Blancpain’s Precision Diver

    Blancpain first revealed the modern diver’s watch in 1953, and now the brand known for its understated elegance presents a new generation of timepieces, the Fifty Fathoms Automatique. Its sporty styling is paired with a complicated movement to appeal both to seasoned divers as well as connoisseurs of fine mechanisms. Designed with a sapphire crystal case back, this new model reveals the complexity of a 222-part self-winding caliber 1315 movement while maintaining water resistance up to 300 meters. In addition, this new genre of watches includes an oscillating weight shaped like a nautilus, five-day power reserve, and it exposes a fluorescent green color in the dark allowing divers to explore the depths of the ocean.
