Blancpain Fifty Fathoms


Blancpain celebrated their 60th anniversary of the Fifty Fathoms diving watch. Alex Kats, from Geneva Seal attended this exclusive event. Alex had nothing but compliments toward the event when he returned to Chicago.

 

The event was located on the beautiful Hudson River in New York. The waterfront establishment was turned into a beautiful underwater oasis. This was perfect for celebrating Blancpain's diving watch collection. Continuously projected on two oversized screens were beautiful underwater photographs taken by renowned divers and photographers such as Laurent Ballesta, Principal of the Gombessa Project, and Dr. Enric Sala, National Geographic Explorer In-Residence for the Pristine Seas Expedition with Blancpain.
Displayed amongst the current Fifty Fathoms collection was also vintage timepieces.

Alex had the opportunity to talk with watchmakers, divers, and Blancpain president.
