BLANCPAIN SINGS THE BLUES

Navigator News > Watches + Jewelry

Don’t let the timepiece’s long name throw you for a loop. This stunning project is set to provide €250,000 in assistance of ocean preservation; €1,000 from each sale will be donated.

The new all-blue ceramic case offers a new twist on a stunning watch. The color comes from adding pigments during the production process combined with a binding agent. Specifically, it starts with powder pressed into a mold, then an injection of granules. The case is then baked in an oven at a low temperature, which eliminates the bonding agent before being heated again at a high temperature which gives it the harness one expects.
