Established as one of the world’s oldest watchmaking brands, Blancpain has been making watches since it was founded in 1735. As time went on, Jehan-Jaques Blancpain, the founder, was able to perfect his methods of making watches to create elegant and accurate timepieces.
The innovations in the industry assisted him in creating the kinds of watches that would set the name Blancpain as synonymous with quality when it comes to watchmaking. His great-grandson took over operations and modernized the production methods for making watches.
This altered the craftsman approach to watchmaking and made it into a more industrial application capable of manufacturing serial production. The introduction of a cylinder escapement to replace the crown-wheel mechanism was a huge innovation in the watch world of the time.
After a few ups and downs, the Blancpain is still the name people look for when they’re looking for quality. The company is currently run by Marc A. Hayek and has vowed to make sure the company will draw on its rich history to have a watch company others will continue to look to, when they want the finest watches available on the market.
