A passion for artistic perfection - Blancpain Métiers d'Art Damasquinée
In the Métiers d'Art Damasquinée, the Swiss high-end manufacturer Blancpain combines modern watchmaking with a millennia-old tradition of art: damascening. Discovered in China, it combines golden accents and powerful colours to create a spectacular overall picture. Experience unmatched individuality and mechanical perfection in the royal class of horology.
Unparalleled masterpieces with historical heritage
At the beginning of each damascening process, a detailed drawing is made, on the basis of which fine indentations are later carved into the surface. The next step is to hammer in thin gold or other precious metal fibres, which remain in the desired indentation and, thanks to careful smoothing and polishing, obtain a remarkable shine. In Le Brassus, Blancpain's hometown, the process was used for the first time in watchmaking after its journey through the cultures of India, Persia and Spain, and the Damasquinée stands out impressively from the crowd.
In the style of a historical work of art, the 45 mm large time display enjoys a magnificent frame: the timeless case of the Damasquinée is made of 18 carat rose gold, while the slim 8.3 mm height ensures excellent comfort and a dynamic appearance. The masterpiece thus shares the advantages of the impressive Shakudo Collection and the Binchotan Series, which is a well-deserved homage to Japan's traditional craftsmanship.
Mechanical Excellence from the Vallée de Joux
The elaborate design of the Damasquinée dial is contrasted by a detailed hand-wound movement on the inside. Visible through the large sapphire crystal back, the caliber 15B impresses with its outstanding numbers: The 117 individual parts can be placed at a height of just 2.2 mm and provide the Damasquinée with a power reserve of 40 hours. Are you looking for an even more powerful drive? The noble models of the Métiers d'Art 8 Jours Series have a phenomenal endurance of 196 hours.
But no matter which Métiers d'Art you prefer: All the works of art in the collection look back on almost 300 years of history from the cradle of horology. Founded in Villeret in 1735, from the outset Blancpain has specialised in advanced complications and to this day has pushed the boundaries of what can be mechanically achieved.
