Bianchet is a new business specialising in sporty tourbillons, not dissimilar in style to Richard Mille pieces, but offered at a fraction of the price.

Its first watch, presented at Baselworld 2019, was the G5000 Active Tourbillon with a price tag of under CHF 30,000.

The watchmaker followed up with a version in a titanium case, the Tourbillon B 1.618 Openwork (price CHF 44,500) and most recently the same piece in carbon fiber.

Bianchet says it took three years to develop its first watch, but within a year it was competing at the GPHG Awards.

The architecture of Bianchet’s first in-house skeleton tourbillon caliber B 1.618 is inspired by the work of Italian mathematician Fibonacci on the golden ratio 1.618 and seen in its three-dimensional design of interlacing arches and circles that should, according to Fibonacci, evoke a deep sense of harmony.

The trick Bianchet has pulled off is to bring sophisticated milling processes and hand finishing to a watch that is sporty and luxurious enough to be worn on the wrist of a top professional in golf, tennis or polo.

Each watch is entirely made and hand-finished in Switzerland.

Whether in titanium or carbon fiber, the watch is light and strong, capable of resisting shocks of up to 6000G, according to the company, and has an incredible power reserve of 110 hours.
