Blancpain is a famous watch designer who is best known for the Fifty Fathoms watch which was released in the early 50s. The French Navy is closely associated with this luxury watch maker and reportedly they ordered a lot of watches for their seamen. Now, the Blancpain establishment is unveiling 500 Fathoms in Cannes.
The model is homage to the world of seafaring and thus comes with strong navy themed look. It has an alternating silver and black dial which looks like a ship’s propeller. It also has Arabic numerals and a certain amount of luminosity. It measures 48 mm in diameter and comes with a rugged Blancpain calibre 1315. It is extremely exclusive and costs 17,400 Euros and is packaged in a great way.
I am quite certain people would rush to buy the few watches left for sale. It would indeed be a great thing if you could manage to get a Blancpain Fathom watch for yourself, as by now most could be sold out anyway! So go ahead and get yourself a Blancpain before your friend does at the club!
