On the threshold of the 21st century, Blancpain's philosophy remains rooted
in a deep respect for tradition and contemporary values.
"In my mind, Blancpain has always been rather revolutionary... a little bit crazy,
a bit of an adventurer. We have always tried to be different, to become more innovative, to try things that have not been tried or been achieved in the past."
Marc A. Hayek,
CEO of Blancpain.
