Released in the late ’50s from a desire to offer a diver’s watch in a size suited to daily wear, the Bathyscaphe was first reinterpreted by Blancpain in 2013. This year, the timepiece returns with a new self-winding F385 movement featuring a flyback chronograph function. The “Fifty Fathoms” houses a new 13-lignes Manufacture Blancpain movement beating at a rate of 36,000 vibrations/hour. The 43 mm-diameter Bathyscaphe comes either in a brushed black ceramic version with a black dial, or in brushed steel with a meteor grey dial. All models are fitted with a NATO fabric or sail canvas strap. The steel version also comes on a metal bracelet, a first for this line. Look for the timepiece at luxury watch retailers now.
