Blanchefontaine, a Swiss watchmaking company, was founded in 1998 by Jean-François Muller. The firm is located in the heart of the Canton of Jura in Switzerland, recognized as being the real center of expertise and know-how in the watchmaking industry. For more than 10 years, the company has been developing and producing watches for international companies, associations, agencies and public sector.
Blanchefontaine history is closely linked to that of its founder, Jean-François Muller. Immersed from his earliest years into the watchmaking universe of his grand father’s workshop, he quickly choose to link his professional activity to his passion. He began his apprenticeship in Undervelier at the foot of the Jurassian Mountains, and then he continued his training in various local watchmaking firms where he developed his know-how and his skills. In 1989, he became director of Gigandet SA, a 50 years experienced company in creation and production of Swiss watches, which exported more than 300’000 watches worldwide yearly.
In 1998, he decided to create his own private label organization. This enabled him to work in a free and independent way, surrounded by dynamic and reactive partners knowing how to meet the expectations of demanding clients. He choose to call this new challenge “Blanchefontaine” which reminded him of the moments spent during his childhood looking at the seven white fountains springs near he used to live. He set up his business in Bonfol, in the Ajoie, the village where Louis Chevrolet lived before crossing the Atlantic to succeed in a brilliant career as an entrepreneur and racing car driver. 12 years later, Blanchefontaine continue to stand by its values and has developed a solid network of skills in development and production of custom made Swiss watches respecting confidentiality.
