Blancpain’s first collection of Fifty Fathoms Swatch watches, renowned for their exquisite craftsmanship, draws inspiration from the Earth’s vast oceans. In their latest edition, the brand takes us on a celestial journey, finding inspiration in our mesmerizing lunar companion, the Moon.
The Fifty Fathoms Ocean of Storms timepiece boasts a striking 42.3mm black Bioceramic case, meticulously designed with a matching crown and bezel. The bezel, a one-way rotating masterpiece, features an anti-scratch, biosourced glass insert, ensuring both durability and elegance. The dial, adorned with a captivating black sunbrushed finish, showcases a convenient date indicator at 4:30. To enhance readability, Grade A Super-LumiNova fills the hour markers, hour and minute hands, and bezel scale, illuminating the watch with a mesmerizing glow.
Hidden beneath the surface lies the SISTEM51 mechanical movement, an engineering marvel that powers this exceptional timepiece. Through the sapphire caseback, one can catch a glimpse of this intricate mechanism, beautifully adorned with an illustration of the Ocean of Storms and the Okenia Luna sea slug. Every detail is meticulously crafted to captivate both the eye and the imagination.
Completing the ensemble is a striped NATO strap, thoughtfully crafted from recycled fishing nets, exemplifying Blancpain’s commitment to sustainability. With a water resistance of 50 fathoms, equivalent to 300 feet, this remarkable timepiece is ready to accompany you on any adventure that awaits.
