Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Grande Date 5050 Watch Hands-On Hands-On

Blancpain‘s Fifty Fathoms family of high-end dive watches has been one of my favorite luxury sport watch collections for a while. At Baselworld 2018 Blancpain introduced a few new models in the Fifty Fathoms collection including my favorite, which is this Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique Grande Date 5050. Let’s compare the Fifty Fathoms 5050 with the still rather popular Blancpain Fifty Fathoms 5015, which I reviewed on aBlogtoWatch here. The 5050 is a newer model with an updated movement and different case materials. With that said, it is not a replacement of the 5015, but rather an additional added flavor. The Fifty Fathoms collection in its current form is certainly an aging model (having been originally debuted in 2007) – though it is faring well even after over a decade of being on the market. The 2018 Fifty Fathoms Grande Date 5050 might not get owners of the 5015 to “upgrade,” but it could easily get even more people into wearing what is a really attractive and good-performing high-end Swiss diver’s watch.
