About Blancpain Fifty Fathoms
When it is time to hit the ocean waves, you need a wristwatch that can withstand the salty sea spray, one which is good enough for use by the United States Navy. You need a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. Founded in Villeret, Switzerland, in 1735, Blancpain SA is a company specializing in the design, manufacture, and distribution of luxury watches. With a focus on the finest craftmanship and components, Blancpain prides itself on never producing quartz watches, or watches with digital displays. Furthermore, the company produces fewer than 30 watches a day, and each piece is the work of a single watchmaker to ensure consistently high standards. The results are beautiful, durable timepieces with precision movements and eye-catching style. Blancpain's passion for the underwater world dates back to 1953, and the production of the first modern diver's watch. The Fifty Fathoms collection embodies that passion, making it an obvious choice for divers and underwater photographers. Even Jacques-Yves Cousteau wore a Fifty Fathoms watch in his award-winning film, "The Silent World." For high quality watches with water resistance up to 30 bar, self winding calibers, and timeless style, shop the vast inventory on eBay for something from the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection.
