Blancpain releases Fifty Fathoms Automatique 42 mm in red gold and titanium
By SENATUS Editor | 25 March 2024

Blancpain unveils its new 42 mm-diameter Fifty Fathoms Automatique models. After presenting its first case of this size in steel on last year’s Fifty Fathoms 70th Anniversary Act 1 limited edition, the Manufacture is now offering it in red gold and titanium, as well as including it in the current collection.

Retaining their predecessor’s pleasing proportions, these new 42 mm Fifty Fathoms Automatique watches are available in red gold and grade 23 titanium. The elegance and sophistication of gold makes them alluringly chic, while grade 23 titanium endows them with a sporty look. Reputed to be the purest of its kind, this metal is lightweight and highly resistant to scratches and corrosion, alongside its anti-allergenic properties.

The collection’s characteristic sapphire-topped bezel is also synonymous with robustness and ensures impeccable legibility. Beating at the heart of these new Fifty Fathoms Automatique watches is Calibre 1315: a movement boasting unrivalled chronometric (precision timing) performance and that is designed, built, produced, assembled and adjusted in-house. Equipped with a stop-seconds function, it enables extremely precise time-setting. This calibre entirely decorated in keeping with Haute Horlogerie traditions has an 18K red gold oscillating weight – also decorated and sporting an NAC coating – whose design is inspired by the rotor of the historical 1953 timepiece.

Presented with a blue or black dial, the red gold and titanium versions come with a wide choice of straps (in matching colours) ranging from sail-canvas to NATO and a Tropic textured rubber iteration inspired by the 1953 model, while the titanium bracelet rounds off the range dedicated to the case in the same material.

The new, non-limited Fifty Fathoms Automatique red gold or grade 23 titanium timepieces are available in a wide range of combinations and look set for a bright future with their long-awaited smaller diameter.
