In association with Bucherer, Blancpain presents the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS. Available exclusively in the boutiques and on the website of the retail chain headquartered in Luzern, this special model is joining its blue-themed capsule collection.
While Blancpain and Bucherer are both founded on expertise and engaged in a quest for excellence, the two Maisons also share a blue connection. As well as being Bucherer’s iconic color, blue evokes Blancpain’s passion and commitment to the marine world, dating back to 1953 when the brand unveiled the first modern diving watch, named Fifty Fathoms. As a complement to this professional instrument mainly intended for use in a subaquatic environment, the Manufacture developed the Bathyscaphe model, which as of 1956 became a civilian alternative suitable for wear in any circumstances, whether underwater or on land. Reinterpreted by Blancpain in 2013, the Bathyscaphe has since been enriched with numerous complications, including a flyback chronograph now presented in an original version created for the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS.
