    Blancpain Blancpain Villeret Full Moon Phase Half Hunting Watch 6664

    The ultimate ideal of ‘the creator of classic timepieces’ is to present and even shape the cognition of time with a watch. Blancpain’s brilliance is attributed to its insistence on digging the connotation of time as the starting point, through the exploration and release of mechanical aesthetics, and finally returning to the wearer’s position. Blancpain’s full-calendar moon phase is exactly the embodiment of this idea, and it has become the ‘most classic moon phase watch’.
       Moon phases, ancient times. It used to appear on various timepieces either as a single function or in combination with single and double calendars. It wasn’t until Blancpain creatively combined it with the tri-calendar that the moonphase watch really gained internal, systematic life. Because in the current universal timing system, the moon itself is the decisive force. Based on its operation, the three concepts and units of the week, month, and day have been formed to help us distinguish and master time.
       Therefore, the moon phase is the trader behind the ‘time’. The time is derived from the running of the sun and the moon. Without the sun and the moon, there is no time. Blancpain believes that when the moon phase appears on the dial, the three calendars should be in charge, and one can only be called the most classic moon phase watch. In the quartz storm of the 1980s, Blancpain became the first brand to combine the full calendar with the moon phase in modern times, and the full calendar moon phase was also considered by future generations to guide the traditional mechanical watchmaking industry, highlighting the encirclement banner. The Blancpain moon phase watch is not only a classic moon phase, but also contains industry sentiment.

       The hidden way is a wonderful expectation: the time on the wrist is complete, the details of the craftsmanship are perfect, and the years of life have no regrets.
       So far, Blancpain has developed a rich and complete family of moon phases in the industry, covering three major categories: classic moon phases, complex moon phases, and women’s moon phases. Today, let’s admire another classic of the Blancpain Villeret series full-calendar moon phase watch 6664.
    A Moon Phase with a Story: Half Hunting Tradition
       The hunting watch is a member of the pocket watch family. Generally, it is equipped with a cover to protect the mirror. To facilitate reading time, the hunting watch with the upper mirror removed is called a ‘half hunting watch’. According to legend, the first half-hunting watch was made by Napoleon. In the French-Austrian war, eager to watch the time, he cut off the upper cover of the pocket watch with a sword. More than a hundred years later, this watch designed by Blancpain master who followed the ‘origin’ of the semi-hunting watch also has a strong classic pocket watch style.

       Of course, in addition to the attractive historical complex, the semi-hunting watch is equipped with a rose gold hunting case on the transparent case back, which also adds details that can be played and recalled by the wearer.
    Perfect profile
       Some people say that Blancpain has the most perfect side of the watch world, and its DNA is mostly on the side. Blancpain’s surface is slightly curved. In order to take into account practical needs, the angle of the lugs and the contour edges are extremely detailed. Not only does it look very full, it extends slightly to the bottom. It is very comfortable and comfortable to wear. In addition, an anti-glare coating is made on the mirror surface, which can still be read accurately under strong light.

    Double dial

    Blancpain’s ‘signature’ aesthetic style, smart sun dial
       The 6664 semi-hunting watch still continues Blancpain’s ‘signature’ aesthetic style of 6654-willow-shaped hands, round double-layer bezel, uneven Roman time scales, blue steel snake hands. The entire disk is visually gentle and soft, with a balanced and beautiful layout. The month and the week window are centered and symmetrical, echoing the six-pointed and slightly magical moon face, which is unforgettable at a glance.
       However, what distinguishes the two at a glance is the carefully treated radial sunburst decoration on the dial, which exudes a slightly shiny and delicate texture, which is a bit more agile than 6654 and is more suitable for younger ones. Wearer.

