Watch brand Blancpain: tradition, style and modern technology
Blancpain is a noble watch brand and at the same time the name of the world-famous Swiss watch manufacture in Paudex, Canton Vaud. The manufacture, which today belongs to the Swatch Group, was founded 285 years ago by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain. Serial production of watches has been running in the company since 1815. After its birth in 1953, the model Fifty Fathoms conquered the hearts of many watch lovers who particularly appreciate precision, elegance and tradition of this watch brand. The design of the watch became a canonical appearance for new generations of watches. The titanium case contains a number of original technical features and solutions that make this watch so valuable and unique. The very first Fifty Fathoms models were distinguished by practical features developed with the needs of professional divers in mind. The watch was given a luminous hand that contrasts well on the black dial with large hour markers, a bezel that can be rotated in only one direction, and a titanium case with an additional inner case that protects the clockwork from external magnetic fields. In 2007, a date indicator was added to Fifty Fathoms' arsenal of functions between 4 and 5 o'clock on the dial, while the watch's appearance did not suffer. In 2019, the watch received a case made of satin-finished titanium, which is known not only for its strength, wear and corrosion resistance, but also for its low density, which gives the material an exceptional lightness. Lighter weight compared to the stainless steel allowed Blancpain watchmakers to produce watches with a large diameter. All the technical features of the instrument, which are important when diving at great depths (up to 300 meters) and are practical and non-intrusive on the wrist, have been preserved.
Features of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique
The unidirectional bezel with a serrated edge features a scratch-resistant black sapphire crystal insert. To ensure excellent readability in all conditions, the hands and all markings on the dial are coated with Super-LumiNova. On the back of the watch there is a transparent sapphire crystal cover, under which the Blancpain 1315 model name is visible. The clockwork is equipped with a sufficient power reserve of five days (120 hours), which is made possible by the three series-connected movement drums. A silicon balancing hairspring protects the mechanism from magnetization without the need to isolate it in an additional case for this purpose. It is very elegant to wear this stylish watch on a black bracelet. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique is an excellent technique that impresses with functionality, robustness, reliability and aesthetics, meeting all the most demanding requirements.
