The Fifty Fathoms collection embodies Blancpain’s passion for the underwater world that was originally expressed in 1953 with the creation of the first modern diver’s watch. Ever since, Blancpain has been accompanying divers and underwater photographers in their exploration and discovery of the oceans’ fragile beauty, thus contributing to the knowledge of this fascinating universe and to the motivation to protect it.
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 addition to the collection, the X Fathoms, is an extraordinary technical achievement 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.
