Blancpain was founded in 1735. Its headquarters is in Paudex, Switzerland. Blancpain belongs to the Swatch Group (Breguet, Omega, Longines, Swatch). At the beginning of the 18th century, Jehan-Jacques Blancpain perceived the potential in a completely new business activity: watchmaking. In 1735, he founded the Blancpain brand, setting up his first workshop on the upper floor of his house at Villeret, in the present-day Bernese Jura.
By recording his name in the official property register of the municipality of Villeret, this pioneer had created an establishment which is now the world's oldest watchmaking brand. The Blancpain 1735 watch is one of the most complicated watches ever made, its features include a tourbillon, minute repeater, perpetual calendar, split chrono - and together are the base for a grand complication.
Among the notable Blancpain men's watches are the Blancpain Le Brassus, Blancpain Villeret, Blancpain Leman, Blancpain Fifthy Fathoms, Blancpain L-Evolution. Blancpain womens watches include the Blancpain Ladybird, Blancpain Mille et une nuits, Blancpain Quantieme, Blancpain Riviere.
