The new Shop-in-Shop was opened on the occasion of the remodeling of the Daimaru Kobe Department Store’s 8th floor luxury watch shop area on June 25th 2016 and occupies 24.7 square meters. It provides an ideal setting in which to admire Blancpain masterpieces such as the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, the Quantième Complet as well as the Ladybird in the Women Collection.
This new Shop-in-Shop reflects Blancpain’s proud history and its commitment to the expression “Innovation is Our Tradition.” Crafted by a skilled cabinet-maker from the Vallée de Joux, the interior design is imbued with the regional heritage and the Blancpain horological know-how perpetuated for more than 270 years. Noble woodwork, refined moldings, along with pure streamlined furniture and displays all combine to ensure visitors enjoy a warm and cozy aesthetic.
Throughout its history, Blancpain has distinguished itself by its capacity to develop exceptional movements that have made their mark on successive eras. In-house development and production of the components and tools; manual assembly of each movement by a single watchmaker; refined and entirely hand-crafted finishing right the way through to the tiniest hidden details: Blancpain's strength lies in its ability to create timepieces that are both innovative and respectful of the noble Swiss watchmaking tradition.
