The classicism and refinement of Blancpain’s Villeret line.
Is there any place in the world that has come to define a gentleman’s style more than the London neighborhood of Savile Row and Jermyn Street? Its fidelity to timeless style, understatement, refinement, and elegance has thrust this small corner of the world to preeminence in men’s furnishings. Skinny legs, fat lapels, no lapels, epaulets, bell bottoms, low rises, high rises may come and, thankfully, go elsewhere, but the virtues found here resist the tides and are as prized today as at any time in the past.
Blancpain’s Villeret collection shares common ground. Since its debut in 1982, the Villeret style has remained faithful to what is now grand tradition at Blancpain. A subtly rounded double pomme case of thin profile, Roman numerals marking the dial, finely shaped hands, all contributing to a refined, understated ambiance, are signature elements of the Villeret style. So, of course, a Villeret timepiece, whether in platinum, gold or steel, is a perfect accompaniment to a finely cut shirt and an elegantly shaped coat. In short, the perfect gentleman.
