The largest world aquarium and Underwater Zoo in Dubai Mall recently saw the presentation of Blancpain’s newest diving watch X Fathoms. The brand new Blancpain watch model fits its iconic ancestor’s 1953 characteristics and a mechanical depth-gauge what makes Blancpain X Fathoms diving watch the most high-end mechanical watch for diving ever produced.
Through the testing and researching Blancpain’s specialists found out that satin-brushed titanium (X Fathoms’s case material) is a perfect material for depth-gauge membrane. It is all due to amorphous metal’s resistance to permanent deformation and to its’ elastic properties. In comparison with steel, satin-brushed titanium allows to reduce the watch thickness. This metal also gains in precision. The alloy long-term stability is gained by avoiding the microcracks’ risks. By the way, each X Fathoms watch has an individual calibration which gives max precision of depth indications.
Blancpain X Fathoms watches for diving features 90 meters depth measure and separate indication on the zero-15m scale. Its retrograde 5 minute counter for decompression stops gives diver mobility. The timepiece’s movement bases on Blancpain Calibre 1315. And if know well the Blancpain diving watches you are aware that this movement is successfully working in several watch models from Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection. The watch’s three barrels provides 5-day power reserve and are also equipped with a silicon balance spring which helps to withstand magnetic disturbances. Self-winding mechanism is set into the 55.65mm case with the water-resistance to 30 bar.
The most top-performance rubber strap ever created gives the perfect fit on your wrist allowing the water to soak under the watch back in order to come in contact with the membrane. Matte black dial makes perfect contrast with the three-colored luminescence which distinguish indications under water.
Good to see a talnet at work. I can’t match that.
