Blancpain VILLERET Traditional Chinese Calendar, Year of the Rat (REF. 00888H-3431-55B)
Blancpain's Traditional Chinese Calendar Swiss luxury replica watches is a masterpiece of watchmaking masters, which combines the basic principles of ancient Yin and Yang calendars derived from Chinese traditions with Gregorian dates. To celebrate the Chinese New Year, the manufacturer has introduced a new limited edition of this complication, featuring a rat, the first animal of the Chinese zodiac sign, heralding a year of luck and prosperity.
Blancpain met the challenge by mechanically combining two different time interpretations with a traditional Chinese calendar. Five years of research and development are required to correlate the main display of the Chinese calendar with the date based on the solar calendar in the watch. Given the different basic units of these two time division systems, this represents a true technical feat. The solar calendar is based on the solar day, while the solar calendar is based on the lunar cycle and consists of 29,53059 days. Each 12 lunar months is 11 days shorter than a solar year.
In order to maintain consistency with the seasonal cycle, a month is added to the Chinese calendar every two to three years. This unique feature is the reason for the variability of the Chinese New Year dates. However, the complexity of this calendar is not limited to this, because it uses a system that breaks down a day into 12 double-hours, replacing the 24 hours made up every 60 minutes in the Gregorian calendar. Every twelve hours is named after one of the twelve earthly branches, and one of the zodiac signs in turn.U-BOAT CLASSICO 45 TUNGSTENO CAS 2 7431/A Replica Watch
All this information can be found on the Blancpain Traditional Chinese Calendar's white Grand Feu enamel dial. The animal "rat" of the year appears on the window at 12 o'clock. Below is a two-hour counter with numbers and symbols. Three o'clock shows ten celestial pillars and five elements, while two hands at nine o'clock are used to read the month and date. They are complemented by an aperture dedicated to the moon.
The moon phase is used to determine the month of the Chinese calendar and represents a symbolic element of the Blancpain calendar model, highlighted in a window at 6 o'clock. Finally, according to the instructions, associate the date with these instructions and read them on the edge of the ring with a blue steel snake pointer.FRANCK MULLER Gravity Skeleton V 45 T GRAVITY CS SQT WG Replica
