Due to the ongoing restrictions caused by a global pandemic, we will likely learn about the Blancpain novelties this year just like we experienced it in 2020. I will try to do my best to provide hands-on photos of all new timepieces if at all possible, this blog post however is meant to provide you with an overview on all officially released models based on the Blancpain press information as we go. This overview will be updated whenever new models are released.
Tribute to Fifty Fathoms No Radiations (March 2021)
Today Blancpain have launched a new Fifty Fathoms limited edition, the Tribute to FF No Radiations. Based on the iconic Fifty Fathoms RPG 1 from the mid 1960s, this 40.3mm timepiece is another outstanding tribute to the Manufacture’s heritage, following the Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MilSpec from 2017 and the Fifty Fathoms Barakuda from 2019.
The Tribute Fifty Fathoms No radiations reference 5008D-1130-B64A is available immediately and limited to 500 pieces worldwide.
The 2021 Saint-Valentin (January 2021)
For this year’s Valentine’s Day Blancpain created a version of the Women Date in a 33.2mm red gold case, again featuring the thematic Cupid’s arrow and pierced heart as the seconds hand. The MOP dial shows diamond hour markers and the oval shaped date window at 3 o’clock.
The watch is limited to 28 pieces and powered by caliber 1151, decorated with a beautifully engraved rotor following the theme. Find the Saint Valentin 2021 here on the Blancpain website.
