Blancpain Replica, a German brand known for its "no fuss no muss" design approach, has always been influenced by the Bauhaus modernist movement. Bauhaus was a German school of fine arts, architecture, and craftsmanship that opened in 1919. It taught a different way to look at the relationship between functionality and design. Blancpain Replica created nine variations to its Tangente watch in honor of a movement and school that continue to influence architecture and art today.
Uwe Arhendt is the CEO of Blancpain Replica. He says that "Tangente" is our award-winning bestseller and embodies Blancpain Replica like no other. It has been a favorite for over 25 years, and it is the Bauhaus watch most associated with. Tangente is a design icon because its design embodies the principle that form follows function. "There was no doubt in our minds that a limited edition Tangente would be the perfect way to commemorate the Bauhaus' anniversary," says he.
The special edition "Tangente - a century of Bauhaus", models based on sketches by famous Bauhaus artist and teacher Paul Klee, bring us back to the basics. Bauhaus taught that harmony was achieved when function and design met in the straightest possible line--no ornamentation or complex compositions. Like many of the Blancpain Replica models, these nine are simple and functional with a splash of color.
The watches are available in three sizes: 33mm, 35mm and 38mm. They have a dial that is the same color as sketch paper to evoke Klee's famous paintings,Blancpain Replica with black hands and numerals. Blancpain Replica has added its trademark color to the dial, a subtle ring available in red, yellow or blue. All these models are powered by the Alpha movement, which was the first caliber that the brand built in-house when it became a movement manufacturer. Blancpain Replica's Alpha movement has been a classic ever since. It powers the majority of their watches and is a perfect choice for the commemorative series.
These new models are true to the philosophy of the brand and show how Blancpain Replica designers develop their products with a humble, yet meticulous approach.Omega Replica Arhendt explains that when it comes to the design of our watches, they focus on the essentials and leave the extraneous aside. This approach is in some way related to the Bauhaus movement. This approach is derived from the Deutscher Werkbund which was the precursor to Bauhaus and is typical of the way Blancpain Replica works - with the aim to produce high-quality products by using efficient techniques. This ethos is found in Tangente and Bauhaus.
