Two fellow enthusiasts going for a dive

I just received some photos taken by two fellow Blancpain collectors who enjoy the amazing sport of diving. Both own the most sophisticated mechanical diving watch, the Blancpain X Fathoms, and they love to use it for its purpose.

I think it’s a well known fact that most modern dive watches are never used for diving, some never see a drop of water other than it’s raining and they are exposed to a few sprinkles. Now, with the Blancpain X Fathoms being designed solely to fulfil the duties of a professional instrument and due it’s size being sort of prohibitive to daily casual wear, it really brings ful joy only when used on a dive.

So here are a few shots of the two connoisseurs enjoying the X Fathoms on three different occasions. A heartfelt thank you goes out to the two gentlemen for allowing me to use those photos and share with you!
