The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe - A Modern Interpretation of the First Diver's Watch
By SENATUS Magazine | 24 October 2020

On the Fifty Fathom's 60th anniversary in 2013, Blancpain released the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, re-imagining a model from the late 1950s. Its name is derived from the submersible cabin in which divers could explore parts of the ocean too deep for an exposed diver. It was first launched at an approximate diameter of 43 mm, 2 mm smaller than the original Fifty Fathoms yet slimmer in profile, to add. Since then, it is now also offered at a smaller size of 38 mm, providing more versatility and appeal to a wider base of customers.

In short, the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe is a modern watch, dress-ier, yet retains all the hallmarks and diving heritage of the Fifty Fathoms collection.

Blancpain CEO Mark Hayek best explains the Fifty Fathoms as a "diving watch you can wear on land," while the Bathyscaphe is a "watch you can go diving with."

Blancpain has just unveiled two new additions fo the Bathyscaphe line, with unique colourways beyond the blue, black or even grey that the Fifty Fathoms has now come to be closely identified with.
