For a long time, one of the most difficult challenges for watchmakers is undoubtedly to reduce the thickness of the movement to the thinnest while ensuring the accuracy of the watch. Every part needs to consider the balance between thickness and stability. After fine polishing, it can achieve the unique charm of ‘ultra-thin’ movement technology. Today’s Watch House recommends three Blancpain ultra-thin movement watches for everyone to appreciate their charm.
Blancpain ultra-thin movement series 6223-1127-55 watch
Watch number: 6223-1127-55
Movement type: automatic machinery
Case material: Steel
Strap Material: Crocodile Leather
Case diameter: 38 mm
Domestic public price: 61,500
Watch details: The series of ultra-thin retrograde small seconds watch with a case diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of 10.83 mm. It has a 72-hour power reserve. The watch’s ultra-thin cal. 7663q, with a thickness of only 4.57 millimeters, powers the hour, minute and central serpentine date hands. The small second hand that bounces twice a minute at six o’clock in the direction of the dial shows a charming running dynamic on the dial, which significantly increases the visual beauty of the timepiece. The lugs directly behind the five o’clock position allow quick date adjustment. The dial of the watch is a retro radiant engraved lacquered surface with multi-layered transparent blue, which translates into an unparalleled ocean depth effect. Through the sapphire crystal back, you can admire the mechanical beauty of your watch.
Summary: Compressing complex parts between the square inches of the ultra-thin case, not only has high requirements on the internal structure of the movement, but also the design and manufacturing of the parts themselves are extremely demanding. It is not difficult to see the superb skills of Blancpain watchmakers from the thickness of the movement alone. An exquisitely fitted, ultra-thin watch that looks like nothing, not only is it more visually lighter, but its lighter shape also conforms to the lines of the hand, bringing a more comfortable wearing feeling.
