More on Blancpain Le Brassus Watches
Originally founded in 1735, resurrected by Jean Claude Biver in 1983, and acquired by the Swatch Group in 1992, Blancpain has built its reputation on creating some of the best mechanical timepieces in the world and remaining steadfast to the craft of mechanical watchmaking. As far as the caliber of watches the brand can produce, nothing beats the meticulous craftsmanship found in the Le Brassus collection.
About Blancpain Le Brassus Watches
The Le Brassus collection from Blancpain is named after the town in Switzerland where the company was founded, and it has served as a platform for some of their most complicated watches, especially the carousel complications.
This includes skeletonized minute repeaters, perpetual calendar chronographs, and Equation of Time function watches. Additionally, Le Brassus collection watches are often made of precious metals.
History of the Blancpain Le Brassus Collection
It is really with the modern era of Blancpain, starting in 1983, that we see a focus on high-end complicated wristwatches. Up until then, the brand had primarily focused on its tool watches, with the Fifty Fathoms collection being their best seller.
Some of the early Blancpain watches released during this period included an ultra-thin reference, a perpetual calendar, a minute repeater, and a tourbillon, showing off the watchmaking might Blancpain was able to offer.
The Le Brassus collection was added in 2008 as the brand grew, giving a dedicated place for highly complicated watches within the Blancpain product line-up.
How Much Do Blancpain Le Brassus Watches Cost?
Intended to be the best of what Blancpain is capable of, watches in the Le Brassus collection are quite expensive. The ones currently in inventory at Exquisite Timepieces are at the top end of that spectrum as well. Not for the faint of heart, the Le Brassus collection is intended for dedicated collectors willing to allocate large sums towards a great watch.

What's Unique About Blancpain Le Brassus Watches?
With typically larger case sizes (up to 46mm wide) combined with more traditional designs, the idea with the Le Brassus collection is really to show off the watchmaking on display. With references highlighted here containing tourbillons and skeletonized movements, the larger cases allow for more features of the watch to be easily displayed.
The carousel complication is a highlight of the Le Brassus collection, as it also aims to negate the effects of gravity, similar to a tourbillon, but is attached to the gear train at two points (one for the cage and one for the balance spring), where the tourbillon is attached to the gear train at only one.
Blancpain Le Brassus Movements
The movements used in the Le Brassus collection are unique calibers for each reference. Each movement is handmade, finished, and assembled to the highest standards possible. Both automatic and manually wound movements exist within the collection, with the more complicated calibers (tourbillons, carousels, and minute repeaters) being mostly manually wound.
Blancpain Le Brassus Watch Colors
The colors used within the collection are quite conservative, consisting of white and silver tones, with gold tones coming from the skeletonized dial and movement. The focus of the Le Brassus collection is haute horology and not brightly colored dials and straps.
Blancpain Le Brassus Watch Materials
Being a high-end collection, the case materials used for the Le Brassus collection consist of 18k red gold and platinum, with alligator leather straps and buckles that match the watch case material. This is done with the mindset that the best watchmaking deserves to be displayed in the best materials available.
Blancpain Le Brassus Watch Types
The watches in the Blancpain Le Brassus collection are of the large, highly complicated, and traditionally styled variety. They are intended for collectors of mechanical marvels, and designed to focus on those characteristics. Sporty, casual, and even more reserved watches can be found elsewhere within the broader Blancpain brand collection.
Blancpain Le Brassus Watch Complications
Complications within the Le Brassus collection seem to have no limits, with the most understated offerings consisting of perpetual calendar chronographs with the most outrageous being carousel minute repeaters in gem-set cases. There are various combinations of these complications, and some include an additional tourbillon.
Blancpain Le Brassus Sizes
The case sizes seen within the Blancpain Le Brassus collection are quite large, ranging from 42mm up to almost 46mm in diameter. These timepieces are intended for those who are fans of larger watches.
