HOT Blancpain replica watches at
The Replica Blancpain (ref. 5015-1130-71) Fifty Fathoms was the initial modern dive watch. Yes, you read that correctly. While many people would instinctively give this title up to the more well-known Rolex Submariner, the Fifty Fathoms actually debuted a number of innovations 12 months before the Submariner. Even though the first commerical Fifty Fathoms was already released in 1953, the story goes slightly further back than that. Captain Robert Maloubier and Lieutenant Claude Riffaud, commanders of the French Combat Diving School, would look for a goal-built watch to get about the wrist of the most extremely elite dive soldiers in the world and couldn't find almost anything to suit their needs. Remember, at this time there were no dive computers plus a watch was absolutely necessary for ensuring both personal safety and coordinated timing during difficult missions. They drew up some requirements due to this ideal watch and shopped it around to be able to companies, but none planned to invest in whatever they saw as a specialized niche. Luckily, Blancpain CEO Jean-Jacques Fiechter was an avid diver and thought i would team up with the commanders to create the timepiece they needed.
