Villeret One-Minute Flying Tourbillon 12 Days Automatic Platinum by Blancpain
The "Villeret One-Minute Flying Tourbillon 12 Days Automatic Platinum" (reference 66240-3431-55b) is a watch from Blancpain's "Villeret" range of watches. The Watch features a dial in white grand feu enamel and is housed in a platinum case. This timepiece is suitable for men. The round case has a diameter of 42mm, a height of 11.7mm and is waterproof up to approximately 30 meters water depth (3 bar). The transparent case back makes it possible to admire the movement.
The watch is driven by an automatically winding Blancpain 242 mechanical caliber running with a power reserve of 12 days and indicators for hours, minutes and seconds (off-centered). As regulating organ, the caliber has a flying tourbillon which causes the balance wheel and the escapement to rotate slowly. In the days of pocket watches, the tourbillon increased the accuracy of the watch by preventing the minute components from working in the same orientation for a prolonged period of time. Today, the mechanism mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The watch is worn with a black alligator leather strap with a platinum folding clasp.
