Introducing: The Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, Now With A Plasma Grey Ceramic Case
Blancpain explored different avenues regarding the material in 2014 with the arrival of the restricted release Bathyscaphe Chronograph Flyback Ocean Commitment , and they gave the Fifty Fathoms a glossy silk brushed dark artistic case a year later.
Blancpain have now embraced the dim adaptation for the model’s 43 mm case, and it looks great. The actual watch includes the signs of the current Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe (post 2013 re-dispatch). It’s a prototypical three-gave plunging watch with a unidirectional bezel, curiously large records and hands loaded up with SuperLuminova, and with the expansion of a date window sandwiched somewhere in the range of 4 and 5 o’clock.
Combined with a dark blue dial and a blue ceramic addition, the dim case functions admirably. What was previously an incredible expert instrument watch is presently an extraordinary very good quality expert apparatus watch. The new Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe is fueled by Blancpain’s solid Caliber 1315, a self-winding development produced for the maison’s sports watches flaunting a noteworthy 5-day power save. The watch is water impervious to 30 bar/300 meters.
The Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe comes with two ties choices. Decisions incorporate a three-ring NATO lash or a sail material rendition. The watch will be valued at $12,800, a $2,500 knock from a year ago’s hardened steel model.
