The Blancpain Heure Décentrée is a poetically styled ladies’ watch with an exquisite dial backed up by a superb mechanical movement. The 36.8mm rose gold case is illuminated with swirling ribbons of diamonds set around the bezel. These graceful swirls are echoed on the beautiful mother-of-pearl dial, with a ribbon of diamonds dividing the dial between the off-centre hour and minute display at 12 o’clock and the retrograde 30-second indicator at 6 o’clock. Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback is the self-winding movement with its flower-shaped rotor. Worn on a white ostrich leather strap, the watch is secured with a rose gold deployment clasp. A chic ladies’ watch, the Blancpain Heur Décentrée won the prestigious GPHG Ladies’ Watch Prize for 2014.
