezel (set with 40 diamonds), don’t overlook the diamond-topped crown as well.  A total of 2.021 carats!

On the back, the sapphire display back showcases a charming flower-shaped oscillating weight for the automatic mechanical movement (Blancpain calibre 2650RL).

A beautiful piece, available in choice of 36mm white or red gold case, fitted on a white leather strap.
