Sometimes the design of a watch will inspire you to look at things differently, and this replica Blancpain Villeret is definitely one of them.
When designing a multi-functional watch, some watchmakers consider everything. Not only can this watch work like a horse, but it is also designed to look elegant and sophisticated. Today, we will review one such watch. Blancpain Villeret moon phase and 40mm complete calendar. We also provide some high-resolution photos of some models from the series, which can show you the details we will discuss in this review.
Let’s start with one of the more popular models in this collection. Of course, we will be talking about 6654-1127-55b, which is in a stainless steel case with a white dial and a black alligator strap. The size of 40 mm will not overburden the wrist, and the thickness of the case is only 10.65 mm, it can also be easily tucked under the shirt cuff.
In addition to the curved blue date hand pointing to the date numbers on the silver inner ring, one of the most notable features of the dial is the stylized Roman numeral hour markers on the outer edge of the dial. They are made of refined steel. In addition, the chapter ring on the inner dial also uses Arabic numerals for the calendar day.
This is one of the reasons that distinguish the Blancpain Villeret moon phase and complete calendar from the Blancpain Villeret Complete Calendar 8 Days, which uses the outer edge of the dial as the calendar day and is placed on the inner dial Use Roman or Arabic numerals as hour markers.
This design operation allows larger, more eye-catching hour and minute hands and a larger central seconds hand to be implanted, making it easier to read the time. Yes, some people still wear such five-digit watches to pass the time these days.
Blancpain replica has such a clean, polished appearance on the dial, so attention to detail must be ensured in the rest of the watch. They studied the design of most complete calendars, which use embedded calendar buttons along the side of the case, and found ways to improve the overall calendar complexity, not only improving the overall appearance, but also improving the overall user experience .
Like most watches with the same functions, the Villerent moon phase and full calendar do not require the use of unique tools to adjust the recessed buttons of the calendar. Blancpain tucked these calendar push rods under the lugs of the case, which can be adjusted with nails instead of tools. Doing so keeps the case design clean and makes the calendar easier to use.
Symmetry plays a big role in the design of this watch, because we can see specific design techniques, even if you separate it from the middle, you can also show a preference for a perfectly balanced appearance.
Some signs indicate that the hole for the day of the week and the name of the month are located below the 12 o’clock position, and the Moonphase complication is opposite to it at 6 o’clock. The watchmaker’s four-a-side system was chosen (instead of the clocks that appear in IIII The Roman numeral IV on the upper side) to offset the VIII on the left side of the eight-clock table.
Except for the crown on the right side of the case and the blue wavy date hand, this watch achieves a perfect balance between visual and physical, and in short, it has mechanical and aesthetic beauty.
This watch has a self-winding internal movement. The Blancpain 6654 movement contains 28 jewels, is composed of 321 parts, and has a power reserve of approximately 72 hours.
When Blancpain designed this movement, they also took some measures to protect the movement from electromagnetic interference and environmental changes. The Blancpain calibre 6654 uses a free-spring balance made of Glucydur. Glucydur is an alloy that combines beryllium, copper, and beryllium bronze iron. Its shape is better than traditional balances. Traditional balances use only two metal alloys or have old balance wheels with slices built in to help them interact with These metals undergo expansion and contraction temperature changes, etc. copy watches
The movement and its counterweight gold tourbillon have been perfectly completed and are as pleasing to the eye as the other side of the case. You will also notice the innovative calendar buttons we mentioned earlier in this article. These buttons are securely hidden under the lugs and are of the right size, so you can use your nails instead of special tools to change the date.
This particular watch uses a sturdy black alligator leather strap and stainless steel folding clasp. Other buckles with different colored straps and precious metals (such as rose gold).

You will see that they replaced the white dial with a gray dial, which has a radially brushed, almost sunny style. Blancpain also replaced all the stainless steel cases on the dial with rose gold, including Roman numerals, hour, minute and central seconds. In addition, the rotor of the movement also matches rose gold.
