The Fifty Fathoms embodies Blancpain's fascination with marine life. Originally developed for the French navy in the 1950s, it made history as the world’s first modern diving watch. The name “Fifty Fathoms” refers to its water resistance rating to a depth of 50 fathoms or 91.44 meters.
Today, the water-destined collection is a mainstay in the brand’s catalog, with a wide range of styles – from three-handed models to more complicated pieces equipped with chronograph or tourbillon functions. Characterized by an increased depth rating of up to 300 meters, high-contrast dials, and thin cases in steel or precious metals, the current Fifty Fathoms is a popular archetype for countless dive watches on the market.
