Pre-Owned Blancpain Watches
Founded in 1735 in Villeret, Switzerland, Blancpain is the oldest watchmaking brand, defining its philosophy and operation. Blancpain has maintained the traditional mechanical movements in its timepieces, with no digital components to date.
Blancpain believes in scarcity bringing value, the reason why they focus on quality to produce only 30 watches every day, making this brand so unique and luxurious to own.
It’s for this reason that Exquisite Timepieces understands that offering used Blancpain watches could help you own one of the rare pieces. We provide different pre-owned Blancpain watches to allow you to find the luxury and the uniqueness you want.
The founder of Blancpain, Jehan-Jacques, was indeed a busy man. Having worked as a school teacher and practiced animal husbandry, he decided to turn his farmhouse's upper floor into a watchmaking workshop.
The family-owned company survived several challenges, including the Napoleonic wars and stiff competition from Quartz that produced very cheap watches at the time, leaving just three (including Blancpain) out of 20 brands to survive the crisis.
In 1932, following the death of the last Blancpain, Frédéric-Emile, the brand's family ownership came to an end after being passed down to the descendants for over 200 years. Betty Fiechter became the first woman CEO and led the watchmaking company along with her nephew Jean-Jacques Fiechter; they worked together until her retirement 20 years later.
In 1961, Blancpain became part of the Societe Suisse pour I’Indusrie Horlogere (SSIH) togeter with OMEGA, Tissot, and Lemania.
In 1982, Jacques Piguet bought Blancpain and made it part of Fredric Piuget’s watchmaking movements. He later hired Jean Claude Biver as the vice-chair of Blancpain. The two, Fredric Piguet and Blancpain, became under joint ownership until 2010 when they officially merged.
In 1992, Blancpain and Fredric Piguet were sold and became a subsidiary to the Swiss Corporation for Microelectronics and Watchmaking Industries (SMH), now the Swatch Group. Ten years later, Marc A. Hayek became the CEO of Blancpain, leading to Fredric Piguet’s absorption within Blancpain in 2010.
The First Fifty Fathoms
The first Fifty Fathoms was the first modern divers watch to be introduced in 1953 and made available to the general public. Therefore, it is the oldest compared to other high-end luxury dive watches like Rolex Submariner and Omega Seamaster.
The first Fifty Fathoms used rubber to make it water-resistant rather than the previous shellac and lead seals used in other models. This new addition required some extra innovation since the rubber was good but fond of slipping away. Jean Jacques Fiechter, the nephew to the first female CEO, Emily Fiechter, designed a new case to accommodate the rubber rings. The rings fitted in a channel in the design and then were pressed down by a metal plate, creating a tight seal.
