Blancpain maintenance and care tips

BLANCPAIN WATCH CLEANING

Wearing your Blancpain watch naturally leads to a build-up of natural residue, but this can be remedied through gently cleaning your watch with a clean toothbrush and liquid soap. Failing to do this might lead your steel strap to oxidise and irritate the skin. This method should only be used for Blancpain steel straps.

If your Blancpain has a leather strap, it mustn’t get wet. Water damage on leather leads to loss of function and style. Repairs by Post can offer Blancpain watch strap replacement and Blancpain clasp replacement if your strap suffers damage. Repairs by Post also offer Blancpain watch polishing too.

A replacement watch clasp saves you having to replace the entire strap. We use either manufacturer’s original parts or equivalents where suitable. We match the clasp to your strap, fit it, and before we return it to you, we will assess your watch to see if any other work is required, such as loose links or scratched glass.

AVOID SHOCKS TO YOUR WRIST

Shocks can cause damage to your watch and reduce its lifecycle. Always remove your watch before undertaking any sporting activity; this includes golf. The vibrations of jolting movements can damage the delicate inner components of your Blancpain watch.

AVOID RAPID TEMPERATURE CHANGES

Leaving your watch open to sudden changes of temperature can lead to damage, when not being worn keep your timepiece in a cool dark place, such as a drawer. Avoid leaving it in direct sunlight at temperatures above 60 degrees cause damage to the mechanism.

AVOID WATER AND DUST DAMAGE

If you Blancpain is coming into contact with water, ensure the crown is fully depressed to limit the chance of water infiltration. Should your Blancpain watch suffer water damage send it to Repairs by Post immediately for Blancpain watch repair?

AVOID CHLORINATED AND SALTWATER

Tap water and dust can cause damage to your Blancpain, but the infiltration of chlorinated or saltwater is especially dangerous. These liquids corrode the delicate intricacies of the mechanism. Always remove your Blancpain watch when around these liquids as a precaution.

History of Blancpain watches

Since 1735, Blancpain has been contributing to the development of mechanical watchmaking, while ensuring conserving the traditional skills of its founder. This makes Blancpain the world’s oldest watch brand. Every watchmaker generally has his set of self-made tools that he uses throughout his entire career, and we endeavour to upkeep their exacting standards with every Blancpain watch repair we undertake. Repairs by Post are specialists in vintage watch repairs and can restore your antique Blancpain watch.

The 1700S

The Brand was conceived in the early 18th century when Jehan- Jacques Blancpain created a workshop above his house in Bernese Jura, Switzerland.

From the beginning, the Brand was successful and remained so to this day. The heirs of Jehan-Jacque ensured the Brand continued to develop after his passing.

The 1800S

By 1815 Blancpain’s great-grandson was the head of the family business, he was modernised production methods, and the once rudimentary workshop was now able to produce watches in numbers. Frederic-Louis Blancpain was the innovator behind replacing the crown wheel mechanism with a cylinder replacement.

The 1850S

During this time industrialisation threatened to take over the watchmaking industry, prices fell dramatically, and many watch workshops were fated to close. Blancpain challenged this threat by building a two-storey factory that could compete with modern American ways. The Brand modernised their top of the range products and managed to be one of the only surviving watch brands in the area. The delicate mechanisms that go into Blancpain watches are what make them so unique; if your watch is not working correctly send it for Blancpain watch servicing.

The 1900S

By the time we reach 1926, Blancpain had partnered with John Harwood and began making automatic watches. Four years later, in 1930, Blancpain had evolved the watches to fit a smaller size, and thus the “Rolls” was created; the world’s first-ever ladies’ automatic watch.

In the 1930s the Blancpain family ended their management of the Brand after two centuries. The families closest members of staff bought over the business and through law were forced to change the name from Blancpain. The name was changed o Rayville S.A, succ. De Blancpain”. Though the name was changed, the identity held fast thanks to the upkeep of the brands manufacturing ethos. One of the buyers, Betty Fiechter, remained the director until 1950, where she and her nephew brought fresh energy to the Brand. Repairs by post offer all types of restoration and servicing for Blancpain watches, this includes Blancpain polishing and Blancpain watch battery replacement.

The 1950S

One of the Brand’s greatest successes was the Fifty Fathoms which they created in 195. It was designed for the combat swimmers of the French Navy who needed a watch a superior watch for their underwater activities. To ensure that the case itself would be highly water-resistant, Fiechter elected to incorporate a screw-on case back. To avoid a patent on screw-down crowns, he conceived a double “O-ring” system. The watch also enjoyed automatic winding to prevent the crown being pulled out.

In 1956 Blancpain created the Ladybird timepiece, the smallest round movement of the time. 2016 marks the fifty-year anniversary of this creation. To mark this, the Brand launched a 60-piece limited edition to mark its birthday. Limited edition watches are previous to their owners; why not send your timepiece for Blancpain watch cleaning to revive it?

The 1960S

By the end of the 1950s, the Brand was producing over 10,000 watches per year and meeting this demand; the company had to become part of the SSIH. The Brand joined greats such as Omega and Tissot. Repairs by Post are masters of all watch brands and offer Omega watch repair and Tissot watch repair.

The 1970S

By 1971 the Brand was producing 220,000 watches, though in 1973 the watch industry faced a significant blow as the Quartz crisis hit and the fall of the dollar against the Swiss Franc limited export. On top of this, there was a worldwide recession in 1973, thanks to the oil crisis.

The 1980S

The crisis forced the SSIH to reduce production and sell half of their assets – which included Rayville-Blancpain in 1983. The company was sold to Jean-Claude Biver and continued to trade under the name Blancpain SA.

The selling of the Brand opened a new chapter as until then many of their movements were sold to be used in other Brand’s watches. The Brand decided to commit itself to their technology and “grand complication” technology. They reverted to their traditional style and thwarted quartz movements. Blancpain continued to revive mechanical watchmaking and aimed to bring the past to life through these conventional methods. Blancpain makes no quartz watches. However, Repairs by Post offer mechanical to quartz conversion on all other vintage watches.

One of the best examples of their craftsmanship is 1735, a hugely complex complication which encompasses: Minute repetition, Tourbillon, Perpetual date, Moon phase calendar and Flyback chronograph.

Did you know that each Blancpain 1735 watch takes one year to assemble?

The 2000S

Since 2002 Marc A. Hayek has been the Chairman and CEO of the Brand. The Brand continues to innovate and give us world exclusive showcases and patents.

In 2008 Blancpain revived their famous Karrusel complication, a complication over 100 years old. The Brand holds to its motto of bringing innovation to tradition in this example.

The Brand has also revived their Fifty Fathoms collection with a new as has the Villeret and L-evolution collections. Each with the same consistency of brand values of authenticity, passion and emotion.
