Blancpaij has introduced its first Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe in a titanium case and bracelet. Titanium is a reliable ally of diver’s watches, offering numerous advantages including high resistance to shock, pressure and corrosion.
In addition, this metal boasts a low density making it particularly light and comfortable to wear.
Measuring 43 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 30 bar (approximately 300 metres), the sharply contoured case of the new Bathyscaphe is made of satin-finished grade 23 titanium. This high-end titanium rarely used in the watch industry requires substantial machining work that is extremely challenging.
The anthracite-coloured dial features a hand-crafted vertical satin finish creating a resolutely modern matt effect, enhanced by the Bathyscaphe’s traditional luminescent baton-type hands and geometric hour-markers, as well as a satin-finished titanium bezel with a satin-finished ceramic insert and a Liquidmetal™ time scale.
