The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is a legendary watch which was designed in 1953 for the French elite divers unit and was named after its ability to withstand the pressure at a depth of fifty fathoms (one hundred meters). The 500 Fathoms is an extension of the Fifty Fathoms collection but has its own design based around its forty eight millimeter titanium case. The watch is designed to be able to withstand the pressure at a depth of five hundred fathoms (one thousand meters) and makes use of a helium escapement valve. The dial features a luminescent base which is designed to provide extra readability at large depths, the strap is made of rubber lined sail canvas. It uses the Blancpain Caliber 1315 automatic movement which incorporates a Glucydur balance with micrometric regulating screws, which helps to prevent any jarring from disturbing the smooth running of the watch giving it a five day running time.
