BLANCPAIN – Villeret Chronographe Pulsomètre

Long before the electronic blood pressure monitor or modern “heart rate” watches were invented, doctors and nurses measured their patients’ heart rate using their fingers and a watch equipped with a pulsometer ideally. The pulsometer scale along the dial usually went up to 30 to provide the number of beats per minute. The Villeret model’s domed white enamel dial features an old-fashioned pulsometer surrounding the enamelled Roman hour numerals, chronograph counters (30 minute indicator at 3 o’ clock and 12 hour indicator at 9 o’ clock) and date display (at 6 o’ clock). Two slim openwork hands point to the dial’s hours and minutes and the chronograph flyback function (pusher at 4 o’ clock) which are all brought to life by Blancpain’s very own self-winding calibre housed in a 43.6mm rose gold case. Price: 29,500 CHF
