Blancpain Watches

Blancpain is one of the finest timepiece manufacturers in the world. The company was founded in 1735 in Le Brassus Switzerland. Blancpain is now owned by the Luxury watch company Swatch Group. The Swatch Group is run by the Hyack family, and they have made a significant investment to make Blancpain one of the leading fine timepiece brands in the world. Blancpain manufactures four collections of timepieces: Le Brassus, Villeret, Leman, Specialites.

Blancpain Le Brassus Carrousel

We will begin by looking at the Le Brassus Collection. The Le Brassus features a classic round case shape and is available in six different versions. The GMT version includes a date, day, GMT, month, moon phase, perpetual calendar and sweep second. The split seconds chrono has the same case and includes a split chrono, date window and power reserve indicator. The Perpetual Calendar Le Brassus displays the day, month, date, and moon phases. The Tourbillon model is the finest timepiece made by Blancpain. The Minute Repeater model features a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater that strikes on demand at the hour, quarter hour and minute.

The Blancpain Villeret is an ultra slim dress watch for men. The Villeret is available in a chronograph, minute repeater, moon phase, perpetual calendar, and a tourbillon version. This elegant timepiece is made in gold and platinum. Blancpain’s Leman collection is a less formal sports watch that can be worn in an office as well. The Leman, like the Villeret, also comes in different versions including a chronograph, perpetual calendar, and a tourbillon version.
