Product Description

In 1953 Blancpain was commissioned by the French military to develop a mechanical, automatic wind diver’s watch with a unidirectional bezel that featured a graded Bakelite insert to display the diving time. The watch was named "Fifty Fathoms", because it was water-resistant to a depth of 50 fathoms (1 fm = 1,829 m), i.e., 91.45 m.
Paying homage to the early diver’s watches, new and extravagant models were created, making use of avant-garde materials to set hitherto unsurpassed technical standards.
