Swiss luxury brand Blancpain shows once again that it understands what women want when it comes to timepieces with the release of the new Off-Center Hour watch.
The case is 36.8 mm in diameter and is made from red gold, with 108 diamonds totaling one carat scattered across it. Its mother-of-pearl dial is divided by a row of diamonds, with one side featuring an off-center hours and minutes subdial (the timepiece’s distinguishing feature), while the other side has the 30-second retrograde indication and the Blancplain signature. The dial is stylishly divided in two by a row of diamonds.
The movement is a 226-piece mechanical self-winding Calibre 2663SR, which beats at 28,800 vph, protected by a sapphire crystal case back bearing the Côtes de Genève (Geneva Stripes). The standard model comes with a delicate white ostrich strap, but there’s also a simpler, steel version with an alligator leather strap.
