In­spired by the ocean

BLANCPAIN LAUNCH THE NEW FIFTY FATHOMS BATHYSCAPHE IN ABYSS BLUE

Virtuozity - - Watch -

THE VIN­TAGE-IN­SPIRED FIFTY Fathoms Bathyscaphe, first pre­sented in 2013, is ex­tend­ing its range with a new 38 mm time­piece at­tired in abyss blue. The new three-hand Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe model ap­pears in a blue shade par­tic­u­larly cher­ished by Blancpain in that it recalls the depths of the ocean. Set­ting the per­fect fin­ish­ing touch, the steel bezel fea­tures a blue ce­ramic in­sert and hour-mark­ers in Liq­uid­metal – an al­loy known for its de­for­ma­tion re­sis­tance and long-term sta­bil­ity.

Hav­ing first cre­ated div­ing watches in the 1950s, the new Fifty Fathoms is loyal to the orig­i­nal Bathyscaphe ver­sion with its lu­mi­nes­cent dot on the bezel serv­ing as an in­dex for divers, en­abling ac­cu­rate align­ment with the min­utes hand and thereby defin­ing the start of a given dive time. Wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 300 me­ters, the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe is pow­ered by Cal­iber 1150. This move­ment dis­tin­guished by its ro­bust­ness and its chrono­met­ric per­for­mance is equipped with two se­ries-cou­pled bar­rels en­sur­ing a 100-hour power re­serve while guar­an­tee­ing con­stant en­ergy, a sig­nif­i­cant tech­no­log­i­cal feat.
