This 42mm timepiece begins with an 18K red gold round double-stepped case and crown. The understated Grand Feu white enamel dial features hours, minutes, a central seconds hand decorated with the initials JB (for company founder Jacques Blancpain), and a date window at 3 o’clock. The dial also features the initials JB in a tone-on-tone engraving at 12 o’clock.

The sapphire crystal caseback showcases the mechanical self-winding movement, which is decorated with Côtes de Genève on the movement bridges and a honeycomb pattern on the oscillating weight. This piece boasts an 8-day power reserve.

It is completed by a chocolate-toned alligator leather strap.
