Presentation of the new X Fathoms

World premiere, the most extreme watch ever produced by Blancpain - Geneva, Cité du Temps, from January 16th through February 12th 2012

The Watch Quote™ - January 13th, 2012

What better setting could one hope for to present the new X Fathoms than the Cité du Temps located on the Pont de la Machine bridge spanning the Rhone River? First unveiled at the Dubai aquarium in October 2011, this diver’s watch revisits the iconic characteristics of its Fifty Fathoms forerunner, and combines them with a mechanical depth gauge to create the most high-performance mechanical watch of all time. Bursting with world-first features such as depth measurement to 90 metres and maximum depth reached memory, separate display for the 0-15 m zone with exceptional +/- 30 cm precision, and a 5-minute retrograde counter for decompression stops, this model eloquently demonstrates the innovative ability of the Manufacture from Le Brassus.

The Swiss première presentation will be accompanied by a photography exhibition, featuring shots drawn from the fourth edition of the “Fifty Fathoms” book published by Blancpain and highlighting the fascinating world of scuba diving viewed through the lens of the greatest names in the field. Apnea freediving being the focus this year, the photographers – Aaron Wong, William Winram, Fred Buyle and Ethan Daniels – have immortalised unique encounters between man and shark. They set the stage for some dreamlike and poetic depictions, since the absence of diving equipment enables them to create and capture certain truly exceptional moments.

In addition, this visit will provide you with an opportunity to discover or re-discover the various Blancpain collections, including the legendary Fifty Fathoms, the first modern diving watches that have accompanied frogmen since 1953.

We will be delighted to welcome you during the first exhibition week from Monday January 16th to Friday January 20th 2012, in order to give you a personal presentation of the various models on show.
