History
Blancpain, a subsidiary of the Swatch Group, is the creator of the Blancpain 1735, one of the most complicated mechanical watches ever made. The company sponsors several Motorsports program, including the Blancpain Sprint Series, Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series, Reiter Engineering’s GT1 and GT3 cars, Blancpain Endurance series, and ADAC GT Masters.

Design
The classic Blancpain Villeret Ultraplate 6651-1127-55B showcases a round polished stainless steel case with a diameter of 40 mm. This watch is ultra-thin and has a thickness of just 8.7 mm. The flat two tired white dial is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal that renders the watch shatter proof. Stylized Roman numerals in appliqued polished steel mark the hours. You can view the date in the date window, which is situated near the 3 o’ clock position.
Leaf shaped skeletonised hour and minute hands in polished stainless steel and the seconds’ needle, give the watch a refined appearance. The watch is triple signed at the dial, crown, and the buckle. You can observe the intricate movements of the watch as it features a transparent caseback. The alzavel lined black alligator leather straps have a folding deployant clasp at the end, which makes it easy to secure.

Features
The timepiece is powered by the Blancpain Caliber 1151, which beats at 21,600 vph, and contains 28 jewels. It has an approximate power reserve of 100 hours, which ensures that you will not have to wind the watch even if you don’t wear it for some days. The watch will not get damaged due to accidental splashes of water, as it is water resistant up to 30 metres.

Ambassadors
Blancpain is endorsed by some eminent personalities like Azzedine Alaia, Vladimir Kramnik, Francis Ford Coppola, Philippe Rochat, Guy Savoy, Patrick Rambaud, and Nicolas G. Hayek.

Popular Models

One of the most recent contributions to the Villeret family is the Villeret 8 Day with Grand Feu Enamel Dial, a happy addition to the 2014 collection. This model boasts of an in-house Blancpain movement (Calibre 1335) with a full 8 day power reserve. Grand Feu is an extremely stable material which helps showcase the watches strengthened ties with tradition. The enamel is made by layering pigments and repeatedly firing at high temperatures. In this case, the hour-markers are painted in enamel while construction and not on the enamel as is usually the norm. This ensures that the enamel set paint does not wear off with time as is wont to happen in other watches. The new collection also features a distinctive JB logo engraved in between the IV and V, VII and VIII. As the tale goes, this is a shared secret signature that enamellists have been using traditionally to initial their works.

The Chronograph Pulsometre is the newest feature in the Blancpain Villeret bonnet. This technology consists of a pioneer self-winding movement that beats at a never-before 36,000 vibrations per hour (5 Hz) and is also equipped with a flyback chronograph function. The Pulsometre function bestows to the watch medical expertise by making it possible to display the wearer’s heart beat directly on the dial. The chronograph which is connected to specially graduated scale needs to be started to be able to check one's heart rate.

Blancpain is a premier swiss brand with a rich heritage of watchmaking with extreme finesse and craftsmanship.the company founded in 1735 as a family business, is the oldest amongst swiss brands (breguet and vacheron constantin are in the same league though ).the company produced 2 lakhs watches in a year from 1930s to 1950s but during the quartz era , the family business wasn't flourishing and the company had to shut down.it was Jean Claude biver , the present ceo of hublot ,who played the pivotal role in re introducing the brand.
from the late 1990s to 2003 the brand regained it's image introducing a genre of models with perfect craftsmanship.

The villeret series is a memoir of the native place of blancpain. The brand was first introduced by Jehan Jacques Blancpain in 1735 at Villeret .the series consists of four horological marvels Of which the ultra plate is showcased here. The ultra plate is the entry level of the villeret series featuring a ultra thin stainless steel case of just 8.7mm thick(imagine just 8 sheets of paper) with a top notch calibre 1151 self winding movement made entirely by hand with all intricate details of swiss watchmaking.the roman numerals on the white dial is a mark of simplicity and elegance. The calibre is a 28 jewels self winding movement With a date feature.Feature wise this movement is not something worth mentioning but it's impressive 100 hrs power reserve is quite remarkable (never obtained in a self winding movement) The 40 mm case is moderately sized maintain the heritage enhanced with a 21mm black alligator strap and a double lock clasp.
30m water resistance ensures that the watch is safe from minor water impacts such as rain or wash.not recommended for dining and swimming etc.


Overall verdict :At a price of 6 lakh you get a piece of watch making history and a classic timepiece with impressive power reserve of 100hrs (can be compared to a quartz movement )but if you are looking for feature rich watches, then check out other brands.
