Baselworld 2016: Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe – a personal declaration of love.

I fell in love with this blue Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe. As one picture never could illustrate its real beauty, I took a bunch of pictures in different settings to show the true blue of this Blancpain. Simply stunning! 

 

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe

Date and seconds, blue dial, unidirectional satin-brushed grey ceramic bezel with blue ceramic insert and Liquidmetal hour-markers, Blancpain self-winding calibre 1315 with 120 hours power-reserve. Conceived for sports watches, the 1315 caliber is fitted with a robust glucydur balance wheel, with square-head gold micrometric regulating screws and with a balance-spring in silicon. The satin-brushed grey ceramic has a diameter of 43,6 mm and is 13,83 mm thick, it is waterproof up to 300 meters. The watch can either be worn on a blue three-ring NATO-strap or a blue sail canvas version.

The price: 11.880 Euro including 19 % VAT.

I presented you this Blancpain novelty already the 16th March, two days before the doors of Baselworld 2016 opened. At that time I did of course not have any live taken pictures since I had not seen the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe in real. In Basel I took some time and I made a bunch of pictures under different lighting conditions and backgrounds. My intention was to show you the true beauty of this diver. Depending on the light and the angle you look on it the watch looks different. I hope these 25 pictures give you an impression of the blue.

Guys I can’t get enough of it. The new Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe simply is a stunning beauty!

    This young lady looks stunning in her blue dress, will get plenty of proposals for marriage but the man need lot money to get a yes.

  2. Paul B says:

    Stunning isn’t it. I agree. But isn’t 50 fathoms, 300′, so 100m waterproof.

    • Michael says:

      Paul,
      The watch case is marked 30 Bar…..This will be approximately 300 meters/meters, approximately 1000 feet water resistance.

      Regards,
      Mike

      • Paul B says:

        Thanks Mike. I looked up the history of the 50 fathoms and I see now.

        But my blue-faced 16618 has its 300m on the front and that’s where I would prefer to see the 30 bar on the Blancpain.

    That’s passion! I like your passion even more than the watch itself. But in some of your pictures I really like the looks of this watch. The ceramic case looks like brushed steel or titanium.

    The last time you went so crazy about a blue dive watch it took me three times to see it in the metal before I had to have it. Let’s see what will happen with this one. 🙂
