BLANCPAIN | Fifty Fathoms Ceramic Blue
There is something elegant about a deep blue, or a midnight blue as it appears in the colouring of a perfect tuxedo, a colour used to achieve that impervious black look while under the lights — “blue-black” they call it.
Add this hue to a classic diver’s watch, faced with ceramic, and constructed in vibrant gold and you have a certified winner. That is exactly what Blancpain have done, and with none other than their Fifty Fathoms, the iconic diver’s watch that has inspired the entire genre since its launching in 1953.
For this new Fifty Fathoms Automatic 2019 edition, Blancpain opt for a precious case in satin-brushed red gold, and for the first time in the collection the dial is attired in blue ceramic; ceramic a material that offers a multitude of advantages. With six-times the hardness of steel, technical ceramic gives remarkable stability and longevity, chosen by Blancpain given the 300m chromatic depth of this new timepiece.
A cobalt-like contrast between the sunburst dial centre and the matte chapter ring gives the watch the appearance of a visual depth, akin to that of the very oceans it was birthed for. The result is a functional masterpiece; the embodiment of timeless elegance.
