Blancpain and Hodinkee are back together and this time they've come out with a modern take on the classic Fifty Fathoms. Used by the world's navies for decades, the Fifty Fathoms has long been a favorite by both professionals and enthusiasts and now Hodinkee is recapturing the spirit of the original with a new limited edition. The Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC Limited Edition for Hodinkee features a 40.3mm brushed stainless steel case, a no-date matte black dial with a moisture indicator, a stainless steel bezel with a sapphire crystal insert, 300M/984ft water resistance, and a Blancpain 1154 automatic movement with a four-day power reserve.
The watches are limited to 250 pieces and each caseback is individually numbered and engraved with Hodinkee branding. 200 pieces are available now at Hodinkee's online store and 50 will be sold at select Blancpain boutiques.
