Characteristics and remarks

265 years ago, an innovative family from the little city Villerset (western Switzerland) gave the watch brand Blancpain its name. Over 200 years and 7 generations the company management, history and talent was given from father to son. The era of the family ended 1932 with the last male Blancpain. Nevertheless, this old-established name shines now more than ever. In 1933 two close employees of the last Blancpain took the company under the name 'Rayville S.A., succ. de Blancpain' over. From 1952 on professional diver watchs were produced, which wrote history under the name 'Fifty Fathoms'. Jacques-Yves Cousteau and his team, too, used and tested these reliable timing devices. In 1971, when the quartz revolution took its toll on the whole swiss clock production, sales of Blancpain watches were unaffected. The goal of becoming an exclusive top-brand moved closer. At the beginning of the eighties, coincidence and entrepreneurial creativity led to an amazing revival. Conventional watchmaking skills dictated the visionary program of the modern spirit. With his demand to "never make a quartz clock", Jean-Claude Biver became protagonist of the mechanical watch renaissance. With great attention to detail, originate complex mechanical marvels in Swiss Blancpain factories. Excellent clockmakers work for days, weeks or even months on a single exemplar. Nicolaus G. Hayek, chairman of the Swatch Group, said to the magazine CRONOS: "Blancpain is one of the most wonderful labels in the world."
The watch offered here is a masterpiece by Blancpain. Here, the clockmakers have tried to realize artistic aesthetics. The watches are produced with greatest accuracy and inspection. Enthusiasts of beauty, art and culture will be fascinated. It is a typical dream watch, captivating with its simple elegance. Refinement meets simplicity to accentuate the essential of time.
