The name ‘Fifty Fathom’ is derived from the parameters of water resistance rating whereby a fathom is considered to be equivalent to six feet. This stunning collection by Blancpain, in its essence, represents the brand’s passion for the underwater fun that originally got expressed in the year 1953 with the birth of the first modern diver’s timepiece.
The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection men’s watch 5015D-1140-52B is solely designed for underwater fun and adventure. This exclusive timepiece flaunts robust and tough design elements particularly meant for athletes and swimmers. The watch is deliberately crafted of a satin finished stainless steel case encircling a royal metallic blue dial. This extraordinary dial displays a subtle sunburst guilloche textured centre. Furthermore, the designing of the dial is also done with Arabic numeral hour markers having a luminous fill and beautifully appliquéd brushed steel rimmed hour indexes. On the other hand, the hour and minute hands are also designed with polished steel having a luminous fill, while the second’s hand is made of scintillating red-tipped brushed steel. The bezel is also etched out with radiant Arabic numerals and index markers. There is a date display window on the dial, which is placed between the 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock positions. Despite embodying all the essential time display elements, the dial looks very sober and uncluttered.
The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection men’s watch 5015D-1140-52B is powered with calibre 1315 self-winding movement and boasts 227 parts. This stunning timepiece comes with an impressive power reserve of 120 hours. The movement of the watch is couched in an anti-magnetic material and is capable of working with minimal deviations that gives more durability to the watch and makes it trustworthy for its users. This precious timepiece is water resistant up to a depth of 300 metres, hence making it a true divers’ companion. The bezel is uni-directional rotation, having a sapphire crystal cap, thereby protecting the timepiece from accidental scratches and harm.
The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection now spans more than half a century of winning the ultimate diver’s watch title. This family of captivating luxury time-keepers was pioneered in 1953 when two commanders of the French Combat Diving School, Captain Robet Maloubier and Lieutenant Claude Riffaud decided to have a custom built watch designed specifically for their dive soldiers. Blancpain CEO Jean-Jacques Fietcher, an enthusiastic diver himself, decided to take up the project and created this uber efficient masterpiece.
The Fifty Fathoms Automatique 5015 is an exceptionally impressive model as it perfectly blends high end graphics with an outstanding water resistance feature. The hallmark of the Automatique that will never age or fade in charm is the sapphire crystal bezel. Flat bezels cut from Sapphire crystals are unexceptional and usually the norm. To carve a 3 dimensional bezel out of pure Sapphire crystal requires skilled technique coupled with effort and time. The bezel is virtually scratch-proof with extra luminescence provided to the numerals inked in SuperLumiNova. This 45 mm time-piece is self-winding and has a noteworthy 120 hour power reserve. Albeit being called Fifty Fathoms it is water resistant to more than 1000 feet in reality. The Bathyscape is another version of the Fifty Fathoms family that has a case diameter of 43 mm with a unidirectional satin-brushed titanium bezel with ceramic insert and Liquidmetal hour markers. The Fifty Fathoms is and always has been the original debutant in authentic diver’s watches. The Fifty Fathoms Bathyscape Chronograph has a new in-house movement running at a frequency of 36,000 beats per hour that is impressive in itself; while also being equipped with a vertical clutch mechanism and column wheel for the chronograph.
Vincent Beccia, renowned watchmaker for Blancpain, was recently recognized internationally by the world famous watch magazine Revolution and awarded the prize for being Watchmaker of the Year.
