there’s an in­cred­i­ble and long his­tory be­hind the Blanc­pain Fifty Fath­oms MiL-sPec. one of its most prom­i­nent mo­ments of fame was when it in­tro­duced the cir­cu­lar wa­ter-tight­ness in­di­ca­tor, which gives the wearer a sig­nal if liq­uid leaks into the watch case by chang­ing the disk color at 6 o’clock from white to red. it be­came so pop­u­lar, in fact, that the Fifty Fath­oms be­came stan­dard-is­sue for amer­i­can com­bat swim­mers. the new Blanc­pain trib­ute to Fifty Fath­oms MiLsPec fea­tures a plat­inum al­loy and solid gold wind­ing ro­tor along with a Blanc­pain logo that is vis­i­ble through the clear sap­phire case back. in ad­di­tion, the bal­ance spring is crafted from sil­i­con, which al­lows it to be much lighter, more shock­re­sis­tant and im­per­me­able to mag­netic fields.
