Baselworld 2014 is in full swing. New models from major brands are exquisite and beautiful. Blancpain is one of the oldest and oldest watch brands, and it is also remarkable. Next, let us appreciate Blancpain’s new watch along with the real shots sent back by the mission team.
In the late 1950s, Blancpain wanted to create a diving watch suitable for daily wear, so Bathyscaphe was born. In 2013, the brand made a new interpretation of this classic model; This classic timepiece with professional diving performance and elegant appearance adds another new member: the Bathyscaphe flyback chronograph with a new automatic winding movement F385 is officially launched.
The new deep submersible Bathyscaphe flyback chronograph contains Blancpain’s own movement, with a diameter of 13 law minutes and a frequency of 36,000 vibrations / hour. The movement has a built-in column wheel chronograph and a vertical clutch to provide the watch with excellent flyback timing. The wearer can quickly reset to zero and restart the timing function by simply pressing the button at the 4 o’clock position, achieving multiple consecutive rapid timings. In addition, the button is water-resistant to 300 meters, ensuring the safety of underwater operations. At the same time, the watch also uses an anti-magnetic silicon balance spring, so that the movement can get rid of the limitations of the Faraday cage. The watch is also equipped with sapphire crystal back, and the platinum-plated 18K yellow gold rotor with the Blancpain logo is clearly visible, showing the complex and exquisite beauty of the movement.
This watch not only inherits all the key technical elements of the Fifty Fathoms series, but also its appearance and style continue the clear and clear style of the original watch. On the black dial, the hour scales are arranged in simple dots and lines. The date display window is at 4 o’clock; the hands also follow the rectangular style of the original deep diving vehicle Bathyscaphe; the radial pattern and snail-shaped chronograph The dial brings deep beauty to the watch. In addition, the unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel is embossed with Liquid Metal® hour markers. This amorphous metal alloy can perfectly fit the ceramic inner ring, which significantly improves the scratch resistance of the bezel. Watch scales are also coated with a super-fluorescent coating to ensure legible readability in diving environments.
The new deep submersible Bathyscaphe flyback chronograph is 43 mm in diameter and is available in matte black ceramic black dial and matte stainless steel meteor gray dial. Each comes with a NATO military or marine canvas strap, which is tough and sturdy, making it ideal for diving watches. In addition, the stainless steel deep submersible Bathyscaphe flyback chronograph is also paired with a stainless steel bracelet for the first time, showing elegance.
