Blancpain Celebrates Fifty Fathoms Diving Watch

Since its creation in 1953, the Fifty Fathoms has been among the main choices as a modern diver’s watch.

Sixty years later, two new models join the lineage and Blancpain has chosen to celebrate the anniversary with a dedicated exhibition.

Marc A. Hayek, president and CEO of Blancpain, welcomed emblematic figures and partners from the diving world who have played, or still play an important role in the discovery of the ocean.

The father of the Fifty Fathoms, Jean-Jacques Fiechter, Blancpain president from 1950-1980; David Bennett, National Geographic VP; Enric Sala, National Geographic Explorer in Residence; Krov Menuhin, Hans Hass Award Committee president, and also the free-diver Gianluca Genoni gathered to celebrate the anniversary of the first diving watch.

The audience even experienced a live transmission with Laurent Ballesta, currently in expedition with Blancpain in South Africa to encounter the coelacanth, a living fossil.

Today, according to the company, the 2013 Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe model appears in the wake of a lineage extending over more than half a century and still meeting the requirements of modern divers.
