Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Grande Date Comments

Let’s take a closer look at one of the most advanced swimming clocks of the last century.

Fifty fathoms made its name as the first modern clock clock and began in 1953. Since then, it has become well-known in the minds of watchmakers throughout Switzerland and around the world to produce high-end watchmakers. Although many of the differences came from the original design, they all retained the characteristics that remain the same.

The new model we are looking at today has a larger but lighter 45mm titanium case with a thickness of 16.2mm and 23mm in width between the straps. Like all Fathom Fifty watches, you should expect the case to be very water resistant with 30 bar / 300m / 1000ft water resistance.

The Fifty-Fathoms Grande Date Clock has a round sapphire sized bezel with an edge for added grip. The sapphire bezel also has a bright light in a variety of colors with minute markers using 15, 30, and 45 minute diamond-shaped markers at 12 o’clock or “start” positions.

The black floor lamp has sunlight and features indoor light-shaped markers filled with SuperLuminova illuminating objects that glow green with a slight glow. The instrument uses lume-filled hands, polished as a tie for an hour and a minute with a small arrow-shaped hand with a reddish tinge.

The content of this list is best known for its compact design and its Grande Date which is available at 6 p.m. It uses large numbers that are viewed by two windows. Dates and times are set using a twisted crown.

The case consists of fine brushes found in the titanium back section, bezel, lugs, crown horns, crown, and a known pin. The rope is made of a very thick, black rubber-lined sailcloth that should give him the strength he needs to endure, even when he is tired of the hardships.

The left side of the case contains the Blancpain inscription in their well-known serif inscriptions. The right side of the case has a curved crown with the ‘B’ logo from the Blancpain logo.

Blancpain Caliber 6918B

Through a transparent sapphire bag, this watch reveals its heartbeat. The most obvious source of power for this watch is the Blancpain caliber 6918B self-propelled bar with an 18kt gold watch that controls the steering wheel. When you move your hand, it rotates and increases the storage capacity for 5/120 days. 6918B caliber is a 35-jewel movement that uses a silicon balance spring magnetic field and sounds at a constant frequency of 4Hz / 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Grande Date 45mm is a watch that should be displayed separately. As a result, this watch comes with a real Peli weight 9 “x 7” x 4 “.
