Faqs

Why does a watch need regular servicing?

The maintenance cycle of a mechanical watch is more frequent due to the great number of points that require oiling. The fact that there are more oiling points increases the risk that the oil may dry out in one or more places, causing friction and reducing the water-resistance of your watch.

What is a tourbillon?

The tourbillon compensates for running errors due to gravity by mounting the balance wheel in a rotating cage. Equipped with a tourbillon, your watch runs with greater accuracy.

How should I care for my Blancpain watch?

A Blancpain watch is a piece of high precision and technology, therefore is important to respect the instructions in the manual when manipulating it. Non-use will affect the watch and you should service it regularly. For best care, avoid shocks to the wrist.

What other complications do Blancpain watches offer?

Blancpain collections include several complications, from perpetual calendars and moon-phase indications to minute-repeaters, carrousels and flyback chronographs.

Can I buy a Blancpain watch from your website?

We believe the purchase of a luxury watch to be a personal experience, which is why we recommend seeing the piece in person. You can find the collections we carry at any of our locations, Westime Beverly Hills and Sunset in Los Angeles, CA, Westime La Jolla in San Diego, CA and Westime Miami in Florida.

Brand Heritage

Westime

The tradition of innovation Blancpain has been making mechanical watches that set standards of excellence since 1735. A custodian of watchmaking tradition, Blancpain nevertheless seeks to surprise with its spirit of innovation and taste for the provocative. At Blancpain, respect for our own watchmaking tradition is not felt as a barrier to innovation. On the contrary, the past history of the Manufacture of Le Brassus is an inexhaustible source of ideas. Taking it as inspiration for pushing back frontiers is an ongoing challenge in our company. Boldness and provocation Armed with its mastery of the basic stages of watch production, Blancpain is free to follow byways, which it does with enthusiasm. This taste for boldness and provocation finds expression in the latest creations of the brand.

Westime

The creation of original products goes hand in hand with the quest for perfection of line. A Blancpain watch is more than the fruit of technical achievement. It is conceived from the start as an object of grace; a moment of pure emotion. Top-of-range quality The Blancpain Manufacture pursues a rigorous quality policy designed to produce the best possible watches, designed and assembled entirely in Switzerland. This continual aspiration towards top-quality work and service is embodied in every man and woman in the company, in the workshops of the Joux Valley, just as in Blancpain’s boutiques around the world.
