Revealing the intricacies of the calendar function, the fully skeletonised Big Date complication of the Flying Tourbillon Grande Date B 1.618 movement displays the date in a format that is both easy to read and aesthetically minimalist. A simple color accent on the aperture identifies the current date without detracting from the mechanical subtlety of the two discs that rotate in time with the days. Bianchet chose to adapt the big date complication, invented by Lange & Sohne in 1994, in a contemporary and essential style, revealing its mechanical ingenuity.

Two suspended flanges supporting Superluminova blocks, which recall the hour indicators made in the same high-tech material, are placed symmetrically on both sides of the openwork dial. Already present in the Bianchet Tourbillon B1.618 Openwork model, they give the movement a distinctive touch while playing with light, depth, and transparency to create modern and sculptural architecture.

Entirely made in Switzerland and assembled in the Bianchet workshop in La-Chaux-De-Fonds, the calibre of the Flying Tourbillon Grande Date B1.618 is ennobled by hand finishing, which sublimates the beauty of its components. Particularly difficult to achieve on titanium, hand-bevelling, which is guided by the craftsman's hand, gives life to the contours of the bridges, reveals the shapes, and adds sparkle to the winding parts.

Blending Italian design and a sense of elegance with the French art of fine living and attention to detail, Bianchet watches embody a modern essence of style.

Uniting the sensory, cultural, mathematical, and mechanical, this skeleton tourbillon was conceived and designed according to the principles of the Golden Ratio 1.618 and the Fibonacci sequence. The tonneau shape of the case, the design of its movement, the Italian aesthetic sensibility, the French sense of details; everything within it expresses refinement, pure lines, and a natural sense of balance that makes it a watch of our time for our time.
