Blancier Crazy Planet

Posted on 31 March 2008 by John Biggs

I’m assuming the watch doesn’t really spin like a Looney Tune on drugs, but here’s Blancier’s latest creation, the Crazy Planet with a clever external gear system that adds a bit of cool to the beefy three-handed design. More news on pricing and availability as we get it, but Blancier has been pumping out the hits for years now. Great stuff.

Blancier Handmade Watches is proud to present the latest creation of its
Manufacture Lottermann & Söhne from the German city of Mannheim.

With “Crazy Planet” – developed and produced entirely in house – Blancier is once again introducing a watch of unparalleled world class.

The most important wheels of the Crazy Planet are laid out in a planet orbit
formation. In normal mechanical watches, all wheels are invisible, hidden under the watch face. Blancier has made wheels visible by displaying the workings on top of the watch face.

image004.jpgBlancier just launched a 42mm and 55mm Pilot’s watch that looks sexy as all get out.

Big is beautiful”, and that is why Blan cier has now designed a watch with a diameter of 55mm! Such a watch is worn low on the wrist, which is why the winder is positioned on the left side of the watch face.

Blancier BWT 1: An Amazing New Worldtimer

Posted on 31 May 2007 by John Biggs

WWR fave Blancier just launched an amazing new world timer. This is a fully manufacture movement and, as such, costs over $20,000. Gah!!!! Trying to figure out how it works.

Worldtimers? There are a great many worldtimers. Almost every respected watch brand has such a model in its collection. In reality, these watches could only show the various time zones of the world in approximate terms… until now.
The master craftsmen of Lottermann & Söhne from the Germany city of Mannheim pre­sent the Blancier Worldtimer 1. Their self-designed mechanical timepiece shows all 39 of the world’s time zones at a glance. Behind the beautiful harmony of the colourful yet subtle watch face is the mechanical movement which took two years to develop.

Blancier Poker Face

Posted on 23 October 2006 by John Biggs

unknown-1.jpgBlancier has done it again with the Poker Face, a new face for their do-it-yourself line of timepieces. The watch face features card pips and you can even get your lucky number engraved on the crown. Mine would be 3,044,223,332. They would need to add a big crown.

In other news, Blancier is also planning a diver. Now that’s even cooler.
