What I am trying to tell you is a story towards the unknown. No one knows where the road is going. People are often lost in the endless sea.”
——Stephen Zweig’s Biography of Magellan
- Our Ocean
The ocean has always been a place where mankind has eternally explored and remained curious. From ancient times, from exploring the distance to now, exploring the depth. The relationship between the ocean and humans is like human beings in a huge container. People constantly want to get more from the ocean, but they forget that the ocean world has its own rhythm and self-change.replica watches china
Nowadays, due to the over-exploitation and exploitation of human beings, marine pollution and destruction are making the ocean and the living creatures feel nowhere to escape. In order to better protect the ocean, the United Nations designated June 8 of each year as the “World Oceans Day” at the 63rd UN General Assembly.
- Coming from the ocean to the ocean
The ocean has given humanity endless inspiration. From ancient times to the present, no matter it is a well-known great writer, creator, or inventor, everyone can always get some inspiration from the ocean.
The Blancpain brand, born in 1735, has a deep relationship with the ocean in the history of brand development.
The Fifty Fathoms series contains Blancpain’s passion for the marine world. The brand was officially put into production in the first modern diving watch in early 1953 and defined seven major standards in the industry. Now, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms series is called the originator of diving watches. Since then, the brand has been committed to supporting divers, scientists and underwater photographers in the marine cause, jointly exploring its ever-changing charm, enhancing human understanding of marine knowledge, and promoting the development of marine public welfare protection.
In fact, the great reason for the birth of the Fifty Fathoms series was due to the history at that time. When the war and peace did not know which day came first, countries had a practical and highly waterproof diving timepiece for underwater actual combat. Great demand.
Blancpain is well aware that the seemingly gentle and calm sea is actually dark and turbulent, and the underwater environment is even more demanding for a watch. Fifty Fathoms, with its excellent quality and watchmaking skills, has become the designated watch for the French Navy, and it is a real “underwater warrior” who has served and participated in combat.

Each sold one will donate 1,000 Euros to fund the “Hearts in the Ocean” charity, with a total donation of more than 750,000 Euros. The donations were all awarded to Lauren Ballesta and his team, which became the most solid and powerful source of power for the “Spirulina Expedition Research” project.

The dial is meteor gray, with Luminous fluorescent hands and indexes, and a 23 mm canvas or NATO diving strap.
The 2018 “Heart in the Heart” watch follows the fine tradition of the Fifty Fathoms series, following the main characteristics of the first diving watch in 1953, and adopting the robust and reliable Cal.1151 automatic winding movement to ensure that the watch is continuous for 4 days. Power reserve. The watch is also equipped with a silicon hairspring to protect the movement from magnetic field interference without the need for a built-in anti-magnetic soft iron protective cover; through the transparent sapphire glass case back, the Geneva wave decoration on the movement and the engraved “Ocean Commitment” ( The platinum-plated gold winding oscillating weight is unobstructed. This watch is water-resistant to 30 bar, approximately equal to a depth of 300 meters; it is equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel necessary for diving watches.

In the movie “Me and My Motherland” that paid tribute to National Day last year, the figure of fifty fathoms appeared in the movie. The background of the story In the 1990s, when Hong Kong returned to the motherland, the policewoman (Hui Ying Red) in the movie wore a fifty fathom series watch.
“The Chinese flag is raised at 0 minutes and 0 seconds. This is our bottom line.” After reading the Hong Kong Return Unit, I believe the audience is impressed by the 16 rounds of Sino-British negotiations in the two-second battle. Adjusting the time of the watch in many ways, and ensuring that the national flag of the People’s Republic of China is raised on time is tense and bloody, and the watch is witnessing the great historical moment, that is the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms series.
The latest work in the Fifty Fathoms series pays homage to the pioneers of scuba diving and is a classic. It is their love and dedication to this sport that has broadened human understanding and vision of the underwater world, inspired Blancpain to use various innovative materials and advanced technologies to continuously break the limits of watchmaking technology, and meet the most demanding manufacturing requirements. Keep improving and pursue excellence.
Among them, a fifty fathom watch that the watch friends call it “X fathom” is particularly eye-catching. Of course not just because of the strong appearance design: 55.65mm watch diameter, matte satin titanium metal case, with rubber strap…
The excellent configuration is also an important reason for attracting people: the watch has a mechanical detection function, and the wearer can understand the environment through the watch. In addition, the watch movement is a 9918B self-winding movement. The silicon hairspring can offset the magnetic field interference and improve the accuracy of the watch. At the same time, the three double barrels built into the movement have a power reserve of 5 days.
Blancpain X Fathom also has a number of pioneering inventions, such as a mechanical sounder with a depth of up to 90 meters, which can record the depth of the dive. The 0-15 meter mechanical sounder operating alone has a measurement error of only 30 cm at a water depth of 15 meters. There is also a 5-minute retrograde stop chronograph function specifically designed for divers to decompress during floating. The watch combines powerful functions and extraordinary performance, representing the dominance of the diving watch industry.
