On Valentines day, don’t forget to become romantic and generous to your beautiful partner. A gift from Blancpain’s limited edition Saint-Valentin 2012 Watch would be perfect for the occasion. The watch with 18-carat gold 36 mm casing and mother-of-pearl dial is literally a visual stunner. The dial which features marquetry motif with eight diamond hour markers will have the ladies swooning. The bezel and lugs are embellished with a single row of diamonds, while the caseband is set with four diamonds and a heart-shaped ruby.
The heart-shaped counterweight of the central sweep seconds hand is delicately hand-painted with a feather to create a distinctive convex shape. The three white mother-of-pearl heart registers include the seconds shown on a subdial at 6 o’clock, the elapsed minutes at 3 o’clock and the elapsed hours at 9 o’clock. The date appears through an oval aperture at 12 o’clock.
The sapphire crystal case back reveals a self-winding Calibre F185 flyback chronograph movement. The crown is set with a diamond and the two pushers are set with cabochon-cut rubies. The first pusher at 2 o’clock starts and stops the chronograph, while the other pusher at 4 o’clock handles the flyback function.
Available exclusively at Blancpain boutiques, the Saint-Valentin Chronograph comes fitted with a white exotic leather strap, and can be presented in a wooden box lined with white nappa leather. The Blancpain Saint-Valentin 2012 Watch will be available in limited edition of only 14 pieces, each set with 2.95 carats of precious stones, so we suggest you grab it while you can. [Blancpain]
