Blancpain has a long history of cooperation with the famous international haute cuisine competition-the Bocuse d’ Or World Cooking Competition. Today, Blancpain is helping the 2016 Bogus World Cooking Competition again. This year, Mr. Filipe Fonseca Pinheiro, the foreman chef from the Hôtel de Ville de Crissier restaurant, won the coveted international culinary championship. As the official timepiece of the Bogus World Culinary Competition, Blancpain is proud to present the brand’s iconic watch, the Fifty Fathoms Bathhe diving watch and the brand wall clock, as a noble tribute to excellent cooking.
Blancpain and the art of living
As a Swiss watch brand with a long history, Blancpain has always been passionate about the exploration and pursuit of fine cuisine. Blancpain is convinced that there is a lot of similarity between haute cuisine and traditional watchmaking, and this philosophy keeps the brand and fine cuisine close. And this close relationship stems from the fact that both have the same passion and master the relevant craftsmanship. Only the three qualities of passion, emotion and sincerity can capture the fruits of success.
In recent years, Blancpain has continuously pioneered and innovated in the field of gastronomy, and has cooperated with more than 100 Michelin-starred restaurants. Many Michelin-starred chefs are also friends and loyal customers of the brand. In 2010, Blancpain also participated in the “SWISS Taste of Switzerland” promotion. During the three-month period, Blancpain appeared in the cabin of the Swiss National Airline and participated in the Vaud cuisine and A watchmaking excellence product promotion program that showcases the beauty of Switzerland. At the same time, based on the common concept of high-end living art, Blancpain naturally became the main partner of high-end hotels in the watchmaking industry, and cooperated with the two luxury hotel groups of Relais & Châteaux and Leading Hotels of the World (referred to as LHW). The winner of the ‘Best Hotel in the World’ awards timepieces to reward their outstanding performance.
