Blancpain Fifty Fathoms are inextricably linked to the emotional value of the ocean. The romantic fifty-year-old born from the love of the ocean, grew up in the exploration of the ocean, and finally gave back to the ocean’s original heart-through the love and care of the ocean, to help modern people return to their spiritual homeland sleeping on the bottom . The Fifty Fathoms diving watch introduced in 1953 is also constantly being developed and improved. Come enjoy this 50021-12B30-52B watch today.
The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms GMT 50021-12B30-52B watch has an oversized 48MM. The case is made of titanium. The bezel is gear-shaped, which enhances the underwater friction. The bezel is also luminous under the water. Yes, this design is also rarely seen in diving watches. I actually only saw it for the first time. Just like Rolex’s water ghost and Omega’s hippocampus, they only have a luminous circle on the bezel, and this indeed has scales and numbers on it, which greatly increases the safety factor underwater. The diving case of this scale is generally not very thin. This watch is 16.95mm, does it have the feeling of a sea lord? The dial is black, the hour markers are cyan and have a luminous coating. The number on the outer circle of the dial is 0-23, which indicates the time in the second time zone with a red needle at the tip; the date window is slightly smaller at 3 o’clock. 500fathom above 6:00 means five hundred 噚, 噚 is an English length unit (the word is no longer used in mainland China), 1 噚 is 6 feet (foot), about 1.8288 meters (meters), it is not an international unit system. It shows that it has a waterproof effect of 1000M, and the helium exhaust valve at 10 o’clock. Its strap is a woven canvas strap and a folding clasp, which makes it more reliable under water.
The feature of this Fifty Fathoms GMT series 50021-12B30-52B watch is its first-class waterproof performance and dual time zone function. Its waterproof foot is 1000M deep, which is considered to be among the best in the diving watch. It can also be said that it has the conditions for a professional diving watch. The unidirectional rotating bezel can record the dive time, and the luminous outer ring makes it possible to read the time clearly in any environment and safely float up. The dual time zone function allows it to know the time of two places on a watch at the same time, which is also a very good function. The helium exhaust valve at 10 o’clock is an indispensable tool for deep-water diving meters, because helium will enter the surface in the deep sea. This valve can discharge helium, which is the pressure balance between the inside and outside of the table. The only pity is that the calendar window is too small, and we who are used to the large calendar window are not too cold about this small calendar window.
The Fifty Fathoms GMT series 50021-12B30-52B watch uses the Caliber 1315 caliber made by Blancpain. It has a 120-hour power reserve and the ability to work underwater for a long time. The structure of the movement can be clearly seen through the back of the back. The most interesting one is the three-lobed rotor, just like the propeller of a submarine, as if you have underwater swimming without worrying about physical exertion. In fact, the design method of this special type of oscillating weight is also very common. There are airplane-type and tire-type oscillating weight in brands such as IWC. The back cover is screw-in, this design can also support its waterproof effect of 1000M underwater.
All in all, this Blancpain Fifty Fathom GMT 50021-12B30-52B watch looks domineering, it is an out-of-the-box deep-water bomb, all functions are for its waterproof service. The luminous bezel and hands make it have a good time reading ability under water. The one-way bezel makes the wearer safer underwater. The helium exhaust makes it fearless of the deep sea challenges. Its price is 224,000 yuan, which is a little more expensive than ordinary diving watches, but its professionalism is unquestionable, and it also has dual-time functions. Maybe it’s not the best in a diving watch; it’s not the best in two watches, but if you want to buy a watch with both functions, it is definitely a smart choice.
