Blancpain Saint-Valentin 2015: A rose to say I love you

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Blancpain has produced a special watch each year since 2001 to celebrate St Valentines Day. For 2015 Blancpain has created a limited edition feminine timepiece for that special someone that close to your heart.



The new Saint Valentines 2015 model has a mother-of-pearl dial decorated with a majestic inlaid rose, a technique which demonstrates the fine craftsmanship of the master watchmakers. The dial was meticulously worked, and each petal delicately sculpted into the white mother-of-pearl. The resulting rose in relief was then cut and dyed before being assembled on the dial.  The different thicknesses of  the mother-of-pearl allows the colour to show through, creating a subtle palette of pink shades.  There is something captivating about the inlaid rose on the dial




The 36.8 mm diameter white-gold case is lit up with 121 diamonds. The two intertwined rows of different-sized stones are reminiscent of the brand’s emblematic double-stepped bezel, while the
setting of the horn-shaped lugs and the crown complete the ensemble. At the heart of this original
two-hand model is an off-center hour movement, the signature complication of the Women collection.




On the back of the watch, the pink mother-of-pearl inlaid on the oscillating weight echoes the dial’s design.  A white ostrich leather strap with deployant clasp completes the watch.

A limited edition of  only 14 pieces, engraved and numbered.
