NEW: Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet Phase de Lune

Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet Phases de Lune in steel (5054 1110 B52A) has been joined by two new variants – one in satin-brushed grade 23 titanium, and one in satin-brushed red gold.

The Bathyscaphe may be a diver’s watch collection, but the Quantième Complet Phase de Lune has the unusual combination of diving watch with complications that are usually seen in Blancpain’s Villeret line – a complete calendar with a moon phase. Basically, it’s that style of Villeret for those who prefer a more tool rather than dress, look.

With a size of 43mm and thickness of 13.4mm, they are both water resistant to 300m. They feature unidirectional satin-brushed titanium or satin-brushed 18kt red gold bezels with a matte ceramic insert and a Liquidmetal™ or Ceragold™ diving scales, respectively.

The red gold model with a sunburst blue gradient dial, with gold markers, hands and moon. The titanium model has a sunburst anthracite dial with rhodium-plated hands and moon.

Inside is the in-house automatic Calibre 6654.P, beating at 28,800VPH with three days of power reserve. The red gold model has a red gold oscillating weight and the titanium one, an anthracite NAC-coated one.

The Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet Phase de Lune in red gold comes with a blue NATO-style or sailcloth strap, the second option with either a pin buckle or a folding clasp. The titanium model comes on a titanium bracelet or a grey NATO or sailcloth strap.
.
Pricing is an RRP of CHF 14,800 for the titanium model on a NATO, CHF 17,200/ AUD 25,400 for the titanium on a bracelet, and CHF 28,000/ AUD 43, 600 for the rose gold model with a pin buckle.
