Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - TIMEPIECES -

Set­ting stan­dards of ex­cel­lence since 1735 in the tra­di­tion of in­no­va­tion and pre­cise watch­mak­ing is Blancpain. There was never a bar­rier to in­no­va­tion and the Blancpain Man­u­fac­ture pur­sues a rig­or­ous qual­ity pol­icy de­signed to pro­duce the best pos­si­ble watches, made en­tirely in Switzerland. This year, the vin­tagein­spired Fifty Fath­oms Bathyscaphe of 2013 ex­tended its range by in­tro­duc­ing a 38 mm time­piece at­tired in abyss blue. The blue shade rep­re­sents Blancpain’s com­mit­ment to the depths of the oceans and var­i­ous key char­ac­ter­is­tics model af­ter the first edi­tions. For the per­fect fin­ish­ing touches, the steel bezel fea­tures a blue ce­ramic insert and hour-mark­ers in Liq­uid­metal®, an al­loy known for its de­for­ma­tion re­sis­tance and longterm sta­bil­ity. Dive func­tions in­clude a uni­di­rec­tional bezel ro­tat­ing counter-clock­wise by small notches, a lu­mi­nes­cent dot on the bezel to serve as an in­dex for divers and ac­cu­rate align­ment of the min­utes hand to de­fine the start dive time, wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 30 bar, and pow­ered by Cal­iber 1150.
