Inside Blancpain’s Double Barrel Calibre 1151

by J.Edwards

A new assembly video, of Blancpain’s calibre 1151, has recently been posted on Alliance Horlogère. Based on the Frederic Piguet 1150, it is a double barrel, automatic wristwatch calibre with a 100 hour power reserve. Frederic Piguet itself is now defunct, having been fully integrated by the Swatch Group into Blancpain’s production chain several years ago, similar to the amalgamation of chronograph movement maker, Lemania, into Breguet by the Group a few years before, but the legacy of these manufacturers’ work remains.

The complete assembly video checks in at just under 10 minutes of viewing time.
