To celebrate love, Blancpain unveils a jewelry timepiece inspired by a cocktail watch once owned by Marilyn Monroe. This aptly graceful model is symbolically issued in a 14-piece limited edition.

For Blancpain, Valentine’s Day is a celebration, which every year witnesses the creation of a limited series of feminine timepieces dedicated to love. A veritable jewel, the 2020 edition is inspired by a stunning Blancpain evening watch once owned by the inimitable Marilyn Monroe. Its rectangular white-gold Art Deco-style case is set with 84 diamonds, sometimes in superposed rows, including two generous marquise-cut gems; while its mother-of-pearl dial, inlaid with two hearts, is adorned with two brilliant-cut diamonds and two precious butterflies made of diamond and ruby hearts. The beauty of this timepiece also lies in its rectangular caliber 510, a major new addition to the Blancpain collection. The curves of the latter, along with the symmetry between its balance-wheel and its barrel lend both delicacy and visual equilibrium to this two-tone mechanical movement, while the chamfered finish of its bridges adds a soft and light touch.

Issued in a 14-piece limited edition, the special “Valentine’s Day 2020” watch is available with a calf leather strap secured by a pin buckle set with a brilliant-cut diamond. This dazzling timepiece perfectly embodies the spirit of Blancpain: since 1930, the manufacture has been convinced that women are eminently capable of appreciating the expertise and magic of mechanical watchmaking.
