Blancpain caliber 5235DF
Self-winding movement with date, power reserve indicator, second time zone and day/night indicator.
It displays the reference time at 12 o’clock, the half-hour timezone in the centre, the day/night indication for the reference time at 9 o’clock, the date – which changes in step with the second timezone – at 6 o’clock, and the date change or timezone indication at 4 o’clock.
With this movement it is possible to adjust the second timezone on the watch in 30-minute increments and thus to ensure relaxed travel to countries with half-hour time differences. A pusher located on the head of the crown serves to select fast date correction or half-timezone adjustment mode. Correcting the reference time automatically modifies that of the second timezone. It is worth noting that the date correction is fully secured to avoid any risk of damage.
