In 1987, an enthusiastic team faced a formidable challenge: to create and develop a timepiece brand that paid homage to the great French couturier, Pierre Balmain. Montres Pierre Balmain was born in the cradle of watchmaking. One thing was clear: Balmain arabesques and elegance had to lie at the heart of all the timepieces. Thus, year after year and collection after collection, Balmain watches faithfully reflect the origins of this prestigious label, with resounding success.From 1987 to 1995, Balmain watches were manufactured under exclusive license by the Swatch Group, which supplied its immense expertise and state-of-the-art watchmaking technology to the brand and the Parisian fashion house founded in 1945 by fashion designer Pierre Balmain. Balmain is a member of the Swatch Group Ltd, the World’s leading manufacturer of horological products.
