The cherry wood used for the furniture and the display window design draw their inspiration from the architecture of the workshops and master-watchmaker’s workbenches. The store will house an array of Blancpain timepieces and all the collections from Villeret to Fifty Fathoms, along with models developed exclusively for the boutiques.
