Taking this opportunity, Dani García, a Michelin-starred chef, has the opportunity to see the mystery of the Blancpain brand. He said with emotion: “I finally realized how sophisticated and complicated the craftsmanship of the watch is. During the cooking process, I usually make a food with four or five ingredients to create a watch movement. But you need to use hundreds of parts.”

Blancpain Watch has always been loyal to the tradition and has innovated. The innumerable new complex timepieces that have been introduced over the years are the best proof. The time-honored spirit of innovation continues to drive this watch master. It is also this kind of creative spirit that connects this timepiece family with the art of food, and the two are brought together and become natural. As Alain Delamuraz said: “Now, the cooperation between the watchmaking industry and the food industry has become a trend, and Blancpain has been involved in the food industry for 30 years.” Highlights of this cooperation history .
