The modern Fifty Fathoms collection that was debuted in 2007 and embodies Blancpain’s passion for the underwater world that was originally expressed in 1953 with the creation of the first modern diver’s watch. Following the well-established reputation of their legendary ancestors, all Fifty Fathoms models feature the main signature elements and extraordinary technical achievement. The latest additions use the passion and wealth of experience Blancpain have accumulated in the diving field, creating innovative timepieces with the ability to be pushed to their limits.
The Blancpain Automatique Grande Dates casing is constructed from the lightweight yet high strength Titanium. Sized at 45mm in diameter and a thickness of 16.27mm, waterproof up to 300M. Titanium is a metal resistant to corrosion in sea water and chlorine, a vital asset for a diver’s watch. The sapphire unidirectional bezel has a luminous coated graduated 60-minute scale for legibility whilst submerged on a dive and the Unidirectional bezel is effectively a safety device, ensuring a diver can’t ever accidentally over estimate a dive time. Luminescent filled hour indexes and hands sit upon the black dial, again ensuring legibility in light restricted conditions. The ‘Grande Date’ feature is present at the 6 o’clock position. Set upon the black canvas strap for optimal comfort and durability.
Viable through the sapphire case back, is the impressive in-house Calibre 6918B self-winding movement, known for its long-lasting power reserve of up to an extraordinary 120 hours with a frequency of 4Hz.
