One of the first watch brands to produce professional dive watches, many of the characteristics of Blancpain’s iconic Fifty Fathoms developed for French Navy combat divers in the 1950s have become standard features on diving watches, such as dark dials with clear luminescent markings and the life-saving unidirectional rotating bezel. Kitted out in a grey plasma ceramic suit with a deep blue dial evoking the depths of the sea, the 2016 Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe is not only a reliable diving companion to 300 metres, it is an extremely stylish watch for life on dry land. The elegant blue dial with its sunray finish features the classic round indices of the Fifty Fathoms family and, along with the vintage-style hands, are all treated with superior luminescence to light up the darkest depths. High-tech plasma ceramic is renowned for its resilient and scratchproof properties, ensuring that its subtle metallic sheen will glow for years to come. Equipped with the famous Blancpain 1315 automatic movement, this watch has an incredibly robust power supply of 120 hours, or roughly 5 days.
