Blancpain’s New Carrousel Question And Answer Sheet
Few watch factories in the world can launch the complex technology of the minute repeater watch, among which there are only a handful of brands capable of producing self-made minute repeater movements. Since the late 1980s, Blancpain has developed two unique minute repeater movements that have focused on and continue to develop. In 2010, Blancpain added a third movement-‘Le Brassus minute repeater’ with ultra-high technology.
Blancpain’s original technology is clearly visible in this minute repeater. The minute repeater has a church bell ringing device, which means that the timepiece sound will be long and deep. After the device rotates around the movement for one and a half times, it will play a full and pleasant sound. For watchmakers, transmitting sound through the case’s starting mechanism has always been a severe test. Blancpain watch overcomes the difficult technology and hides the church bell bell in the exquisite case. Its volume and clarity are the masterpieces of choice for watchmaking. In addition, in order to highlight the performance of the three-question function, Blancpain specially developed a unique floating tuning device for this movement, and the movement runs more smoothly and naturally.
The minute repeater has always been regarded as a very fragile and easily damaged treasure. Whenever the repeater asks, if the player wants to adjust the time, the movement may be damaged due to various circumstances. Blancpain’s new work resolves this situation. When adjusting the crown, the three-minute mechanism and the drive connection of the crown will be automatically interrupted to reduce the risk of damage to the movement. This time, the details should not be underestimated. In order to show its meticulous and sophisticated technology, the watch’s rose gold plywood and bottom plate are especially hand-crafted.
The brand new Le Brassus timepiece is equipped with Blancpain’s one-minute floating carrousel, which was created two years ago. This technology has set a number of records in the history of the table, including the world’s first floating carrousel and the world’s first One minute Carrousel, and the world’s first carrousel minute repeater with a power reserve of 100 hours. Blancpain combines Carrousel with the minute repeater technology. The new Le Brassus minute repeater dial has a size of 45mm, with a rose gold case, a brushed white gold dial, and rose gold digital hour markers. The new watch’s open dial center and sapphire crystal back cover clearly appreciate the chic and intricate art of the minute repeater device, as well as the carving of the movement’s splint.
