The 2017 Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day Special Edition.

When it comes to fine watches, it sometimes seems like every day is Father’s Day. No need to create a special watch to celebrate men, since most mechanical timepieces are already geared to male aficionados. Blancpain, however, thoughtfully singles out women once a year for a special-edition watch designed to be gifted to a woman on St. Valentine’s Day. Blancpain, the maker of such tough-guy timepieces as the Fifty Fathoms and sophisticated complications like the Tourbillon Carrousel, has been making ladies watches since 1930, and lays claim to having made the first automatic watch for ladies.

Starting with the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage, the newest piece is quite similar to previous major Pilot’s Watches together with the exclusion of case material, which can be currently either ceramic or bronze, and the addition of the very striking IWC 52110 in-house manufacture standard. IWC’s automatic winding 52110 features a shocking 168 hour (seven day) power reserve, Côtes de Genève and perlage completing, and 31 stones, all ticking along at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) interior of a soft iron inner case to withstand magnetic fields found in aviation environments. The normal major Pilot’s 51111 caliber features more jewels at 42 but defeats in a significantly slower 21,600 vibrations per hour (3Hz). Otherwise, the 46.2millimeter case, touch crown, and classic inspired leather strap stay similar in style to previous major Pilot’s. For anyone who have more regular wrists and bank accounts, IWC have also produced the Mark XVIII at a special Heritage edition. The new IWC Pilot’s Mark XVIII Heritage keeps the aviation fashion dial and hands as well as the modest 40mm case dimensions from previous models. New is the use of titanium for a case material which lends the piece a pragmatic texture in addition to a much lighter overall weight reduction. The inclusion of IWC’s 35111 caliber also distinguishes this new model from it is forebears and while it isn’t a totally in-house grade like those in the Heritage Big Pilot’s, it’s still a capable 25-jewel movement dependent on the Sellita SW300 instead of the 21-jewel, ETA 2892 base motion located in the standard IWC Mark XVIII. A marginally less impressive caliber such as the 35111 with a more approachable 42-hour power book also helps maintain the price somewhat fair.

In addition to making ultra-slim movements for women, the company also makes a Quantième Retrograde with retrograde date and a Complete Calendar with moon phase. The movements used for the Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day watches are all mechanical – Blancpain has never made a quartz movement – most designed specifically for ladies’ watches. Since the Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day watch was first introduced in 2001, it has been powered by several different movements, most with center seconds hands, which is rare on a ladies’ mechanical timepiece. The calibers used in the past Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day watches include the ultra-thin automatic Caliber 1150 with 100-hour power reserve; Caliber 6763 automatic day-date, with pointer-type date display; Caliber F185, a flyback chronograph, originally used by the brand in 1998 to power the world’s first ladies’ flyback chronograph; the “Lady Bird” Caliber 6150, which at the time it was introduced (in the 1950s) was the world’s smallest automatic movement (15.7mm diameter).

The 2004 version of the Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day Special Edition.

The Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day watch has been a tradition since 2001 and usually includes a heart motif placed artfully somewhere on the watch. This year, it is formed by a cluster of 19 rubies set into the dial at 12 o’clock. The rubies are buff-top cut, a mixed cut that typically has a smooth upper half and a faceted pavilion, a combination that creates light return even when a gem is set flush into metal – particularly when it is set into a thin layer of metal, such as a watch dial, where no light penetrates the pavilion. The heart has had several interesting incarnations on the special editions. In the 2007 piece, the inner mother-of-pearl dial was heart-shaped. In 2009 the small seconds subdial was outlined by rubies set to form a heart shape. On the 2011 version, a heart-shaped ruby was set discreetly at 12 o’clock flush with the diamonds on the bezel. The dial of the 2013 edition featured five red-lacquered mother-of-pearl hearts, with the hearts repeated on the rotor and case side. A heart charm dangles from the strap of the 2016 edition.

Founded in 1868 by American watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones, IWC would gradually and slowly, over its own one-and-a-half-century-long history, develop a reputation for solidly engineered watches — the company’s Latin motto, “Probus Scafusia,” translates to “good craftsmanship in Schaffhausen.” To celebrate the 150-year anniversary of this brand, IWC has just unveiled two high-tech tourbillon watches that certainly exhibit the brand’s know-how in complex watchmaking. The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Edition “150 Years” is important because it is the first time IWC has combined a perpetual calendar with a tourbillon on the dial. The watch comes in a 45mm wide Portugieser-style case, which IWC fans will instantly recognize from its distinctive short and curved lugs as well as the chunky knurled crown. Paired with a black Santoni alligator strap and water resistant to only 30m, it goes without saying that it should be kept away from water.The dial is white and features a lacquered finish with big black Arabic numerals printed in the signature ribbon of IWC’s Portugieser watches. Sizable heat-treated leaf-shaped hour and minute hands and a simple railroad-style minutes track guarantee time can be easily read.

The 2017 version of the Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day Special Edition.

The 2017 Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day edition is a great, robust everyday watch, with a steel case, 50-meter water resistance, and an automatic movement, the ultra-slim Caliber 913. It has a glucydur balance wheel fitted with micrometric regulating screws, and a balance spring made of silicon, the low density of which makes it particularly light and shock-resistant. Silicon is also anti-magnetic. The gold rotor is given a snailed bevel and polished angles, as well as straight and circular Côtes de Genève patterns. The Blancpain logo is red to match the ruby heart on the dial. It comes with two interchangeable alligator leather straps, one in red and the other in white. Like all Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day watches, it is a limited edition, this one engraved and numbered from one to 99. The seconds hand is shaped like a Cupid’s arrow, with a red tip. Otherwise, the dial is set only with diamond markers and three Roman numerals in the collection’s signature font. The 29mm case’s bezel and lugs are set with 68 diamonds. It is priced at $14,900. blancpain.com
