Villeret Moon Phases Carrousel Red Gold by Blancpain
The "Villeret Moon Phases Carrousel Red Gold" (ref. 6622l-3631-55b) is a watch from Blancpain's "Villeret" collection. The Watch features a dial in white grand feu enamel and is encased in a red gold case. This watch is designed for men. The round case is 42mm in diameter, 12.7mm high and waterproof up to 3 bar (approximately 30 m water depth). The transparent case back makes it possible to admire the movement.
The watch is driven by an automatically winding Blancpain 225L mechanical caliber which has a power reserve of 120 hours and displays for hours, minutes and seconds (off-centered). The calendar shows date and moon phase. As regulating organ, the caliber makes use of a flying caroussel, which works very much like a tourbillon, but it was designed to circumvent Breguet's orignal patent. Like a tourbillon, the caroussel lets the balance wheel and the escapement rotate slowly to avoid effects of the watches position and gravity on the time keeping. Today, the complication mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The timepiece is fitted with a brown alligator leather strap with a red gold folding clasp.
