Blancpain is taking the same general Bathyscaphe design and introducing it in a smaller 38mm case size – replica Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe. Not only is the case smaller in diameter at 38mm instead of 43mm, it’s also much thinner, coming in at 10.77mm instead of 13.4mm.
Replica Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe, blue sunburst dial and a blue ceramic bezel with Liquidmetal numerals and markers in it. You’ve got the same pip-shaped hour markers with wedge-shaped markers at three, six, nine, and 12. The wide rectangular hands and the date at 4:30 also remain unchanged.
The movement powering the watch is the caliber 1150, which is an automatic movement with a 100-hour power reserve. You can see it through the large sapphire window set into the screw-down caseback.
