The Blonie watch brand is one of the Polish watch companies that has achieved worldwide success. By designing its models in the style of the 1950s and 1960s, each watch is an extraordinary source of nostalgia for a bygone style, while keeping the design elegant and subtle.
Blonie a Polish watch brand
The origins of the Blonie brand date back to the 1950s. In 1956, at the highest level of power in Poland at that time, a decision was made to start manufacturing wristwatches. In turn, the market debut was in 1960 and the Poznan International Fair. The first Blonie watches were produced entirely using Soviet parts, while the manufacturing site was a former match factory in Blonie. Over time, production developed to the point where they began making their own mechanism parts. Over the decade of operation, the brand created about 1.2 million watches. Among the most popular series and models, it is worth mentioning the "Bałtyk", "Dukat" and "Lech".
For various reasons, production was halted in the 1970s. It was only in 2014 that the current owners of the Blonie brand decided to resurrect the former legend. As they explain themselves, they did it for 3 reasons: passion for watches, love for Polish brands and the desire to create their own product. They are worthy heirs of a brand that went through a lot during the communist era - in contrast, they don't use Soviet parts, but top-class mechanisms from Switzerland and Japan. Today, Blonie is made up of young, creative designers who, inspired by the style of the original models, create watches that are classically elegant, but nevertheless tinged with modern touches.
Exceptional quality in limited series - choose Polish Blonie watches.
Each Blonie watch undergoes a three-stage inspection, and is additionally carefully checked by a Polish watchmaker, who regulates the precision of the mechanism's gait. Blonie models are produced in strictly limited series, each of which was created to commemorate important events or people. The BH300 collection pays tribute to Polish pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain. Among other things, these models feature an original pendulum in the form of a Lancaster aircraft, which is visible through the glass lid. Also the limited edition watches of the Ducat series are stylistically reminiscent of the first models of the Blonie brand, and the interior of the automatic mechanism clearly suggests what kind of production these models are of thanks to the maintenance of the red and white color scheme.
Błonie in tribute to the distinguished from Squadron 300 - Błonie BH300 series
The Blonie brand also remembered the aviators from the Polish squadrons that fought over Great Britain. While the legendary 303 Squadron has been commemorated many times, Blonie has devoted attention to the 300 Squadron, which is represented through the Blonie BH300 series. As one might expect, the collection is stylistically based on the look of aircraft flight clocks. The subdued color scheme, which is a combination of beiges and browns, perfectly fits the atmosphere of the previous era, while being a wonderful commemoration of the heroic aviators.
