1953 – Rolex Submariner is launched

What was special about 1953 in terms of horological landmarks and diving watch history? Apart from being the year that Blancpain introduced the Fifty Fathoms it was also the year that Rolex released their world famous Rolex Submariner.

Decades of Experience building the perfect Diving Tool

Creating one of the most desirable dive watches on the planet doesn’t happen over night. All Fifty Fathoms models incorporate the signature elements responsible for establishing their legendary ancestors as the archetypal diver’s watch. It’s those same clear cut design choices, supported by decades of real world professional diving that come together to build this modern classic timepiece.

Blancpain – Protecting the Oceans

Blancpain design and manufacture some of the world’s finest dive watches but their interest in the oceans doesn’t stop there. They have an active interest in the protection of the oceans through their Blancpain Ocean Commitment program (external link). Their commitment to the oceans of the world is focused on Awareness, Exploration and Preservation.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Ocean Commitment III
Progression through Passion, Innovation and Risk

The latest models to the range are all uniquely extraordinary achievements from both a technical and aesthetic perspective. They can all be seen as a tribute to the pioneers from the 1950’s who made scuba diving the “sport” it is seen as today. Without their dedication, risk taking and passion the opportunity for underwater exploration would not have progressed to where it is today. It’s this history of passion and innovation that continue to inspire Blancpain – moving forward with modern innovative materials and new technical solutions.

How deep is a Fathom?

1 Fathom = 6 feet (1.83 metre) – so 50 Fathoms = 300 feet (91.5 metres)

In 1952 when this watch was first developed 300 feet was believed to be the most a human could dive using a single tank of Oxygen. In today’s terms that’s not quite deep enough – which is why all Fifty Fathoms watches are certified water resistant to a depth of at least 1000 feet (300m). However, we don’t think the “Blancpain 166.6 Fathoms” really cut it with the marketing team – thus the preservation of the original name – the “Fifty Fathoms
