The Fifty Fathoms Tourbillon 8 Jours diver's watch epitomises the encounter between horological complexity and high performance. Its flying tourbillon whirls inside a dedicated opening in the refined blue dial. This new model comes in a surprisingly light titanium version, as well as a red gold version ensuring a striking presence on the wrist.
Introduced in 2007 with the launch of the contemporary Fifty Fathoms collection, the Fifty Fathoms Tourbillon 8 Jours is a symbiosis of Blancpain's savoir faire in the realm of diver’s watches and its expertise in horological complications. Tried and tested for more than a decade, it has established itself as a superlative timepiece, enabling the beauty of the tourbillon mechanism to be admired even at great depths.
The two new versions of this prestigious diver's watch showcase this sophisticated complication through a refined blue dial graced with a sunburst finish. The tourbillon, referred to as "flying" because it has no upper bridge to drive its cage, appears to be floating in a large round opening at 12 o'clock. The technical complexity of this watch construction contrasts with the sporty style of the hour-markers, hands and bezel. The latter remains a key element of the watch, with its notched edge giving added grip, its unidirectional rotation system and its slightly domed scratch-resistant sapphire insert.
