Tradition born of innovation
Blancpain was founded in 1735 in the Swiss Jura by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain and is the world’s oldest watchmaking brand. Over the years it has invented countless complications, remaining ever-faithful to its tradition of innovation, and this quest for invention still drives the Master Watchmakers of the Manufacture today. Blancpain is determined to push the boundaries of its inheritance through constant self-renewal and improve its timepieces by constantly challenging watchmaking constraints.
Art of Watchmaking and Art of Living – the same pursuit of excellence
The links between Blancpain, the art of living and fine dining spring from the deeply held conviction that there is a close bond between these worlds and traditional watchmaking – all of which are based on essential common values including the pursuit of excellence, passionate enthusiasm, expertise, sureness of touch and meticulous craftwork. It is therefore very natural for Blancpain to nurture special relationships with starred chefs and world-famous hoteliers. For more than 10 years, Blancpain has been a partner of Relais & Châteaux, with which it joins in cultivating a spirit of innovation along with traditions. And because a warm welcome and impeccable service are essential in facilitating the discovery of horological expertise, Blancpain boutiques also share with Relais & Châteaux that all-important sense of hospitality which enables each individual to enjoy an authentic and emotionally satisfying experience.
