BLANCPAIN X-FATHOMS IN ITS NATURAL HABITAT

Marc A. Hayek, CEO & President of Blancpain tested for the first time in real conditions the most extreme mechanical diving watch ever produced.

THE BLANCPAIN X-FATHOMS

Nice underwater photos, but that isn’t so spectacular.

Unless you realize these photos are made by Marc A. Hayek

Marc A.Hayek is a passionate diver and underwater-photographer, resulting in these beautiful photos.

More over he also compiled the specifications for the new X-Fathoms.

The depth gauge indicates the depth with two central hands; one indicates depths from 0 to 15 meters and a second hand indicating to depths of 90 meters.

This is actually very easy to read when diving, because the first 15 meters can be read with much more precision.

And these meters, at least in my experience, are the most critical part of every dive.

This is the second time Marc A.Hayek takes the X-Fathoms diving; the first time was during the spectacular launch event in the 11 meter deep Dubai Mall Aquarium.

An interesting fact is that the first Fifty Fathoms in 1953 was co-developed by Jean-Jacques Fiechter, managing director of Blancpain at the time and one of the earliest sports divers in Switzerland.
