Each time Blancpain cooperates with the Monaco Yacht Show represents a new opportunity to proudly unveil a unique model of the finest creations in its collection. Characterised by a resolutely contemporary design, this exclusive timepiece offers sea-lovers a chance to associate their passion for the luxury maritime world with the refinement of Haute Horlogerie.
Produced in a limited numbered series of 150, this unique watch is distinguished by the Monaco coat of arms adorning its ebony black dial and by a full case-back engraved with the legendary Monaco lighthouse. Combining modern elegance with a discreetly sporting appearance, the Léman Aqualung Monaco Yacht Show 2005 is a watch of great distinction that is entirely in line with the Léman collection, itself anchored at the heart of the love story between Blancpain and the sea. Each watch of this limited series will be delivered with a numbered portfolio on lighthouses illustrated and signed by the artist Jean-Benoît Héron.
Featuring a brushed steel case measuring 38 mm in diameter, complete with screwed crown and engraved case-back for guaranteed water resistance to 100 metres, the Léman Aqualung Monaco Yacht Show 2005 is worn on a black rubber strap with a folding clasp. A slender seconds hand with a red tip sweeps over the sunburst and circular satin-brushed ebony black dial graced with Arabic numerals at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock and with luminescent rhodium-plated hour-markers.
At the heart of this model, the 198 parts of Blancpain Calibre 6850, assembled and decorated by the Blancpain master-watchmakers, drive a mechanical self-winding movement with a 100-hour power reserve. In addition to the double date display, it also indicates the hours and minutes by means of central cone-shaped hands.
