Blancpain’s ‘Mastering the Masters’ Big Complex Watch Exhibition Nanjing Station

   ‘The founder of classic timepieces’ Blancpain was born in 1735 and originated in the Swiss Jurassic Mountains. Blancpain’s movement factory and large complex watchmaking workshops are located in the Jura Valley of watches and clocks in the ‘Silicon Valley’. It is one of the rare Swiss fine watchmaking brands in the industry that can completely design, develop, produce, assemble and sell from A to Z.

   Blancpain’s movement research and development capabilities are world-famous. Not only can it produce various existing complex functions, such as tourbillon, minute repeater and perpetual calendar, but it can also continue to discover innovations and create new complex functions, such as one-minute coaxial Carrousel. Chinese calendar, and underwater precision mechanical sounding.
   Blancpain knows that in the field of large and complex watchmaking, mastering various complex functions is just an introduction. Only by using the art of overlay and layout and controlling each function to achieve a deeper theme can we evolve from blind stacking to complexity. With deep meaning, achieve the true master of mastery.

Blancpain Le Brassus Minute Repeater Carrousel

   Carrousel, translated as ‘Merry-go-round’, is a rare and fascinating complex function. From a functional perspective, it was originally born to offset the gravity and keep the watch moving accurately.
   At the end of the 19th century, Bahne Bonniksen, a Danish watchmaker living in the UK, invented Caruso, but he did not expect that its manufacturing process was more complicated and the parts were more diverse than the tourbillon, which led to the price not falling. Rise. A hundred years later, when the tourbillon in the industry has soared, but few breakthroughs have been made, Blancpain has taken a new approach, giving Caruso a new life, creating a one-minute coaxial caruso, and applying it to his watch for the first time, again Show the world the extraordinary innovation strength of the brand.

Blancpain Villeret Classic Chinese Calendar Zodiac Limited Edition
   Blancpain has always paid homage to the long-standing Chinese traditional culture. Unlike drawing only Chinese elements on the dial, the Chinese calendar has never before been functionally subverted. After five and a half years of research on the Chinese calendar and re-invention of the movement device, Blancpain combined the dual-track calendar with the Gregorian calendar and the single-track Gregorian calendar to overcome the irregular countermeasures of the yin and yang combined calendar cycle of the Chinese calendar The many challenges of watch technology have pioneeredly presented the traditional Chinese timekeeping methods (year of the zodiac, days of the zodiac, five elements, hours, and moon phases) clearly and accurately on the dial. Once this landmark model came out, it became a watch collection of fans from all over the world.

The pinnacle of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms X professional diving watch
   Born in 1952, the Fifty Fathoms is the only professional diving watch on the market that can truly meet the challenges of the deep sea environment. With outstanding performance, Fifty Fathom defines the standards and specifications of the modern diving watch industry, which are still followed by the industry today.
   As the founder of the standard, Blancpain was not satisfied with following the existing standards, so in 2011, X 噚 came out-it includes a mechanical depth sounder up to 90 meters deep, and can record the dive depth, and another The 0-15 meter mechanical depth sounder, which operates alone, has a measurement error of only 30 cm at a depth of 15 meters. In addition, the X 噚 is also the first to be equipped with a 5-minute countdown function, which is used when diving for decompression stops.

Blancpain L-evolution Introduces Carrousel Tourbillon
   Can the tourbillon and Caruso’s complication, which is famous in the horological world, be placed in a watch at the same time and worn on the wrist?
   Although the structure of the tourbillon and Carloso are different, they have the same purpose and the same song. Both of them rotate continuously, and they dazzle in the watch. In two different systems, Carrousel’s structure is more complicated and there are more parts. To ensure the two co-exist and run smoothly, it is undoubtedly a great challenge. The perfect integration of the two speed control systems of the flywheel and Carloso has created an extraordinary masterpiece of the Carrousel Tourbillon watch created by L-evolution.

Blancpain Le Brassus series of three-question event puppets Carrousel watch, and all kinds of advanced custom gold sculpture event puppets
   Combining purely hand-carved metal figurines with complex minute repeater functions has reached its peak, Blancpain’s watchmakers are not only satisfied with this, continue to take the pace of innovation, to win the crown of large and complex watchmaking. The movement of the action puppet uses a large amount of kinetic energy in the movement, which will also affect the kinetic energy used in the minute repeat time. How can the action of the dynamic puppet be vividly displayed without affecting the percussion of the minute repeat time? How to add Blancpain’s unique one-minute coaxial Carussell function to superimpose the cutting-edge functions in harmony? The Blancpain Le Brassus series of three-question activity puppet Caruso watch gives the answer.
   Mechanical watches are the crown of human handicrafts, and mechanical watches equipped with complex functions are the pearl of this crown. Their most valuable feature is not only the countless hours of hand-made work by watchmakers, but also the endless imagination and expansion of the limits of mechanical skills and aesthetics.
   The Blancpain Large Complex Watches depicts all your imaginations about complex mechanical watches.
