I cleared my bucket list item which was “outstanding” for 8 years.
Fifty Fathoms Fifty Fathoms…the name is so catchy, even my non-WIS sister remembers the name. She jokingly asks me sometimes, “so when are you getting a Fifty Fathoms”.
The watch I got today is the most basic version in stainless steel. It is sturdy, and “tight”, almost like the built quality of a military weapon. The bezel is firm, and has very crisp clicks. The crown is sturdy and oversized - one of the firmest most assuring crowns to operate. This is one luxurious diver, yet toolish at the same time. It has design-tension. It almost looks dressy to me, were it smaller and without a bezel, yet it is brutal at the same time.
And the calibre 1315 is gorgeous with it’s simple anglage, large rubies and black rotor. I’ve got 120 hours of juice on this elegant beast.
I should have discovered this watch a longer time ago. But it takes time to know and grow in this hobby.
If you’d ask me what my next dive piece is..I don’t have the answer anymore. My wish is fulfilled.
