BLANCPAIN Rayville Ref. 21851 18k Dresswatch 1970s
Here we have a extremly rare BLANCPAIN Rayville 18k Dresswatch from the 1970s, a wonderful example of a rare and funky timepiece. Featuring a outstanding golden case and mindblowing dial. Dating to the 1970s this model measures classic 36 mm. Even though the 18k yellow gold case appears larger on the wrist. The dial is in perfect condition picking up the same texture as the gold case. With no numbers, but small onyx indices it keeps the minimalistic style. A true eyecatcher and impossible to find again! I believe that this piece was a custom-made watch only produced in small numbers, if not just one. The watch is powered by automatic movement running strong and keeping time well. It comes with an unworn brown leather strap. This Blancpain is most likely a one out of one timpiece and impossible find again. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling, and a great reference to the 70s. It is a splendid model inside and out, so be ready for the constant compliments sure to come your way.
