There is a long story about love between Baolan BLANCPAIN and women, and this story is about to start a new chapter. Bao Bao, which has always attached importance to the development of women’s watches, has set Valentine’s Day as a major holiday on the brand’s calendar in recent years. Each year, a new limited edition women’s watch is specially created for this warm and romantic day. In 2016, there will be another lovely ladybird.
Gorgeous female watches in the 1950s
In 1956, the treasure platinum women’s watch series was born gorgeously. Among them, the noble bird watch was the most iconic and was the smallest round watch in the world at that time. Once the watch was launched, its small, exquisite, smooth and lightweight appearance made it stand out. On the most romantic days of the year, the elegant chic lady is undoubtedly the focus of everyone’s attention.
For this meaningful romantic festival, Blancpain specially created a beautiful shape decorated with bright-cut diamonds embellished with a mother-of-pearl faceplate, and finely inlaid mother-of-pearl, showing the beautiful mood of ‘at first sight (arrow)’ . In the upper part of the heart shape, the light of diamonds and rubies intersect, which is definitely the finishing touch on the faceplate.
Exquisite and compact on the wrist
The new 2016 Valentine’s Day Limited Watch is equipped with a 21.5 mm white gold case and a dazzling bezel set with more than 0.5 carats of diamonds. In the center of this new two-hand watch model, the 6150 self-winding movement with a diameter of 15.7 millimeters: this is one of the smallest movements in the world and is equipped with a silicon spring.
The 6 o’clock position of the watch is embellished with a love heart shot by Cupid’s arrow, which symbolizes the emotional moment of ‘seeing (arrow) love’. This fascinating detachable platinum charm was first unveiled at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Fair 2015. It is specially designed for the Lady Bird watch and consists of a heart-shaped ruby and a pointed diamond. The watch owner can place it at 12 o’clock or 6 o’clock.
The Ladybird 2016 Valentine’s Day watch is equipped with a calfskin strap, limited to 99 pieces, each engraved with a unique limited number.
