Blancpain is the worlds oldest watch manufacture. Since 1735 the company that was started by the visionary Jehan-Jacques Blancpain in the upper floor at his house in Villeret has built a reputation based on repetitive innovation. Blancpain continued to modernise production methods and by the mid 19th century the House had become the most substantial enterprise in the region.
Almost 300 years on from it's formation Blancpain remains a progressive and ambitious Manufacture. From the very first pieces built in the 18th century to the modern day, the philosophy has been to create mechanical watches to a standard of excellence that other brands aspire to.
