The latest Bucherer BLUE creation is already the second timepiece, jointly created by Bucherer and Blancpain. The attractive reinterpretation of the contemporary and timeless design of the Bathyscaphe and the values it conveys, will captivate diving enthusiasts and watch connoisseurs alike.
The legendary Bathyscaphe was developed by Blancpain at the end of the 1950s as the civilian answer to the military diver’s watch smaller in size yet suitable for use in all conditions.
Former Blancpain CEO Jean Jacques Fiechter, visionary entrepreneur and pioneer of modern scuba diving, created a true 20th century icon. The Bathyscaphe has become a milestone in Blancpain's long diver's watch heritage and developed into one of their most popular collections.
The partnership of Bucherer and Blancpain is based on the pursuit of excellence and visionary entrepreneurship. A long lasting tradition in fine watchmaking and the continuous quest for exploring and expanding boundaries gives life to another exciting BLUE partner edition.
The new timepiece celebrates the partners’ shared love for blue, which has always been the Bucherer colour. It equally symbolises Blancpain's passion for the underwater world: the brand is deeply commitment to ocean exploration and preservation through the Blancpain Ocean Commitment (BOC) initiatives.
The new Bathyscaphe Bucherer BLUE pleases with design elements that are exclusive to this special edition: Blancpain has created a special tone of blue and combined that with the black ceramic case; the dial of the watch features a satin brushed chapter ring highlighting Super LumiNova ® coated hour markers and strikes a fine contrast with the sunburst center. Another refined detail, that only reveals itself at second glance: The watch is fitted with a dedicated blue rotor in 18K gold underlining the collaboration between the two Maisons . All of the elegant design elements that have characterized the Bathyscaphe diver’s watch since the beginning have been retained. This special edition is limited to 188 pieces, exclusively available at Bucherer.
