An old picture of an old love: Blancpain Fifty Fathoms 50th Anniversary.

Oct 08, 2021,21:57 PM

In one of our friends' collection for some 12 years now, but not forgotten. And I am sure that it is cherished. 

This one has a lot of assets, such as the good case size ( 40, 5 mm ), the superb sapphire bezel, the dial... Well this bloody date is here, true, but what a lovely watch!

I really wish BP would give us a Fifty Fathoms

…in the 40-41mm range. I would buy immediately.

Without date, definitely.

That would be a dream

Yes., this is really a lovely piece.

And here the date is not so … bloody. The date wheel colour is chosen tastefully and the date window doesn’t disturb the symmetry and harmony of the dial. So in this case everything is fine for me. 😊

My pleasure. 😊

P.S.: The position of the date window on the Bathyscaphe dial looks less harmonious for me. Perhaps this is due to the different size and position of the indices? ...  

She is definitely cherished my dear friend

It is a gem of a diver. Hard to make one sexier or more venerable than this ...  

Hmmmm, so happy to see it!

Maybe something I should wear when we meet!

Alas... A well known game.