    Cal.6654 stable and powerful movement
       The 6664 self-winding movement Cal.6654 is one of Blancpain’s proud self-made movements. It has 2 barrels, which ensures a 72-hour power reserve and a balance wheel vibration frequency of 28800 times / hour. . The movement supports full-calendar moon phase function and is waterproof to 30 meters.
    Pointer way
       Blancpain willow leaf-shaped hollow hands are widely praised in the industry for their elegant, one-touch arcs, and they are even better known as the ‘first needle in the world’. The hour and minute hands are already slim, but they are hollowed out to make them lighter and lighter; the second hand is the thinnest and the longest, and if it is thin, the end is marked with ‘JB’ to prevent it from being too light. One release and one close, there are some differences. The top of a snake-shaped blue-steel pointer is treated with ‘curved arcs’ and fits just inside the date circle. Its fresh blue and zigzag shape not only adds a vivid touch to the main surface of rose gold, but also makes reading time more efficient. The four slender pointers are of different lengths, staggered and stacked, and are quite three-dimensional. The brand’s ‘JB’ logo is consistent, and the details hide Blancpain’s respect and nostalgia for traditional craftsmanship.

    Exquisite craftsmanship details
       From the outside to the inside of the dial, the brand’s unique Roman scale hour markers are by no means a simple print. Its smooth polishing and grinding, the thick texture of the precious metal material, and the middle waist design make the shape three-dimensional and shining. The calendar circle is slightly lower than the other parts of the dial, forming a slight depression. Similarly, the month and week windows also use a progressive depression method, which increases the technical difficulty for the watchmaker, but makes the visuals richer and more textured.

    Meticulous polishing

       In addition to perfectly showing the luster of the visible parts such as the case, buckle, and scale, for Blancpain, meticulous sanding will also occur inside, and even more attention is paid to those ‘invisible places’.
       The polishing of Blancpain’s movement fully reflects the brand’s excellence. The watchmakers have carefully polished the inner corners and outer corners of each tiny part, and the inner and outer edges without exception. Many places can see extremely complicated chamfering grinding technology. . The chamfering grinding process is very particular about the grinding force of the craftsman. Excessive force will cause deformation of the part, and insufficient strength will cause the angle to be inconspicuous and unclear.
       The back of the 6664 18K rose gold half-hunter bottom cover is mirror-finished with metal polishing technology. The laminated pattern with polished internal fish scales is delicate and soft. The bottom cover and the edge of the back shell are closely stitched to bring an extremely comfortable wearing experience. At 3 o’clock, the bottom cover lifts up, and the whole movement has a clear view. Through the sapphire back, you can see the brilliant light of the guilloche pattern blooming.
    Original technology
       Based on the practicality of watch wearers, Blancpain’s watchmakers have developed a unique functional design through imagination, research and development, fine-tuning and patent application.

       -Hidden adjustment device: In order to better present the simple aesthetics, Blancpain invented the invention of hiding the adjuster under the lugs to achieve the watch’s clean and rounded line shape. The wearer does not need professional tools, and only needs to lightly touch the fingertip to complete the adjustment process.
       -Security protection adjustment system: In the past, the fast-adjusting calendar function should be avoided as much as possible from 9 pm to 3 am the next day, because the watch’s calendar mechanism is operating at this time, and the adjustment is likely to damage the movement. Blancpain’s safety adjustment and protection system can lock the fast adjustment function during this period, even if it is mistakenly operated, it will not cause any damage to the movement.
       -Long Power: In order to facilitate the use of the wearer, Blancpain has been working hard to extend the power of the Moon Phase Watch. It is the first brand to achieve long power in the full moon phase function.
    Probably the most mysterious moon face

       The moon phase function can be described as the first golden supporting role in the watch industry, and it is also one of the most striking features. As a pioneer in reviving the moon phase, Blancpain not only popularized this function into each of its watch series, but also continued to innovate in the design of the moon phase, and strived to make the moon phase more charming and touching. Contrasting Blancpain’s moon phase expressions in different periods, the moon face carried in 6664 set his eyes to the side, revealing that the charm to be said is still the most mysterious moon phase watch.
