Jehan-Jacques Blancpain officially founded his watch company in 1735 and it was passed down through the same family for almost two centuries. That is a lot of watchmaking history to live up to! Fortunately, Blancpain watches have a long and well-earned reputation for sterling quality and exquisite craftsmanship.
They are also respected for the innovations that are a hallmark of the brand. One of these innovations was the Fifty Fathoms in 1953. This watch is the world's first truly modern dive watch. To this day, the Blancpain brand's passion and zest for crafting fine diving watches are respected around the world.
This luxury watch brand had a bit of a bumpy recent history until it finally joined the Swatch Group in 1992. That fusion gave it the stability it needed to re-emerge as one of the world's most iconic watch brands.
