On Thursday Dec 15th, Blancpain U.S. Brand President Mr. Adam Bossi hosted a special event at the brand’s Madison Avenue boutique with Guitar Aficionado celebrating the artistry of guitars and timepieces, bonded seamlessly by design, craftsmanship and intricate materials.
The event featured 10 classic electric guitar pieces along Blancpain’s most recent and notable collections. Included on display were three legendary guitars made in 1953, an Epiphone Emperor with Amp, a Gibson Les Paul Gold top and a 1953 Fender Telecaster. The year 1953 holds special meaning for Blancpain as it is the year in which the brand launched the Fifty Fathoms watch, the world’s first practical dive watch and one of the brand’s most important pieces.
