The origin of this collection was a legendary watch. In 1953, Blancpain created the Fifty Fathoms, a diving watch for the frogmen of the French army. Worn by Cousteau himself, this timepiece took on iconic status. Today, Blancpain produces it as a family of watches water-resistant to a depth of as much as 1,000 m. This collection is the expression of Blancpain's special relationship with the world of the sea. 

It is unflinchingly sporty, and combines watchmaking expertise and innovative materials in its subtle but tough construction. The exceptional performance of these models makes them capable of standing up to any situation, even the most extreme. Sophisticated instruments serving active people, these fearless watches are also timeless icons, made in the image of the legendary Fifty Fathoms.

Robust and contemporary, they display sporty looks and vigorously masculine design. Heirs to their ancestor, the Fifty Fathoms, these models possess a unidirectionally rotating bezel. Using this system, the diver positions an index mark against the time of his dive to show him when he must return to the surface. The figures and hands, visible in the dark, are set off by a dial that is usually dark in colour. The watches in the Sport collection are enhanced with complications that are useful to active people, such as GMT indication or the flyback chronograph.
