Since launch in 1953, the epoch of the modern mechanical diving watch, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watch, has been favoured by professional divers and has quickly won the favour of scuba divers worldwide. Since then, the Fifty Fathoms watch has defined the industry standard for modern diving watches and has become the benchmark for the entire industry. For more than 60 years, its core technology and aesthetic features have been continuously passed down, and it has become more complete with the addition of date display functions after 2000. Now, this legendary watch once again welcomes the addition of new material, titanium.In the 1950s, the first Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watch has quickly stood out from other timepieces because of its practicality. It was a watch designed for professional diving. In 2007, this legendary watch was updated on the basis of tradition. In order to make it easier to read, a date display window was added between 4 and 5 o’clock. Now, Blancpain has reinvented the titanium case with a satin matte process, combining the ebony black dial with deep metallic lustre and the satin metal brushed titanium case to launch the new Fifty Fathoms Titanium watch.Titanium alloy is known for its hard texture, excellent impact resistance and superior corrosion resistance. At the same time, its low-density properties give it a lighter texture. Therefore, compared with the steel material, these main advantages of the titanium alloy allow the Fifty Fathoms timer to retain all the technical standards of professional diving equipment while retaining the characteristics of the large diameter and reducing the wrist burden of the wearer. Professional divers have a lot of sports equipment to carry during the dive. This “burden reduction” will undoubtedly receive the respect and praise of divers. Not only that, if the modern white-collar workers also want to have a large-diameter, lightweight watch to meet the needs of everyday wear, this Fifty-Five titanium-alloy watch is undoubtedly a suitable choice. The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms titanium timepiece features a 45mm titanium case and is water resistant to 300 meters. In order to improve the visibility of the watch under any circumstances, the front ring scale, dial hour scale and hands are covered with Super-LumiNova luminous coating, in sharp contrast with the black dial with solar radiation texture. Through the sapphire glass on the back, the beautiful operation of the famous Blancpain 1315 movement is unobstructed. The movement is equipped with three high-performance barrels in series to provide up to five days of power reserve. The silicon spring is not disturbed by the magnetic field and therefore does not need to be isolated in the soft iron anti-magnetic metal cover. In order to ensure the beauty and reliability of the movement, Blancpain follows the purest tradition of watchmaking craftsmanship, using a variety of decorative techniques such as solar radiation, spiral radiation, fish scale pearl and ring satin, which highlights the unique beauty of the Blancpain titanium watch.

Watch industry often has “first fight”. The first watch? The first female watch? The first flight timepiece, etc., sometimes it can’t be said clearly. But the first diving watch is ascertain. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms and Rolex 6202 that appeared in 1953 are diving watches. Why the world first modern diving watch is Fifty Fathoms. Mainly because that Blancpain used the unidirectional rotating bezel for the first time on the Fifty Fathoms (unidirectional rotating bezel is standard on the current professional diving watch), and the patent of Blancpain (patent term: 30 years). This allowed Rolex to use this bezel until the 1980s. So objectively speaking, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is the first truly modern diving watch.
Luxury sapphire bezel
Nowadays, high-end diving watches generally use ceramic rings. Fifty Fathoms bezel is sapphire, with a luminous scale inside. And the luminous markers are sharp and very luxurious.
Impervious case back
One of the reasons is that the watch has a magnetic inner casing, so choose the impervious back. Inside the back, there is also a anti-magnetic cover (anti-magnetic cover is fixed to the movement with 3 screws). Diving watch with anti-magnetic inner casing is very few. Although the bottom is sacrificed, the configuration is still very high.
As a major movement of Blancpain, Cal.1315 has the highest-end configuration. 120 H power reserve(5 days) is enough for traveling. It is understood that Blancpain developed 1315 calibre for more than three years. So, every details of the movement are the boutiques.
In addition to the more obvious features mentioned above, Blancpain still has some details to appreciate. 45mm diameter black enamel dial with the luminous markers can offer a legible view even in the bad environment. The combination of Arabic numerals and sticks scales add fun to this watch. Engraved with the logo of the brand at the side, stainless steel case seems more smart.
Equipped with a serrated shape, stainless steel bezel seems strong. And the perfect combination with the case is very beautiful. The watch is equipped with a strap that is made of black canvas strap, which has good air permeability and strong plasticity. However, the material is relatively hard and there is pressure when worn. Coupled with the wear of the stainless steel clasp, the canvas strap is prone to problems. Therefore, if you choose this watch, be sure to prepare an alternate strap at hand.
The 45 mm Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is relatively has few customer for high price and large size (the thickness of watch is 15.5mm, which is a little unwell). However, because of the high configuration, it is very popular among collectors. Coupled with the gorgeous appearance, it is worth having if people have the ability.
Elegant and Concise: Blancpain Villeret Retrograde Stainless Steel/Rose Gold Lager Candler Men Watch 6668-1127/3642-55B

The thickness of the 40mm diameter white dial is 11.1mm. What’s more, this round dial has no second markers ring, which makes the dial simple but adds difficulty to distinguish time when needed.
Silver Roman markers are silver, which seem more clean. The large candler fan shaped window is located at 8 o’clock. While the date display window stays between 5 o’clock and 6 o’clock, which is more funny and is unique for other styles. The willow hour and minute hands is obvious with the thin second hand.
The stainless steel case has the fine polished and design. With the small crown, the watch seems fashion and gentle. And this watch has the sapphire crystal back, which is clear and shows the function of the machine.

And the length of the lugs is about 22mm, which can ensure the wide leather strap to match wrist. The brand has the special perspective on shade selection. The silver white with the black is the classical combination when compare with other color blending group.
Black crocodile leather strap with alzavel calfskin inner. In order to offer more comfortable experience, the watch take this join, which is soft and luxury. It is more refined and formal under the decoration of the same color stitching and natural cracks. The folding watch buckle is also stainless steel, which make it easier to wear.

Except the stainless steel style, there is a 18 K rose gold type can be chosen. As we all know, stainless steel seems smart and modern, while rose gold can reflect femininity and charm. In my opinion, the stainless suit the formal occasion, and the rose gold can meet the need for leisure time. But all the choice depend on personal preference of people. And the brand offers metal chain band or leather strap for customers to provide comfortable experience.
