The Blancpain Blog will concentrate on the Manufacture and the timepieces created in Le Brassus and Le Sentier. My aim is to over time build a source that provides a comprehensive overview on the collections since the 1990s , share hands-on experience with the timepieces, showcase the watches with detailed and emotional photography and offer an opportunity to discuss your thoughts and ideas.

This blog is independent, but it receives support by Blancpain in terms of knowledge, access to the Manufacture and their representatives and the opportunity to capture their timepieces with my photography, of which I am very grateful for.

Now, please join the blog, enjoy and have fun. Together we can share our passion and build a source that over time accumulates knowledge accessible to collectors and enthusiasts. You can follow the blog (necessary for email alerts on new reports) and in addition register as a member, which gives you the opportunity to actively engage by commenting on blog posts and photos… and maybe a blog forum. Help me decide and please let me know whether you would welcome a forum on the blog.

Get in contact and let me know which topics you are interested in, and I will do my best to capture those moving forward. Over time the Blancpain Blog shall build a solid database for existing and past references, so we get a comprehensive overview on the outstanding timepieces created in Le Brassus, Le Sentier and Paudex.
