Equipped with arched sapphire crystal, this is a major innovation introduced by Blancpain in 2003-the fiftieth anniversary of the 50th anniversary, which can provide comprehensive protection for the fluorescent scale on the bezel.

   One-way rotating bezel protects diving safety. At the beginning of the dive, turn the zero scale of the rotating bezel to the position indicated by the minute hand; in this way, after entering the water, the diver can directly read the entering water according to the bezel scale indicated by the minute hand. duration.
