Blancpain was founded in 1735 by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain in the village of Villeret in Switzerland. He started making parts and then pocket watches. Blancpain became successful throughout the years and even more in 1931 when it introduced its famous rectangular “Rolls” automatic wristwatch. The long reign of the founding family came to an end in 1932 with the death of Frederic-Emile Blancpain. Because of the lack of family successors, the business was run for the 50 coming years under the name of Rayville. During that time, the famous “Fifty Fathoms” was created in 1953, a technical prowess as the watch was water-resistant to 200 meters. In 1970, Rayville was taking over by the Swiss Watch Group SSIH. In 1982, an Omega employee, Jean-Claude Biver and the movement manufacturer, Jacques Piguet bought the Blancpain name. In 1983, its moon-phase contributed to the reborn of the mechanical wristwatches. Then followed a minute repeater. In 1989, Blancpain introduced a never seen before caliber, an automatic chronograph with split seconds and date. The top watch of the Blancpain collection is the reference 1735, a limited edition of 30 watches. It fits a perpetual calendar, split-seconds chronograph, and tourbillon and minute repeater. In 1992, the Swatch group acquires Blancpain. It remains a company with many different models including alarms, equation of time display and the exclusive manual wound caliber 1330, with its three mainspring barrels, that runs autonomously for a week in a single wind.
