Conclusion

In the context of modern technological advancement, the mechanical watch is no longer just a timepiece, but a work of art. Expensive watches can be described as mechanical marvels. The pursuit of manual craftsmanship and adherence to watch culture are the reasons for the existence and allure of mechanical watches.

Owning a Blancpain is the dream of many watch enthusiasts. Winding a watch is also a form of communication with the watch. Do you know how to wind a Blancpain watch? Today I will provide you with a detailed introduction.

About Blancpain

Blancpain, founded in 1735, is the oldest Swiss watch brand in history and the world's first registered watch brand. As one of the world's leading mechanical complications watchmakers, Blancpain is also one of the few brands that can design, develop, manufacture, assemble, and sell its watches entirely in-house. Since its inception, the brand has maintained an innovative spirit, pushing the boundaries of watchmaking expertise.

Compared to large watchmakers like Rolex, which produces around 2,000 watches a day, Blancpain produces fewer than 30 watches a day. Each watch is made by a single watchmaker. The meticulously handcrafted details create timepieces with an innovative element while remaining true to the Swiss watchmaking tradition.

How to wind a Blancpain watch?

  1. The majority of Blancpain self-winding watches have a power reserve of 40 to 288 hours. This implies wearing a watch throughout the day in normal activity conditions.
  2. If the movement has stopped, it is best to wind it manually by turning the crown at least 40 times. Manual winding is in the same way as any other watch. This operation provides the watch with the bare minimum of power reserve before replacing it on the wrist.
  3. Models with a calendar that changes around midnight must have a power reserve of at least 20 hours to power the entire mechanism. Otherwise, the watch will likely stop around midnight.

If you are tired of winding your watch manually, or if you own more than one watch, we recommend using a watch winder.

Watch Winders for Blancpain

1. What is a watch winder?

Mechanical watches stop working when they are not worn on a regular basis or when there is insufficient movement. To avoid mechanical watches from not running for an extended period of time and causing damage, watch winders are created.

A watch winder is a watch box that contains a motor for automatically winding high-end mechanical watches. The watch winder has a miniature motor that can be controlled by shifting gears and switches and is powered by a battery or an external power supply. This watch box contains a small rotatable dial that is slowly rotated by the micro motor, creating the effect of automatic winding by simply placing the mechanical watch inside this dial.

2. How to select a watch winder?

There are numerous types of watch winders available in the face of the current market, and choosing a low-quality watch winder undoubtedly destroys the watch. There are many things to note when choosing a good watch winder.

The first and foremost is the direction of rotation and TPD(turns per day). If these do not match your watch, purchasing a watch winder is pointless. The rotation direction is best if it can be clockwise, counterclockwise, or bi-directional all three are available to easily adapt to different watches. The size of the pillow is also very important, the correct size will keep your watch from falling off. You also have to consider its security, portability, etc.
