Blancpain's Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback, is for the first time, available in red gold, bringing a new aesthetic reinterpretation to the line’s emblematic codes.
Measuring 43 mm in diameter and water resistant up to 30 bar (approximately 300 m), this edition combines a red gold case, hands and hour markers, with a blue sunburst dial and matching bracelet.
The timepiece is powered by the Blancpain Calibre F385, 5 Hertz, one of the watch industry’s most renowned chronograph movements.
This in-house movement draws on Blancpain's refined vertical clutch design that ensures smooth engagement of the chronograph mechanism, eliminating the problem of the chronograph seconds hand making sudden, abrupt jumps.
Control of starting, stopping and resetting the chronograph is done via a column wheel, enabling smooth and comfortable operation of the pushers. The F385 beats at a frequency of 5 Hz, which is a considerable advantage in terms of timekeeping accuracy compared to lower frequencies. It has an inertia-regulated balance wheel with a silicon balance spring, whose geometry and lightness help ensure excellent chronometric performance.
