Introduction

Best known as the oldest surviving watchmaker in the world, Blancpain’s legacy as one of the finest in their industry is certainly without question. Having been revived in the 1980s following a decade-long dormancy, Blancpain has grown in stature as one of the most respected watchmakers in the world. With an undeterred focus on mechanical movements, Blancpain’s timepieces represent the purest form of horology possible, a tenet of Blancpain that continues to feature in their timepieces to this day, much like in this Leman GMT Dual Time. Launched in 2002, the Leman collection merged a casual sense of style with Blancpain’s reserved aesthetic and classical inspiration. Embodying this casual style, the Leman GMT Dual Time we have here is made of stainless steel and features a 38mm case with a beautiful white dial with a dual time subdial and an AM/PM indicator at 9 o’clock.

THE DIAL

Featuring a bright white dial, the Leman GMT Dual Time's display is rather reserved, in keeping with Blancpain's typical aesthetic. This is achieved through its lack of contrasting colors and the Roman numerals used in its dual time subdial.

THE CASEBACK

Offered only on special order, this example features the Khanjar Dagger etched across its caseback.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

Watch is in very good overall condition. Case exhibits typical wear for a watch of this age with slightly soft edges and superficial scratches as shown. The Khanjar engraving on the caseback is protected by clear plastic and appears sharp and crisp.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, the exotic skin strap will have to be removed.

Our Perspective

A wonderfully casual design, the Leman collection has enabled Blancpain to branch out from their typically reserved designs and create timepieces that feature Blancpain's excellent craftsmanship, but in timepieces that offer everyday utility, much like this Leman GMT Dual Time.
