History of Blancpain Watches
In 1735, the Blancpain watch brand was founded with a focus on designing exceptional mechanical wristwatches. Blancpain is also known as the world’s self-proclaimed oldest watch manufacturer still in operation today. Jehan-Jacques Blancpain opened his workshop and began creating exceptional marvels, such as complex timepieces that bring together both a carousel and a tourbillon. These legendary Blancpain watches are among the brand’s most highly-coveted models. Blancpain is one of the few luxury timepiece brands that has never, throughout their long history, released a battery powered watch. Blancpain is one of the pioneers of implementing tourbillons into their wristwatches, giving inspiration to other timepiece brands.
The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watches are undoubtedly the brand’s most iconic masterpieces. This diving watch has been continuously proving its reliability, durability and readability, since 1953. Today, the Fifty Fathoms watch collection is made up of a wide range of models and variations, from simple three-hand movements in a stainless steel case like the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, to high-complication flyback chronographs. Not to mention the Fifty Fathoms Tourbillon 8 Jours with a rose gold case that features a Blancpain caliber and eight-day power reserve.
