Wristwatch BLANCPAIN Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, Ref.:5000-0130-B52A
The Fifty Fathoms collection embodies Blancpain`s passion for the underwater world that was originally expressed in 1953 with the creation of the first modern diver`s watch. Ever since, Blancpain has been accompanying divers and underwater photographers in their exploration, thus contributing to the knowledge of this fascinating universe and to the motivation to protect it.
At the beginning of the 18th century, Jehan-Jacques Blancpain perceived the potential in a completely new business activity: watchmaking. In 1735, he founded the Blancpain brand, setting up his first workshop on the upper floor of his house at Villeret, in the present-day Bernese Jura. By recording his name in the official property register of the municipality of Villeret, this pioneer had created an establishment, which is now the world's oldest watchmaking brand.
