September 26, 2005 There aren’t too many technology companies that can claim 270 years of continuous trading, research and development. To celebrate the 270th anniversary of the creation of the brand, master watchmaker Blancpain is unveiling an exceptional set of eight examples of the art of horology. The history of watchmaking is studded with a certain number of momentous events that have left an indelible imprint on the world of timekeeping. Produced in a strictly limited edition of eight, the Apotheosis Temporis set encompasses the full wealth of know-how patiently accumulated over the years by the Manufacture in Le Brassus. It is also a tribute to all the watchmakers who, over the centuries, have contributed to perpetuating these traditional professions. Eight timepieces, eight demonstrations of know-how, testifying to Blancpain’s total mastery in the field of horological complications. United for the first time within a splendid collector’s set, these complications present the complete range of mechanical, technical and human genius which takes the finest demonstrations of the art of watchmaking to new peaks of accomplishment.
