Blancpain Traditional Chinese Calendar

Unlike the more overt depictions by other watchmakers, Blancpain elects to keep things subtle with its tribute to the loyal, generous dog. There is a dog on the dial, occupying the XII marker, but it blends into the classic Villeret design. This is then given a twist by having subdials that display Chinese calender indications, rendered in Chinese characters, with elements for double-hour numerals, days, months, leap months, moon phases, signs of the zodiac, elements and the ten celestial stems. It’s restrained enough to be elusive and elegant, but owners of the 20 limited edition pieces will know that the true prize is on the back, where a hound guards a caseback housing the intricate self-winding Calibre 3638.
