This is a belated 6654. I have bought several Blancpains one after another in the past two years, but basically they are all around 50 噚, steel shell, titanium shell, ceramic shell, black and blue, and played around. But not much contact with Blancpain’s formal watches. I remember about 2 years ago, a friend in the same city transferred me a 6653 (the watch with a 30-second retrograde small second hand), and in addition, I never touched a Blancpain watch.

6654 is Blancpain’s hottest formal watch in the country, and many players have bought it. I didn’t have a flu with formal watches before, and I didn’t think it matched my usual clothes. So I thought about buying 6654, but I never went on. Later, I heard a player say that he was wearing a sportswear and a formal watch, and I began to change my attitude towards formal watches. It was not until after starting this ‘late’ 6654 that I discovered the beauty of 6654.
Blancpain 6654 is a full-calendar moon phase watch. The full-calendar moon phase refers to that this watch has four functions: date, day of the week, month, and moon phase. Blancpain is an expert in making full moon phase watches. Although many watch brands have similar watches, Blancpain is strong. It has 4 functions arranged on the dial in a very balanced and harmonious manner, which is very beautiful and not messy. Blancpain’s moon phase is well done, and there are some historical reasons in it. In the 1950s and 1960s, full-calendar moon phase charts were very popular, and even Rolex produced full-calendar moon phase charts. Later, because of the impact of the quartz watch, everyone did not make such a complicated watch. In 1983, Blancpain was the first brand to re-launch a full calendar moon phase watch. After all these years, the full moon phase has almost become Blancpain’s signature style. Full calendar moon phases are Blancpain’s traditional strengths.
6654 size 40 mm, double bezel (double bezel is a feature of Blancpain), 6654 on the not large dial from layout to color, the arrangement of the various windows, hands are in place. The outermost circle of the disk is the Roman numerals in K gold, and the 31-day calendar circle is inside. In the innermost circle, there is a week and month window at 12 o’clock and a moon phase window at 6 o’clock. K gold hour hand, minute, second hand (with Blancpain logo at the end of the second hand), and snake-shaped blue steel calendar hands are in the middle. As you can see, the biggest advantage of this 6654 arrangement is that you don’t have to look at many things on the disk, but they are very symmetrical and clear at a glance. When the light shines into the dial, because the Roman numerals and hands are gold, and the snake-shaped calendar hands are blue steel, it is very dazzling, flashing, and has a very good sense of hierarchy. It is in contrast to the lacquered calendar. Dark, dark and light.
The layout of Blancpain 6654 is very balanced and harmonious.
Someone said before that, Blancpain 6654 is the most beautiful moon phase watch, and Blancpain’s moon phase is the most beautiful. I understand this point now. As you can see, the moon phase of 6654 has a human face, and other moon phase tables of the same level are a polished moon. At the same time, Blancpain’s moon face has an ‘electric light’ effect. Under different light, the light is suddenly bright and dark, the effect is outstanding.
Blancpain 6654 uses 1150/1151 series movements.
6654 uses Blancpain 1150/1151 series movements. Blancpain added full-calendar moon phase function to 1150/1151 and renumbered as 6654. 1150/1151 and 1315 are Blancpain’s two main movements. Among them, 1315 is larger in size, mainly used in large size 50 噚, and 1150/1151 is smaller, mainly used in formal watches and small size 50 噚. . 6654 uses silicon hairspring on the movement, no balance weight fine adjustment balance wheel (balance wheel shape is very special), power reserve 72 hours. In the decoration of the movement, Blancpain has always maintained a high level of polishing. The splint of the movement is chamfered, the upper splint of the movement is decorated with Geneva stripes, the lower splint is decorated with pearl patterns, and the K-gold automatic tourbillon is engraved with wheat-like patterns. Various decorations are in line with Blancpain’s positioning.

The most important technical feature of the 6654 is the quick adjustment device on the 4 lugs. Through these 4 buttons, you can quickly adjust the date, day of the week, month, and moon phase. No other tools are needed (adjusting stick or toothpick), you can operate it directly, push it with your nails, and it’s OK. And most other brands of similar watches, use the hidden buttons on the case to adjust the meter, not only need tools, but also one by one button on the case, affecting aesthetics. Full-calendar moon phase watch Because of the many functions of the watch, it takes a long time to skip the calendar every night. At 9 o’clock in the evening, the day of the week window began to shift slowly, and then the calendar pointer began to shift slowly. At about 12:10 p.m., the calendar was completed. Although I have the impression that Blancpain has a calendar protection decoration, Blancpain also told me that do not adjust the meter (calendar) between 8 pm and 3 pm, you should pay attention to the issue of adjusting the restricted area.
The Blancpain 6654 adjusts the calendar, day of the week, month, and moon phase by four buttons on the lugs.
The clasp of 6654 is a folding clasp. I prefer the elastic folding clasp of 6654. I think it is better than the one with the buckle on the other side.

Finally, I talk about the price. The price of 6654 is 115,000. From the public price to the positioning, it can be said that among the mainstream brand watches, the top steel case is being installed. The mainstream brand steel case is even more expensive than the 6654 public price, and there are not too many. 6654 has reached a balance point of brand, face value, and technology (hope that with the advancement of movement technology in the future, all transient jumps can be achieved). In addition, there is ample supply of 6654, making it easy to buy a watch. In addition to discounts, exchange rates, secondary markets and other factors, how much the final actual price can be won depends on your own situation. Overall, I think the price of 6654 is good. Fire makes sense.
