About the Balmain watch brand

Today Balmain is one of the most influential designer brands in the world. With celebrity alumni including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the brand’s rich history and impact date back much further than 2016.

Founded by Pierre Balmain, he dressed some outstanding figures of Parisian haute couture. Pierre has dressed historical icons and has left his mark on queens, princesses, movie stars and well-known names in the theatre.

Pierre’s dream was to express his art in fashion giving the world a taste “Luxury à la Française “. Balmain still to this day is inspired by art and design. This tradition stems from its founder’s passion for the elaborate styles of the art world.

Pierre was inspired mainly by Arab and Mandarin art in particular. Both of these cultures use oversized, stylised and realistic images of flowers and plants.

When Balmain was given the delicate task of creating and developing Balmain Watches in 1987, the timepieces had to reflect the prestigious Balmain name — capturing the detail which goes into every piece of fashion.

Now in 2016, collection after collection, Balmain create watches which has the dials with the arabesque motif that traditionally have always been at the heart of Montres Pierre Balmain’s creations. The brand has stayed loyal by maintaining “his original inspiration, the arabesque motif and the sense of elegance”.

Balmain’s watch production isn’t set to stop as they are continually creating new pieces which make use of bold shapes and design while maintaining first-class watchmaking technology. If you are looking to have your Balmain Watch Repair, we could have it sent back to you in a matter of a week, contact a member of our team today for more information.

In December 1995, the Swatch Group acquired the exclusive rights to manufacture, market and distribute Balmain’s throughout the entire world. Based at Saint-Imier deep in the Swiss Jura, the business celebrated its tenth anniversary in 1997 with, a globally acclaimed collection that remains a leading model in the Balmain collection.

One of the brand’s most recognisable features is their world-famous Balmain dial; the stunning design was inspired by the extravagant embroidery that embellishes the haute couture dresses of its creator.

Still, to this day, the world of fashion draws its inspiration from Balmain’s designs, and each Balmain watch holds a history and significance all of its own.

Balmain maintenance and care tips

BALMAIN SERVICE AND BATTERY LIFE

The general battery life of a Balmain watch is between two and five years, and this is the average for most watch brands.

Keep in mind; this is variable depending on the type of watch and the amount of energy required by its various functions. It is always advised to send your watch away for a Balmain Service.

BALMAIN WATCH SERVICING: CLEANING A BALMAIN WATCH

Whether your Balmain timepiece is made of stainless steel or yellow or white 18-carat gold, all Balmain models are made with the same high-quality standards. This watch brand has art for its attention to detail. Each piece is equal with elegance and refinement and meets the quality and aesthetic demanded by luxury wristwear owners.

If you are cleaning any watch, care should be taken. It is advised that a timepiece is cleaned using a toothbrush. A Balmain watch should always be cleaned after contact with seawater. In this case, you should always rinse your Balmain watch with fresh water.

MECHANICAL WATCHES WITH MANUAL WINDING

If your mechanical watches have manual winding – it may need to be wound daily. This process will give your watch enough sufficient power to function properly. If you are manually winding your watch, you must do this by turning the crown clockwise as far as it will go. This must be done gently. Therefore it is advised not to force it when it reaches this point. By putting too much pressure on your timepiece, you may be damaging the movement. At Repairs By Post, we provide Balmain watch repairs which will have your watch back up and running in no time at all.

BALMAIN WATCH REPAIR FOR IMPACT DAMAGE

It is always advised that you are cautious when exposing your watch to extreme temperatures. This is because watches can be sensitive to thermal impacts.  It is advised that when wearing your Balmain, try to avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures that are above 60°C or below 0°C.

A few examples of a sudden change in temperature, which may make your watch vulnerable is exposure in a sauna or diving into cold water after being in a climate which has a hot temperature. This type of exposure could damage the movement of your watch.

Make sure that you have your watch sent away for a service if it undergoes violent impact. Repairs by Post recommend that your Balmain watch is checked by a member of our watch specialist team.

WATER RESISTANCE FOR BALMAIN WATCHES

Remember, that water resistance is added to protect your watch. However, it can wear over time. Make sure that your watch is safe in the water; therefore, DO NOT use the watch’s pushers while you are still emerged in water.

If you watch is certified as water-resistant, to avoid water penetration that could result in a break in the mechanics of your watch it is essential that you do not use pushers when the watch is in contact with water.

There is one exception to this rule: If you own the Balmain Sea-Touch model, it will not be affected by this recommendation. This model is specifically designed to be used underwater.

TEMPERATURE

It’s essential you do not expose your BALMAIN watch to sudden temperature changes. When your watch isn’t being worn, store it in a cool dark place such as a drawer. Do not expose your BALMAIN to temperatures that exceed 60 degrees Celsius, or below 10 degrees Celsius as these can damage the workings of the watch. Should your watch suffer extreme temperature exposure; send it for professional watch repair.
