Blancpain Bronze Fifty Fathoms

A vintage stainless steel Fifty Fathoms is enough to get any watch nerd excited, but what about Fifty Fathoms...in bronze? The Hodinkee Shop has come across one of the nine examples known to be in existence and with bronze making a big comeback to watches, this rare piece could not have surfaced at a more perfect time. Manufactured in the 1950s, the 41.5mm watch features radium markers on a black dial and an automatic A. Schild caliber 1361 with hacking seconds. 

$65,000, hodinkee.com
