Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe

Blancpain’s three-hand version of the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe appears for the first time in a plasma gray ceramic case. Outfitting the model with a deep blue dial invokes an image of the sea. The plasma gray ceramic bezel is equipped with a blue ceramic insert featuring Liquidmetal® hour markers, preventing distortions. The material was first used in the Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback Ocean Commitment in 2014.

As a diving watch, the large seconds hand serves as an indicator that the watch is running. The watch is powered by the 1315 caliber. With its sturdiness and precision, the caliber represents the watchmaker’s dedication to accuracy. The caliber was conceived for sports watches and is fitted with a robust glucydur balance wheel, with square-head gold screws guaranteeing precision and efficient adjustment.

The watch is offered with a three-ring NATO strap or a sail canvas strap.
