Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique

        One of the most prestigious members of today’s Haute Horology, Blancpain is a legendary brand that traces its roots back to the first half of the 18th century, when it was created in a small Swiss village, named Villeret. There started one of the most fascinating stories in the history of the fine watch making, which brought many outstanding objects of horological art to the world’s cultural patrimony.

        Fateful to its tradition, life-guiding principles and philosophy, Blancpain produces some of the most beautiful wristwatches in the world, defined by unmatched intricacy of their design and by the impeccable accuracy of their mechanical movements, which captured the attention of one of the most exclusive and demanding clientele in the watch-making industry.

         In order to pay a great tribute to one of the most successful lines of the brand, the outstanding Fifty Fathoms Watch Line, launched in the 50s, the brand brought to life another remarkable timepiece, which merges the immaculate white aesthetics with a strong sporty spirit, the new Fifty Fathoms Automatique Watch.

        Instantly recognizable, the well known, Fifty Fathoms DNA, acquires, with this new interpretation a fresh novelty air. The timepiece is equipped with a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel manufactured from white scratchproof sapphire crystal, designed to limit at maximum the potential shocks to the timepiece.

         The timepiece features a masculine robust case, measuring 45 mm in diameter, furthermore fitted with crown-guards, designed to enhance the sturdiness of the case’s construction that ensures 300-meters water tightness. The watch features an extremely legible matt white dial, completed with luminescent-coated, trapeze-shaped hour indices; moreover, the watch features rhodium-plated gold hour hands also coated with luminescent substances for optimal time legibility underwater.

        The stylish Fifty Fathoms Automatique accommodates an in-house mechanical movement, the self-winding Calibre 1315 created with the utmost accuracy, performance and simplicity in mind, that due to an innovative three series-coupled barrels confers a remarkable 5-day power reserve. Moreover, the complexity of the movement and the meticulous attention paid to the perfection of each of the 222 components of the watch’s mechanism can be admired through an exhibition case-back.

         Created to serve as a reliable timekeeping companion for a professional diver, the new Fifty Fathoms Automatique Watch comes coupled with a white salt-water resistant strap, manufactured from rubber-lined sail canvas and it will be available for a price tag of $11,120.00.
