Large Date and Grand Jour!
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Large Date Jour Retrograde is the name of this noble masterpiece of watchmaking art, but what immediately catches our eye as unusually large is not the date, but the fan-shaped day of the week display. The Jour (French day) in the name of the watch refers to it. The days of the week are not French, but are listed in their English abbreviations in a fan shape at the bottom left. At the same time, the Large Date display is located in the bottom right-hand corner, in two parts with separate fields of view for tens and units.
The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Large Date Jour Retrograde is available in four different attractive versions. Choose between pink gold, which emphasises the high-quality character of the watch, or discreet stainless steel, which can be combined with all colours, for the case of your watch. The markings and hands of all models are harmoniously matched to the colour of the case. You can also choose the bracelet in the same material as the case. However, if you prefer to feel soft leather on your wrist instead of cold metal, both versions are also available with a fine strap in genuine alligator leather.
