Bioceramic Scuba Fifty Fathoms Collection was born out of collaboration between Blancpain and Swatch. It’s a project that pays tribute to a watchmaking icon as well as a celebration of the oceans. Through this project, Swatch is celebrating another Swiss watchmaking icon, Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms. This collection has revolutionized watchmaking by becoming the first, true, reliable diver’s watch. Launched in 1953, the Fifty Fathoms was developed by a diver to meet the needs of underwater exploration. From that moment, this collection has become the first choice of professional timekeeping tool for professional divers and elite marine corps around the world.
