The Fifty Fathoms collection embodies Blancpain’s passion for the underwater world that was originally expressed in 1953 with the presentation of the first modern diver’s watch.
All Fifty Fathoms models feature the main signature elements that forged the reputation of their legendary ancestor and established it as the archetypal diver’s watch. The same professionalism is apparent in the decisive design choices, dictated by a wealth of experience in the field of diving, its risks and its imperious necessities.
The latest additions to the collection are extraordinary technical achievements as well as a tribute to the pioneers who made scuba diving possible. It is their passion and dedication which opened up whole new vistas for underwater exploration and that continue to inspire Blancpain in using innovative materials and new technical solutions in order to push the limits of its timepieces and to fulfil the most sophisticated demands.
The flyback chronograph, which measures a succession of elapsed times, eliminates many superfluous repetitive operations.
