Blancpain reissues Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe in black 38mm edition

Blancpain fifty fathoms

Blancpain has added a 38mm model to its Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe family.

Bathyscaphe diving watches were first introduced in the 1950s, and reissued in 2013 as a 60th anniversary launch that took on vintage elements of the original.

The 2017 model has a steel unidirectional bezel with black ceramic inserts and hour-markers in an alloy trademarked as Liquidmetal.

It has a luminescent dot on the bezel serving as an index for divers so that they know the start and finish time of a dive.

The watch is water-resistant to approximately 300 meters.

Inside is a Caliber 1150 movement with gold oscillating weight equipped with two series-coupled barrels ensuring a 100-hour power reserve.

It has a balance spring in silicon, whose low density makes it lighter and thus more shock-resistant.

The new three-hand 38 mm Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe model is now available in black from Blancpain Bond Street.
