Among purists, date windows on watches can be polarising. But for those who are fans, the outsized version known as the big date is the ultimate way to track the passing days.

    While some watches try to appeal to all kinds of demographics at once, Blancpain’s Villeret Semainier Grande Date 8 Jours, with its weekly (“semainier”) calendar feature, was designed with the businessperson in mind. While the number-of-the-week scale – marked one to 53 on the rim of the dial – facilitates long-term business planning, the dual-window big date at six o’clock helps to keep you on top of things from day to day. The 40mm red gold watch is self-winding, with an eight-day power reserve.
