Blancpain’s new Ladybird for Valentine’s Day

So, if you’ve been stuck for gift ideas for Valentine’s Day, here’s a cue. Last year, Blancpain came up with roses for Valentine’s Day. The Saint Valentine’s 2015 watch had a lovely, soft pink rose where each petal was crafted in delicately sculpted and dyed mother-of-pearl. Adding an element of interest at the heart of the watch was an off-center hour movement.

The watchmaker has recently unveiled its newest piece just in time for Valentine’s Day. This year, the Le Brassus manufacturer has drawn upon earlier inspirations of the Ladybird model and designed a timepiece with heart motif. Limited to just 99 pieces, the Ladybird Saint Valentine’s Day 2016 watch features a mother-of-pearl dial accented with brilliant-cut diamonds. The heart-shaped mother-of-pearl heart has a delicate sprinkling of diamonds and rubies adorning its upper part. The 18k white gold case features a bezel adorned with diamonds and a detachable ruby heart and diamond arrow charm, which can be placed either at 6 o’clock or 12. The timepiece has a calfskin strap with the edition number engraved on the back case.

This romantic Ladybird watch makes for a lovely token of love. Time for love, you’ll agree.
