Narrated by Emmy Award Winner Peter Coyote, the film recounts the most important events in the creation and evolution over seven decades of this iconic watch through first hand interviews with Jean-Jacques Fiechter, its inventor; Robert "Bob" Maloubier, OBE, who oversaw the French Navy’s adoption of the Fifty Fathoms as its dive watch; and Marc A. Hayek, Blancpain’s President & CEO, who revived the Fifty Fathoms.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
