BLANCPAIN Villeret "Timezone 30 minutes Demi-Savonette"
The Blancpain manufacture began the re-interpretation of its Villeret collection last year and continues with the exclusive presentation of its first Half-Hour Time Zone watch. This enables travellers to countries like India or Venezuela, where there is a half-hour time zone, to be as punctual as anywhere else! A veritable complication, this timepiece is still quite simple to use as all the adjustments are made by using the crown. The reference time is given at 12 o'clock and its day/night indicator at 9, the half-hour time zone and the seconds in the centre. The date changes with the second time and the date change or time zone indicator is shown at 4. Travelling has never been easier!
