A custodian of watchmaking tradition, Blancpain nevertheless seeks to surprise with its spirit of innovation and taste for the provocative. At Blancpain, respect for our own watchmaking tradition is not felt as a barrier to innovation. On the contrary, the past history of the Manufacture of Le Brassus is an inexhaustible source of ideas. This taste for boldness and provocation finds expression in the latest creations of the brand. With a high proportion of its components and tools designed and made in-house, training of specialists and craftsmen, manual assembly of each movement by a single watchmaker, the strength of the Manufacture lies in its capacity to create timepieces that are at once innovative and loyal to the grand Swiss watchmaking tradition.
