Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Mokarran

Blancpain’s latest version of the Bathyscaphe adds a new color and a no-date option to the brand’s popular range of dive watches. Additionally, the 50-piece limited edition supports conservation efforts to protect the critically endangered great hammerhead shark. WatchTime was able to observe both in their natural habitat.

When Blancpain successfully defined the basics of the modern dive watch in 1953, the company was already 218 years old. For the last (almost) 70 years, the Swiss brand has not only been deeply connected with the history of diving and underwater exploration, it has also become a force in protecting the biodiversity of the oceans. The 2014-founded Blancpain Ocean Commitment initiative (BOC) is a unique program in the watch industry that has already helped a number of environmental initiatives get off the ground (some of them already underway before BOC was launched). The latest example is a project with the Mokarran Protection Society to measure and identify great hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna mokarran) in French Polynesia, and to lay the essential groundwork for more effective conservation efforts in the future. The watch dedicated to this project is the first Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe with a green dial and bezel, limited to just 50 pieces (Ref. 5005-0153-NAB A). It is also the brand’s first no-date version with a 43.6-mm case.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way
