Blancpain Villeret Skeleton 8 Days

Blancpain unveiled its new Villeret Skeleton 8 days this week at Baselworld and not surprisingly the response has been very positive. I mean, look at it!

As you can see in the photos the attention to detail in the new Villeret Skeleton 8 days is nothing short of astonishing.
Housed in a 38mm white gold case, the manual wind Blancpain Calibre 1333SQ, which boasts an incredible 8-day or 192 hour power reserve, has been completely skeletonized and hand-decorated to the highest degree on both the front and back.

Admittedly the Villeret Skeleton 8 days is a little on the small side but I have to say the finished product is a stunning visual treat for the observer, providing a gentle reminder that relatively simplistic traditional techniques can still produce truly breathtaking results.
