Despite its reputation as the oldest watchmaking house in the world, Blancpain is still at the cutting edge of horological innovation. This avant-garde approach to watch design is most apparent in the Blancpain L-Evolution collection.
The Blancpain L-Evolution collection is inspired by the technical mastery, endurance, and precision of motorsport. The slim, lightweight designs in the series include models such as the L-Evolution R Chronographe Flyback Grande Date, GMT Tourbillon, and Moonphase 8 Days.
Blancpain has taken a sophisticated approach to watch styling, using genuine alligator leather or Alcantara synthetic suede instead of the rubber bracelets typically seen on standard sports timepieces. The straps are fitted with a deployant clasp to keep your watch securely on your wrist all day.
The cases are available in 18K rose gold, stainless steel, or rugged titanium for long-lasting scratch-resistance, and dials are crafted from high-performance materials such as carbon fiber. The cases are waterproof up to 330 ft., ensuring maximum performance regardless of the weather.
The L-Evolution watch faces often feature oversized Roman or Arabic numerals at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions. The dials also typically feature complications, such as day-date windows, small seconds counter, moonphase, GMT subdial, and power reserve indicators.
The L-Evolution is powered by Blancpain’s in-house F185 caliber automatic movement. Designed using the Frederic Piguet 1185 base caliber, this movement uses 37 jewels and a ball bearing rotor to drive the oscillator and three-legged monometal balance with a flat hairspring, generating 21,600 bph. It comes with a KIF Ultraflex Anti-shock system and provides a 40-hour power reserve.
At Luxury of Watches, every Blancpain L-Evolution watch comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a generous 5-year warranty for your peace of mind.
