Item No. 9204

The beautiful and classic Blancpain timepiece showcased in today's offering is a fine example of one of the luxury watchmakers vintage wristwatches made for the U.S. market.

Crafted from solid platinum and bejeweled with a full 50 brilliant, marquise, and single cut diamonds, it radiates elegance and refined taste. Its Breguet dial and "Cathedral" hands give it a true Art Deco style.

It's likely original or possibly period correct 14K white gold bracelet has 8 diamonds of its own. The original, factory set bracelets are clean and white.

It would have made a fine statement piece for the special American woman lucky enough to have been gifted it or to have purchased it herself. Now it's available to be an affordable luxury statement piece for you.

It has all of its original parts. It was made before the days of ubiquitous branding, so its dial is unsigned.

Its original contract case is near mint with a depression in the back. It shows only light signs of previous polishing and presents beautifully on the wrist.

Its lovely Breguet numeral dial, whose finish may be original, appears more likely to be an extremely high quality restoration from vintage times.

One of our Master Watchmakers has freshly serviced the fine Blancpain movement.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
