Blancpain Métiers d'Art Binchotan - Japanese art tradition masterfully immortalized
When the top of Swiss engineering meets over 400 years of Japanese craftsmanship, an incomparable symbiosis of precision and beauty emerges. With its solid carbon dial, outstanding 13R3A hand-wound movement and 18-karat gold case, the Blancpain Métiers d'Art Binchotan sets new technical and artistic standards. Rarely has the splendour of a luxury model been so unrivalled.
1300°C for perfect hardness and smoothness
Golden embellishments on hand-engraved charcoal - the dial of the 42 mm large time indicator undoubtedly forms its optical highlight. The so-called Binchotan charcoal is the result of a complex manufacturing process in which the bark of the Japanese Ubume oak is slowly burned in a clay oven. The heating up to 1300°C and the subsequent rapid cooling ensures a smooth, steel-hard surface. In order to ensure that the Blancpain Métiers d'Art Binchotan has both a noble shine and outstanding durability, the material, now cut into fine slices, is provided with the resin of the Asian lacquer tree, polished and finally decorated with engravings and appliqués by the craftsmen in Le Brassus.
This unique masterpiece is framed by an ultra-thin rose gold case, only 10.55 mm in height. Complemented by a soft alligator leather strap, the Blancpain Binchotan guarantees excellent comfort and elegant looks. As a lover of Japanese traditions, you will also appreciate these benefits in the Métier d'Art Shakudo Collection, which is based on a millennia-old alloy of gold and copper.
Maximum technical performance in the smallest of spaces
Just as breathtaking as the creative side are the mechanical aspects of this watch from the Métiers d'Art Series: Sensational 192-hour power reserve and 190 individual parts combined in a calibre height of only 4.3 mm to form a superlative power pack. Thanks to a modern silicon hairspring, effectively protected against magnetic fields, the manually wound movement can be admired through the glass base of the Binchotan. This provides a clear view of the detailed decorations as well as a compact power reserve indicator.
The ingenious design of the Blancpain Binchotan can look back at almost 300 years of company history. Founded in 1735 by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain, the manufactory achieved worldwide fame through the constant development of new complications. In particular, the tourbillon-like carrousel used in the Spécialités Tourbillon Carrousel is testimony to the finest watchmaking art of our time.
