For a long time, Blancpain regards elegant classicism and the pursuit of exquisite craftsmanship as a true high-level watchmaking value. The brand new Villeret series big date retrograde week watch is a reinterpretation of the brand. Then, let’s take a look at watch 6668-1127-55B.
The thickness of the 40mm diameter white dial is 11.1mm. What’s more, this round dial has no second markers ring, which makes the dial simple but adds difficulty to distinguish time when needed.
Silver Roman markers are silver, which seem more clean. The large candler fan shaped window is located at 8 o’clock. While the date display window stays between 5 o’clock and 6 o’clock, which is more funny and is unique for other styles. The willow hour and minute hands is obvious with the thin second hand.
The stainless steel case has the fine polished and design. With the small crown, the watch seems fashion and gentle. And this watch has the sapphire crystal back, which is clear and shows the function of the machine.
It is worth mentioning that week and date display can be switched instantaneously at midnight. Retrograde week will be subtly retrograde from Sunday to Monday to start a new week. Big Date Retrograde Weekly watch features exclusive hidden adjustment button of Blancpain. Located behind the lugs, it maximizes the aesthetic appeal of watch.
And the length of the lugs is about 22mm, which can ensure the wide leather strap to match wrist. The brand has the special perspective on shade selection. The silver white with the black is the classical combination when compare with other color blending group.
Black crocodile leather strap with alzavel calfskin inner. In order to offer more comfortable experience, the watch take this join, which is soft and luxury. It is more refined and formal under the decoration of the same color stitching and natural cracks. The folding watch buckle is also stainless steel, which make it easier to wear.

Except the stainless steel style, there is a 18 K rose gold type can be chosen. As we all know, stainless steel seems smart and modern, while rose gold can reflect femininity and charm. In my opinion, the stainless suit the formal occasion, and the rose gold can meet the need for leisure time. But all the choice depend on personal preference of people. And the brand offers metal chain band or leather strap for customers to provide comfortable experience.
