Introduction To The Naming Rules Of Blancpain Watches

Blancpain is one of the world’s top watch brands, and many watch friends like this brand very much. However, Blancpain’s numerous watch series make people look dazzled. If you can understand its clear rules and meaning, it would be better. Yes, today’s watch home is to introduce the naming rules of Blancpain watches for everyone, let’s start learning!

   In fact, Blancpain’s naming rules are similar to those of OMEGA. They are divided into three sections and each section represents a different meaning. The most common naming format is ‘xxxx-xxxx-xx’. Of course, some products belong to special series or upgraded products, so they will be written in another way.
What the first paragraph means
   First we look at Blancpain’s standard naming convention ‘xxxx-xxxx-xx’. The first two digits represent the product series:
