At Baselworld 2011, Blancpain’s young L-Evolution series launched a tourbillon large calendar pendulum dynamic display watch. The power reserve display is placed independently in the subdial on the automatic top. As early as 2007, Blancpain invented this technology and registered it with a patent. After 2 years of improvement by the R & D team, it was used in this watch. Blancpain has hailed this watch as the most outstanding model in the 3 years since the L-EVOLUTION series was launched.
The traditional power reserve indicator is usually located on the dial or on the movement’s splint. The power reserve indicator that is directly connected to the automatic rotor by Blancpain, which is used in this watch, provides us with new possibilities. This technology makes the rotor not only play the role of power transmission, but also becomes a medium for power information, and saves limited dial space.
The diameter of the L-Evolution Tourbillon Grand Tournament Power Display Watch is 43.5mm, and the dial is a classic black-gray match. The time scale uses Blancpain’s unique Roman numeral time scale. The 6-point position is a dual-disc large calendar display. The opposite is the floating tourbillon at 12 o’clock. The entire watch has a low-key taste. The watch is available in white and rose gold, both equipped with a rubber-lined crocodile leather strap, of which the white gold version is paired with black crocodile leather and the rose gold version is paired with brown crocodile leather.
This watch is equipped with Calibre 4225G automatic winding movement, consisting of 414 components. With a 7-day power reserve.
