Blancpain Watches

Blancpain – more than 275 years of tradition and innovation

Whether in improving complications, designs and production methods or in conquering new horizons, it has always been the ambition of the Manufacture to take the watchmaker’s art to places it has never been before. Thus, from the very first pieces created in the 18th century to the prestige timepieces of today, the brand has built up a true tradition of innovation. Since 1735, Blancpain has been contributing to the development of mechanical watchmaking, while conserving the traditional skills of its founder.

True to its values, Blancpain regularly joins forces with partners who share the company’s passion for excellence. Whether in the realms of motor sport, the open sea or gastronomy and lifestyle, the Manufacture is proud of these partnerships, which represent far more than mere co-branding. On the contrary, Blancpain participates to the full with its partners in a spirit of seeking new challenges and giving credit for creativity and authenticity.

Blancpain watches come into being in the heart of the Joux valley, the cradle of Swiss watchmaking.

Day after day, Blancpain perpetuates its historical links with Switzerland’s oldest watchmaking tradition by making its timepieces at Le Brassus and Le Sentier, respectively a village and a hamlet in the Joux Valley. This region of the Waldensian Jura is imbued with the soul of the watchmaker’s art. Clockmaking began here in about 1740, and its workshops are still the source of 90% of the complications of Swiss mechanical watchmaking.

Le Brassus

In a former farmhouse, lovingly restored and surrounded with forest and pastureland, the craftsmen of Le Brassus continue to practise the techniques and skills of Swiss mechanical watchmaking. This peaceful environment helps their concentration, a vital ingredient in the perfection of Blancpain watches, which depends on the precision of their work.

The farm still retains its outer walls, and the interior is panelled with cherry-wood, the traditional timber of a watchmaker’s workbench. It is not designed as a factory, but in the spirit of the watchmaking tradition of which the Joux Valley is the guardian.

As in the old days, the watches are made by hand, by craftsmen working together in a family house. Each watchmaker works at his own bench assembling the components of the movement. The warmth of the cherry-wood, the tranquillity of the peaceful workshops and the family atmosphere pay homage to watchmaking tradition.

Le Sentier

As a result of close links going back many years, Frédéric Piguet S.A. was incorporated into Blancpain in July 2010.

This company, a leader in the design and production of top-of-the-range watch movements employing nearly 500 people, had long produced movements and components for Blancpain watches and was also directed by Marc A. Hayek. Le Sentier, it is now an integral part of the Blancpain Manufacture.

The tradition of innovation

Blancpain has been making mechanical watches that set standards of excellence since 1735. A custodian of watchmaking tradition, Blancpain nevertheless seeks to surprise with its spirit of innovation and taste for the provocative.

At Blancpain, respect for our own watchmaking tradition is not felt as a barrier to innovation. On the contrary, the past history of the Manufacture of Le Brassus is an inexhaustible source of ideas. Taking it as inspiration for pushing back frontiers is an ongoing challenge in our company.

Boldness and provocation

Armed with its mastery of the basic stages of watch production, Blancpain is free to follow byways, which it does with enthusiasm. This taste for boldness and provocation finds expression in the latest creations of the brand.

Elegance and beauty

The creation of original products goes hand in hand with the quest for perfection of line. A Blancpain watch is more than the fruit of technical achievement. It is conceived from the start as an object of grace; a moment of pure emotion.

Top-of-range quality

The Blancpain Manufacture pursues a rigorous quality policy designed to produce the best possible watches, designed and assembled entirely in Switzerland. This continual aspiration towards top-quality work and service is embodied in every man and woman in the company, in the workshops of the Joux Valley, just as in Blancpain’s boutiques around the world.
