For the intelligent snake, the fascinating Calendrier Chinois Traditionnel by Blancpain highlights the seamless integration of the hours, minutes and the Gregorian calendar, together with the main indications of the Chinese calendar: traditional double-hour indication, day, month with indication of leap months,signs of the zodiac, as well as the five elements and the 10 celestial stems. The combination of the latter with the 12 animals of the zodiac that represent the terrestrial branches follows the sixty-year cycle that is central to Chinese culture. The moon phases, a key element in Blancpain complete calendars, are also presented and play a particularly important role in this model, given the link between the lunar cycle and traditional Chinese months.
