An Evening with Blancpain Watches

My Tuesday evening took me into central London, with Blancpain at their New Bond Street store. They invited me in to experience a world of luxury timepieces, Cigars and fine Scotch whisky.

Blancpain are luxury Swiss makers founded in 1735, by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain. With Blancpain you will find the finest, most complicated Swiss watches ever crafted, with each watch being made by a single watchmaker.

Blancpain showed us the art or crafting their watches from scratch, breaking down every tiny component used to control every mechanism.
