Description

Released in 1953 and paving the way for modern diving watches, the Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms exists as one of the most legendary timepieces ever. Beginning life as a watch worn by the most elite military ‘Frogmen’ divers from all over the world, the Fifty-Fathom’s earned its reputation as a incredibly robust toolwatch. Of the multiple Fifty Fathoms variants that exist, the ref. 5015-1130-52 that we have here pays homage to a variant from the mid-60s that was used by Germany’s Navy Combat Swimmers. This timepiece is an important reminder of where dive watches have come, and the Fifty Fathoms’ role in getting them where they are today.
