Blancpain Presents Fifty-five Bathyscaphe Diving Watch

As early as the end of the 1950s, the Blancpain Bathyscaphe diving watch series for men and women was launched, inspired by Swiss explorer Jacques Piccard Deep sea adventure. The new Fifty Fathoms Bathhe watch inherits the excellence of classic timepieces, brings together cutting-edge innovations in watchmaking, and makes a new interpretation of these two extraordinary masterpieces.

The new 2013 watch inherits many elements of the earlier style. The overall outline of the timepiece continues the clear and clear style of the previous style, the hands also use the traditional style of the old timepiece, and the date information is displayed by a dedicated window hole. The bezel also retains the design features of the original Bathyscaphe style, and the glittering fluorescent punctuation ensures the readability of the diving timing information in any environment.

New Fifty 噚 Bathyscaphe diving watch, while paying tribute to the glorious tradition, continues the trend of the past and leads the industry’s cutting-edge technology trend. The watch is equipped with Blancpain’s extraordinary modern movement, which is reliable, durable and durable; the mechanical automatic winding movement that powers it has a vibration frequency of 28,800 / hour. The Blancpain watchmaker, who has always focused on creating the perfect movement, uses a silicon hairspring to enhance the accuracy of the movement. The sapphire crystal caseback can be used to see it. Silicon is a non-magnetic element, which has anti-corrosion function and strong resistance to wear and aging. For a long time, watchmaking artisans have always been committed to optimizing the isochronism of timepieces, and the breakthrough of hairspring material is a remarkable feat in this technical field. Blancpain’s other innovation is the Liquidmetal® depth gauge. This amorphous metal alloy prevents any deformation and ensures a perfect fit with the ceramic inner ring. Both materials are solid and durable, which significantly improves the scratch and scratch resistance of the bezel.

Adhering to all the traditions of excellence diving watches, every fifty 噚 Bathyscaphe diving watch is equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel, which accumulates one minute counterclockwise to activate the chronograph function. During the dive, the second hand is clearly visible, and the eye-catching clear dial and gold flashing hour hand ensure that the timing information is easy to see. The new Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe diving watch is water resistant to 30 bar, which is equivalent to a depth of about 300 meters.

Each fifty Bathyscaphe diving watch is equipped with a three-ring NATO military strap, which is large in size and extremely practical, just like the watch itself is reliable and tough. In the 1960s, the British Ministry of Defence urgently needed to find a strong and sturdy strap for use in its military watches. The Third Ring NATO military strap was born. Its name is derived from the reference code of the strap: NATO G10.


Lost From The Maze Parmigiani Toric Watch Tasting

Parmigiani is a world-class brand. Although its output is not large, it is still sought after, and wearing such a niche brand is also very low-key. In Greek mythology, the maze was originally invented by the architect Daedalus to confine the monster Minotaurs. With the passage of time, the maze has been expanded in different countries and cultural backgrounds, but the mysterious nature of the maze is still fascinating.
Today, we introduce to you the Parmigiani TORIC series inspired by the mysterious maze. Its official model is PFH439-2004100.

The PFH439-2004100 watch, inspired by the design of the labyrinth, is divided into two upper and lower layers. The bottom layer is a ring of extremely precious Burmese jade. The platinum dial with a hollow design is superimposed on the top. .
From the appearance alone, the first thing we found was the small seconds at 6 o’clock, and there is a small and cute display of the power reserve, but what is truly amazing about this watch is that it is hidden in the emerald dial. The next minute repeater device adds a lot of fascination to the design of the maze.
With a wonderful minute repeater, the essential is a precision movement with major innovations. In order to integrate the case and the movement more firmly, the watchmaker of Parmigiani added an additional fixing point for this watch. The small parts under the chronograph connect the pawl of the chronograph to the case. This ensures the stability of the chronograph and makes the echoed sound unaffected by vibration. The movement equipped with the flywheel device can not only ensure the continuous supply of energy to the mainspring, but also allow the minute repeater to operate without any noise. The specially-designed large platinum case can make the sound wave oscillate just right and provide perfect sound effect.

The reason why the maze is not diminished is not only the thrill of solving puzzles, but also the value of exploring itself. The maze is also a perplexing structure. Once we enter, we will suddenly lose our way and lose our sense of time. The Parmigiani TORIC series of PFH439-2004100 watches can always sound the alarm for us, let us calmly think and explore our unknown future.
