Blancpain unveils dazzling Ladybird watch collection

Blancpain has released The Ladybird collection of feminine watches to add another fine range to its long history of ladies’ watches stretching back to 1930.

The Ladybird Colors – lilac, peacock green, forest green, turquoise and midnight blue – feature on Roman numerals as part of the textured mother-of-pearl dial which is set with 70 diamonds. With two new small seconds and moon phase complications, by playing with colour combinations Blancpain has added a vibrancy to its collection, and variations of these colours are picked up on the straps of red or white gold models.

The ultra-elegant and colourful nature of these timepieces comes with jewellery designed to bring out mechanical watchmaking at its finest. Their individuality is underlined by the offset Roman numerals which are underscored by an inner ring adorned with delicately tapering gemsetting that is also on the small seconds and moon-phase indicators. At a diameter of 34.9 mm, the case of the new Ladybird Colors models contains diamonds amounting to more than two carats. This is high-end gemsetting in which each parameter is hand-adjusted.

These watches tick gently to the beat of Calibre 1163 for the small seconds version and Calibre 1163L for the moon-phase iteration. Endowed with a four-day power reserve and a silicon balance spring, they are designed to keep track of daily life with a blend of accuracy, comfort and style.
