There are some watches in the name list, which are ‘blocked’ by players. For example, there are ‘manual king’, ‘automatic king’, ‘steel king’, ‘ghost king’ and so on. These ‘kings’ generally refer to the highest value or strongest watch in a certain type of watch. What I want to say to you today is Blancpain’s ‘Auto King’.
Blancpain 6630 enamel watch
The Blancpain 6630 was once named ‘Auto King’ and ‘King of the Big Three’ by the players. This is because the Blancpain 6630 has an extremely high configuration from the inside to the outside. I have heard of Blancpain’s 6630 name. Not long ago, I started with a platinum 6630 and finally saw the ‘automatic king’ style. The watch of Blancpain 6630 can be said that every part of the watch is very powerful, so let’s look at them one by one.
The size of the Blancpain 6630 enamel watch is 42 mm in the dress watch.
The first is the case. Blancpain 6630 is available in white and rose gold. The 6630 has only a gold shell and no steel shell. 6630 size 42 mm, as a large three-handed watch, 42 mm is considered a large size, very domineering to get started. 6630’s double-layer bezel is a major feature of Blancpain.
White gold case 6630 and rose gold case 6630
From the two cases of white gold and rose gold, rose gold is more popular in China, and white gold is not as good as rose gold. This is also because white gold and stainless steel are the same color. If you don’t know it, it will be treated as a steel watch, and rose gold will be a gold watch at a glance. At first I didn’t catch cold with platinum case either, because it was not like gold watch. But then, my attitude towards platinum changed. The reason is that I once bought a gold-shelled yacht II and a gold-headed gold chain. After I bought it, I felt that it was too high-profile and too ostentatious. After that, I started accepting platinum watches. So platinum 6630, I welcome it.
The enamel side of Blancpain 6630 is very beautiful.
The surface of Blancpain 6630 is enamel plate. White plain enamel with Roman numerals on it. For those who don’t know, a quick look, the white enamel dial is no different from ordinary watches. But if you take a closer look, you will find that the effect of the enamel dial is definitely not comparable to that of the ordinary lacquered dial. The color of the enamel plate is very soft and has a mirror effect, which is very moist. The hand-drawn hour markers have a strong artistic flavor. We can see the thickness of the enamel plate from the calendar window at 3 o’clock on the watch. The biggest feature and value of the enamel plate is that it is as good as new for hundreds of years. After decades and hundreds of years, enamel can remain durable and clean as new. At the same time, another reason for the high value of enamel plates is the low yield. If bubbles, trachoma and cracks appear during the firing process, they can only be scrapped. For example, if you do it ten times, you can succeed once, so the value is high.
The 1335 self-winding movement used by the Blancpain 6630 has 8 days of power.
The movement of Blancpain 6630 is very good. When I first got this watch, I saw the movement. I used to think that the 6630 used the Blancpain 1315 movement, which was the movement on the 50 噚. The power was 120 hours and 5 days. However, a friend told me that this watch has 192 hours of power and 8 days of power. I took a closer look and found that it is a 1335 movement, which has better performance than the 1315 movement. The 1335 movement is definitely Blancpain’s strongest automatic movement. It automatically winds for 8 days, which is one day more than the power of Portugal 7. At the same time, Calibre 1335 maintains Blancpain’s high standard of polishing and decoration. It can be seen, all invisible places are polished, and the plywood is chamfered. At the same time, the diamond-shaped honeycomb carving on the automatic rotor of the movement is very delicate. The 1335 movement of the 6630 was unexpected. Some brands of enamel watches and enamel plates are indeed very good, but it is difficult to accept a 2289 movement. Compared with Blancpain 6630, the gap is really too big.
Blancpain 1335 front (top) and back (bottom). Note that the movement removes the automatic top.
On the clasp, the 6630 still uses a folding clasp, which is the same as the clasp on the 6654. I prefer this kind of elastic folding buckle. Easy to open and close.
This watch from Blancpain 6630, I want to focus on the watch box. The watch box of the Blancpain 6630 is super large. In the past, when I wrote a watch and took some photos, I would find a piece of black paper or black leather as the background, and I used the watch box as the background directly because the box was really big. As an enamel watch with a public price of more than 200,000, Blancpain makes it reasonable for 6630 to prepare such a large and luxurious watch box. The huge case has two upper and lower layers. The upper layer is for the watch and the lower part is for the card attachment. There are two handles next to the upper layer that can lift the upper layer. The huge luxury watch box can increase the ritual sense of the famous watch. The two brands of Blancpain and Omega, the boxes are very large and exquisite, impressive. The only trouble is that the watch box takes up a lot of space, but considering that the box has a complete set of accessories so that it can be sold in the future, the watch box must be properly stored.
Blancpain 6630 enamel watch
The public price of Blancpain 6630 is 219,000 (belt version). As a big three needle, the public price is very high. But comprehensive analysis of all aspects of 6630, you will find this watch is worth the money. The huge gold case, the enamel plate, and the extremely powerful movement are the strongest in all aspects. We can simply compare the public price. The price of Patek Philippe’s official bottom cover automatic big three needle 5227 is more than 240,000 (5296 should have been discontinued). Vacheron Constantin automatic big three needle 85180 is more than 200,000. The price of 6630 is 21.9 million, which shows the price-performance ratio, which is mainly better than the enamel plate and automatic 8-day power (of course, buying a watch mainly depends on personal preference). 6630 was named ‘Auto King’ and ‘King of the Three Pins’ by the players, which is also widely expected, which is a recognition of the quality of this watch.
