Blancpain factory visit

I’d like to say a massive thank you to Blancpain (a wonderful manufacture, who were the most generous of hosts in providing an expenses-paid two day trip to their factory in Switzerland) and Watches of Switzerland in Cardiff (who, through Martin Bond, made it possible). Thank you, also, to Andy Good – Blancpain’s brand director in the UK – for being great company.

The view from the hotel

All 744 movement pieces from the Blancpain 1735

Watchmakers working on the high-end pieces (Tourbillons, Carrousels and Minute Repeaters)

Some tuition on complications

And lunch at the local greasy spoon before heading back

All in all, a wonderful and memorable trip!
