Blancpain - New bracelet for the Fifty Fathoms in Titanium

Two of the most popular sport models produced by Blancpain, the Fifty Fathoms Automatique and the Fifty Fathoms Grande Date, are now available with a titanium bracelet.

Thanks to its avant-garde features, including the large luminescent black-grounded hour-markers and hands, its robustness, water-resistance and secure rotating bezel, the Fifty Fathoms became the benchmark for the entire watchmaking industry after its launch in 1953.

Blancpain was also a pioneer in the use of titanium in watchmaking. In fact, in the early 1960s it produced a special series of MIL-SPEC II models for US Navy minesweeper teams whose case was made of nickel silver – a non-magnetic copper, zinc and nickel alloy – and fitted with a titanium back, evidently chosen for its greater resistance to pressure.

Previously available with sail canvas or NATO straps only, the Fifty Fathoms Automatique and Grande Date models in titanium can now be equipped with a refined bracelet entirely crafted from titanium.

Its production involves a series of demanding assembly and finishing processes. Its hand satin-brushed links are joined together by means of transverse pins, resulting in special fluidity and flexibility to ensure a perfect fit on the wrist.

No lateral screws are visible as they are placed on the back of the links thanks to a patented system. This solution preserves the smooth look and feel of the bracelet edges.

Equipped with a 45 mm titanium case that is water-resistant to 30 bar (approx. 300 meters / 1,000 feet), the Fifty Fathoms Automatique and Grande Date models are powered by the Manufacture 1315 and 6918B movements, respectively. Insensitive to magnetic fields thanks to the use of a silicon balance-spring, these calibres deliver a comfortable 120-hour power reserve provided by three series-coupled barrels.

The Fifty Fathoms Automatique remains available with a black (ref. 5015-12B30-98) or blue sunburst (ref. 5015-12B40-98) dial, while the Fifty Fathoms Grande Date (ref. 5015-12B40-98) continues to be offered with a black dial. blancpain.com
