Balber Fifty Fathom Flyback Timing-5200

At the request of my cousin, I will write another article about 50 hours (5200). In fact, the poisoner hopes to write the old 50 hours (5015). joy. It’s very unfortunate that the fifty centenary that came here today is a limited edition of the marine series. Based on the principle of not wasting, I will write the fifty centenary of this blue ceramic. The history of Fifty Fathoms can be traced back to the ancestor of the diving watch. In the 1950s, Mr. Jean-Jacques Fiechter, Blancpain’s chief executive who was passionate about diving, based on his experience and needs in daily diving. Set out to build a reliable, tough and strong diving watch that can accompany him to explore the charming ocean. After research and development, the first modern diving watch was born in 1953. This watch was named ‘Fifty Fifty Fathoms’. This watch has the indispensable characteristics of a diving watch-water resistance, brightness, ruggedness, rotating bezel . The first fifty is a black dial with bold, large digital time scales, supplemented by refined lines: triangle, circle, square, with the first unidirectional rotating bezel. Since the launch of Fifty Fathoms, the appearance has not changed much. Until the 60th anniversary of the new replica series of deep submersibles, Bathyscaphe, launched in 2013, it has become the two main forces of the current fifty. Distinguishing the old fifty and the new fifty is also easy to distinguish from the appearance. The large size plus the sapphire outer ring is the old fifty (left), and the new fifty is the small size plus ceramic outer ring (right). On the lineage, of course, the old 50 is more pure. On the innovation, it must be the new 50. The 50 to be described today is made of blue ceramics, and it is also a limited edition of the ocean. In 2014, Blancpain, an ocean enthusiast, launched the global public welfare cause, “Mind the Ocean”, and promised that every time this watch was sold, Blancpain would promise to donate 1,000 euros to continue to contribute to the long-term development of marine protection. From the start of the charity event, Blancpain has launched three limited editions of the Ocean series, each of which is available in 250 limited editions-a total of 750,000 euros in real sponsorship. This is only a limited edition of 2016 in the hands of the poisoner. Dark blue is always associated with the ocean. At the same time, using the stylish ceramic material of Blancpain, this unique 50 噚 timepiece was launched, and the launch price was as high as 148,500, which really made many people retreat. But when I really got started, the royal blue effect was really too toxic under the sun. The blue ceramic effect broke the previous fear of ceramics: poison, virtue, and master. Compared with the classic model, the smaller new model is more suitable for daily wear. The ceramic scale with liquid metal can be seen with delicate brushing, and high-tech gives Blancpain a different sense of the times. The 43.6MM watch is equipped with a timing function that will not be hollow on the dial, and the dial combination is so comfortable. The dark brushed dial surface adopts a symmetrical positive three-eye dial surface plus a calendar combination. The middle is the daily second hand movement, the left and right are the chronograph hour and minute hands; the needle-shaped pointer is commensurate with the graphic scale. From the side, you can see the logo with a large head, and at the same time, the full ceramic drawing is full of vision. You must know that the hardness of ceramic is seven times that of steel. To sharpen ceramics, you can only rely on sharper tools. The design of the timing button is simple. How to ensure the water resistance of 300 meters is believed to be a lot of work on the inside. The ceramic buckle is also much better than the steel buckle. The edges are polished so that the strap is not worn. The inner side of the nautical canvas band is made of hot plastic, which can effectively prevent the odor caused by sweating. Looking at the back, the same ceramic material is used, and the diamond-shaped corners make people think that it is a rotating back cover design; the actual use is a gland design, and the back cover can be pried open-but it is made of ceramic material, plus this Gland design, one careless, if this back cover is scrapped, the cost will be as high as one-third of the price (plus the limited logo originally, it is estimated that it will be specially re-customized, and the other five thousand maintenance costs can not escape, so the ceramic shell is broken Or sell it directly). The movement uses F385. The biggest difference from the traditional F185 chronograph movement is the addition of the flyback function. It is wrong to see many online saying that the F385 is a new self-produced movement design. In principle, it is still something of the fp1185 movement. Of course, improvements have been made on this basis. The balance wheel splint is fixed with a special Y-shaped outer ring. The hollow gear next to it is a component of the flyback function, and the right side is an introductory column to control the timing clutch. The function of flyback timing is to press the four-point flyback button directly under the zero-point start / pause button and then reset button to realize the fast restart timing function under the timing state. The flyback button can save three traditional steps in the timing process-pause, clear, and start, which is equivalent to resetting the timer to zero and starting the function with one click. Speaking of the quality of the movement, Blancpain has always been leading various brands at the same price. Some of them have 36,000 high-frequency silicon hairsprings, beveled edges, 18k gold oscillating weight, and do not forget to print the logo of the ocean . F385 movement, diameter 31.8mm, thickness 6.65mm, 37 diamonds, number of parts 322, automatic winding, flyback function, swing frequency 36000 times / hour, power 50 hours, silicon balance spring, fine adjustment balance wheel without clamping, guide wheel Column clutch. Under the influence of the ETA suspension of many brands, Blancpain has never had to worry about this problem by relying on the large FP manufacturers, and the advantages of the movement have become more obvious. This enables Blancpain to focus on making good products, and if it can work harder on channel promotion, I believe it is also a promising brand.
