A first glimpse...

... on the brand new, limited to 88 pieces and Boutique exclusive, Villeret Ultraplate in platinum with a stunning blue sunburst dial.





The simple elegance of reference 6605 finds its more extrovert elements in the blue dial combined with the applied roman numerals and skeleton leaf hands.





The Villeret Ultraplate measures 40mm in diameter and 7,39mm in height. This next shot is my absolute favorite since it captures the essence of this exceptional watch:





The timepiece is powered by caliber 11A4B, based on the well known cal 1150 but reduced by the automatic winding mechanism and enriched by a subtle power reserve indicator.





Here are two shots under natural light, showing the two different expressions of the dial:







I hope you enjoyed the introduction and the photos.

Cheers
Henrik

One of the nicest recent Blancpain models since their 6-masterpieces collection. I only wish the watch were smaller, maybe at 36-38mm instead of 40.

Yes, unfortunately so imo.

The movement would fit better in a smaller case, Breguet used to produce a dress watch with the same movement in 35mm (5907) which was a great model. But, this Blancpain is still a very nice watch.

they did really well with that one !!

a shame it's a bit big in my opinion 40 mm .. I like the old style around 36mm though Kev

I love this simple and pure model!!

Perhaps there will come one day an emailed dial like on the Blancpain Villeret Quantieme Perpetuel 8. Then I would buy it at once. Best, Thomas
