Buy certified Blancpain Leman watches online


Headquartered in Paudex, Blancpain have worked their way back into the upper echelons of Haute Horlogerie with high quality timepieces. It is therefore unsurprising that Blancpain named one of its most popular series after the nearby Lac Léman (Lake Geneva), highlighting the company’s connection to the place in which this unique success story started: the Blancpain Leman.


The Blancpain Leman convinces across the board


Visual and technical characteristics of the Leman


The Leman series from Blancpain includes models equipped with a flyback or GMT alarm function. Visually speaking, the models look similar to one another other with their terraced-slope-style cases, which are remarkably flat despite complicated movements.

Another standout feature is the X71 stainless steel bracelet. Those who are already familiar with Blancpain watches will likely know that it is the same bracelet used for certain Fifty Fathoms models. The joining together of the individual links by screws makes the bracelet very resistant. So if you are faced with the decision to invest in a pre-owned Blancpain Leman, you can do so in good faith, as the models are designed with durability in mind.

Naturally, the thought that stainless steel models may be too heavy when worn is something that comes up frequently. However, fear not as there are two counterpoints to this for still buying a Blancpain Leman: on the one hand, Blancpain has ensured the dimensions of the Leman series are quite understated with 38 mm and 40 mm diameters, and on the other hand the ergonomic shape of the buckle and strap lugs provides extremely high wearing comfort. These features alone make the Blancpain Leman a comfortable everyday watch. But Blancpain don’t do things in half measures: to round off the iconic Leman, the models have been fitted with the in-house calibre 69F8. This gives the models an adequate power reserve of 40 hours at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The movement features three totalisers and a flyback function that makes start-stop time measurements very easy.

The history of the Leman

In 1996, a legend was born: the Blancpain Leman entered the world of watches. The distinctive features of this series were its dynamic appearance and the manufactory calibre. It was an instant success with watch lovers worldwide and marked another successful stage in establishing the company in the highest ranks of Swiss watchmaking.
