The history of Balmain’s ascension to the world clock Olympus began in 1987, when the exclusive Swatch Group Corporation acquired exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute designer chronometers of the same name. Even at the dawn of the brand’s appearance, Pierre Balmain’s concept was based on originality and elegance, which were fully embodied in the company’s products by its brilliant creator – French fashion designer Pierre Balman.
The brand’s founder’s talent was so objective to society that his creations in the field of pret-a-porter quickly gained popularity among the stars and secular people such as Vivien Leigh, Brigitte Bardot, Marlene Dietrich, Jennifer Jones, Jean-Paul Belmondo. It’s no wonder that when one of the priority directions of this brand became the manufacture of exclusive watches – this product almost instantly began to enjoy a dizzying success.
Since 1993, balmain watches possessed a distinctive sign on their dial – the firm symbolism of PIERRE BALMAIN, made by the unique Arabesque pattern (a complex medieval oriental ornament). Only after the Swatch Group finally bought out all the rights to the trade name of the watch, and in 2001 it was decided to rename the brand in a simpler name for the customer – luxury chronometers were produced under the brand name Balmain, under which they continue to be produced and in our days .
Despite the fact that all the chronometers of this brand are invariably met by consumers on “hurray”, the special interest and demand of buyers are such delightful collections as:
Balmain Chain is a limited exclusive collection of chronometers made from high-strength materials and equipped with a long-lasting quartz movement. This fact is confirmed by the fact that balmain watches have the marking “Swiss Made”, which indicates that these products either include authentic Swiss mechanisms, or were produced in Switzerland.
Balmain Chrono Lady – a unique series of women’s high-precision chronographs Balma, produced in accordance with all current trends in the field of modern watch design. A distinctive feature of the models of this line is their elegant minimalistic design, which, meanwhile, does not deprive accessories of functionality.
Balmain Elysees – a stylish and elegant collection, which for quite some time, according to experts, is the hallmark of the house of Balman. The serious demand for the models of this line is largely due to the fact that one of the flagships – the premier models of this series adorns the wrists of the winners of the world beauty contests. By the way, one of the most famous envoys is the winner of Miss Universe 2007 Christina Rigozzi.
Balmain Madrigal – an extraordinary line of chronometers, which in their quality and unsurpassed accuracy surpass the watches of famous Swiss and Asian brands. Introduced in them typically French elegance and minimalism allows these models to successfully fit into any image customary to its owner – whether it is a strict classic, democratic unisex or sophisticated modernity.
