Blancpain is a Swiss watchmaking company founded in 1735, in Villeret, credited for its valuable contribution to the industry. Blancpain is curently owned by the Swatch Group, thought it has been through several ownerships throughout its history. The label pays an incredible amount of respect to the craft of making watches. Currently, Blancpain makes only about 30 watches per day and each piece is made by a single watchmaker, by hand, from beginning to end. This is why no piece is exactly like the other, so it would be fair to say that each watch is unique. According to the Blancpain Brand Profile, the label has never and will never produce a quartz watch or one with a digital display. Actually, the company focuses more on items with great complications. The most notorious is Blancpain 1735, a true grand complication watch which includes techniques like the tourbillon, minute repeater, perpetual calendar and split chrono. Another popular Blancpain line is the Fifty Fathoms. This watch was initially created in for divers and worn by world famous explorers like Jacques-Yves Cousteau. The brand also holds some world records like the one for the thinnest movement.
