Blancpain celebrates Haute Horlogerie and Art de Vivre in Australia

In October, Blancpain celebrated Art de Vivre in Australia with two events held at Relais & Châteaux venues: Tetsuya in the heart of Sydney and Laura in the surroundings of Melbourne. At both gatherings, guests enjoyed a culinary experience while discovering some unique Blancpain timepieces. The attendees had the chance to enjoy a close-up look at – and try on – Blancpain’s finest complication models as well as its latest releases.

On the first evening, Blancpain – in partnership with retailer Swiss Concept – welcomed VIP guests at the Tetsuya restaurant, the only Relais & Châteaux dining establishment in Sydney. Chef Tetsuya Wakuda shared with the guests his passion for his art and the many values a Chef has in common with a watchmaker: passion, innovation and precision.

A few days later, in the picturesque winery of Pt. Leo Estate, Victoria, Blancpain – in partnership with Monards – hosted a refined lunch at the Laura restaurant for VIP guests. In addition to the timepieces on display, the open kitchen provided a chance to admire a live cooking performance by Chef Phil Wood and his team, highlighting the parallels between the Art of Watchmaking and the Art of Living.
