Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Mil-Space Limited Edition For Hodinkee Ref 500811B30NABA


This Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Mil-Space Limited Edition For Hodinkee Ref:500811B30NABA is tribute to Blancpain’s storied relationship with the U.S. Navy and classic military-inspired watch design. It is comes with booklet, box and warranty card dated in December 2020.

Limited to just 250 pieces, this timepiece features a 40.3mm brushed steel case with 300 meters of water resistance, a sapphire bezel, and a matte black dial with Blancpain’s functional moisture indicator.

While reminiscent of Blancpain’s 2017 Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC, this version sets itself apart with its brushed finish, omission of a date display, and a simplified design. It encapsulates the essence of early dive watches, emphasizing functionality and legibility.

The Fifty Fathoms boasts a remarkable history, originating after World War II when Blancpain’s CEO devised it to track dive times. The moisture indicator, changing color upon water exposure, became a signature feature. Officially adopted by the U.S. Navy in 1955 after rigorous testing, it gained acclaim for its reliability, distinctive dive-time bezel, and robust nylon strap.

This limited edition watch pays homage to this historic legacy, presenting a timeless piece that embodies military precision and functionality within a classic design.
