Swiss In The Mediterranean-blancpain Cannes Watch Store Reopened

Located next to the charming blue coast, Cannes, a famous diving resort, has many world-famous hotels, and its historic buildings are scattered. The Blancpain boutique, which has been located here since 2002, has been elegantly reopened after careful refurbishment, further enhancing the popularity of the Blancpain brand on the Mediterranean coast, as well as the global retail network of 35 boutiques.

   Walking on the seafront promenade and bathing in the cozy sun, visitors can deeply experience Blancpain’s watchmaking spirit and brand culture inherited from the Swiss origin. The exclusive store is decorated with delicate and noble cherry wood, inspired by the mysterious area where Blancpain watchmakers show superb craftsmanship: the architecture of the brand workshop. The timeless and elegant interior design complements the boutique’s classic Villeret collection. The exclusive store with high-quality texture is not only born for Blancpain, but also creates a display stage for the world’s top watchmaking art.

   Facing the Blue Coast, it is the ideal scene to indulge in the legend of Fifty Fathoms. Since the Fifty Fathoms was officially launched and put into use in early 1953, this series has carried Blancpain’s constant passion for the underwater world. The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watch has accompanied divers and underwater photographers on their adventures, discovering the fragile beauty of the ocean, exploring precious knowledge of the ocean, and launching activities to support and protect this charming underwater world

   The release of the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe submersible watch makes the Fifty Fathoms series fuller and more complete. The new Fifty Fathoms Caphe deep submersible junior watch with three hours, minutes and seconds, gray ceramic case, blue ceramic bezel and blue dial, perfectly inherits the traditional spirit of the Fifty Fathoms watch. Shop at the Percane store.

   Throughout the history of the brand, Blancpain has designed and developed a number of outstanding movements, leaving a unique mark of its own in the long period of change. This precious legacy contributed to the renaissance of complication watches in the 1980s and remains the main source of inspiration for brand watchmakers and artisans today. Over the past decade, Blancpain’s Le Brassus watchmaking workshop has been adhering to the spirit of innovation, releasing a total of no less than 35 new movements, and assembling the brand’s proud works. The technicality and creativity they showed impressed people and added a deeper intrinsic charm to Blancpain watches.
