What Is It

Blancpain Ladybird Saint-Valentin

Blancpain adds to their Ladybird collection a special Valentine’s Day treat, the new 99-piece Blancpain Ladybird Saint-Valentin 2022 ref. 3660B-1954-55A. Not only is the Ladybird collection is known for its elegance, it is also well regarded for featuring mechanical movements decorated and assembled by hand. And adding a touch of romance and delicate grandeur is the new Blancpain Ladybird Saint-Valentin 2022.

Inside the 34.9mm diameter and 9.2mm thick 18ct white gold case (circled by 1 row of diamonds) ticks the calibre 1153. This 26.2mm diameter and 3.25mm thick movement beats at the low frequency of 3Hz, comprises 186 components and 28 jewels.

A Ladies Watch With A True Heart

I appreciate that Blancpain hasn’t relegated this as ‘simply a ladies watch’ without much horological prowess attached to it; not only does it feature a mechanical movement with a silicon balance-spring for defence against magnetic forces , but I am also impressed by the 100-hour power reserve, (at least some) 30m water-resistance, and a display case-back.

Of course there are also diamonds — 58 set on the bezel and lug —  but their inclusion doesn’t seem forced; they reign the periphery, and aide in framing the dial ever so elegantly. 

The dial of the Blancpain Ladybird Saint-Valentin 2022 is stunning in its own right, with the second’s hand as an arrow piercing a red burning heart is a stroke of genius. Adorable, loveable, and still horologically efficient, the second’s hand is the key visual aesthetic that really sets this watch apart.

The complimentary varnished blood red Arabic markers complete the calming mother-of-pearl dial on which red elements and another row of diamonds set the temperatures soaring with passionate desire.

Just like the new Breguet Reine de Naples 8905 St-Valentin 2022, completing the design as a whole, I also appreciate the use of colour red in various places (including a somewhat red with a rose-cut ruby set in the crown).

Horologically bold yet femininity imbued, the beautiful new Blancpain Ladybird Saint-Valentin gives you more than one reason to please the special lady in your life.
