Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms Scores An Upgrade

The revered Swiss watchmaker dives into titanium bracelets.

By Terry Christodoulou 09/06/2020

Blancpain has added a sporty titanium bracelet to some of its celebrated Fifty Fathoms collection.

The Swiss watchmaker, which holds claims on the first ‘modern’ dive watch given its 1953 debut, has equipped the Fifty Fathoms Automatique and Grande Date models with impressively light titanium bracelets.

The hand-satin brushed links and flexible fitting bracelet joins the previously available sail canvas and NATO straps.

Both pieces feature 45mm titanium cases that house emblematic dial complete with essential diving instruments, Super-Luminova hour-markers and hands, 300-metre water resistance and unidirectional rotating bezel.

Blancpain’s 1315 movement – a mainstay of the contemporary collection – powers things with a five-day power reserve.

The Fifty Fathoms Automatique is available in black or blue sunburst dial, while the Grande Date comes with a black dial.
