Watch details real shot display:
The case is made of stainless steel with a diameter of 40 mm. It is moderately sized and waterproof to 300 meters. After polishing, light and shadow can be seen. 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. The crown is engraved with the ‘JB’ brand logo. It features a pit pattern for easy adjustment and is equipped with shoulder pads.
The black dial is equipped with contrasting Super-LuminNova luminous coating scale indicators, which ensure the legibility of the time even when diving in turbid waters.
One of the highlights of this watch is the circular humidity indicator at 6 o’clock on the dial. If moisture penetrates the watch, the small disc will change from white to red to alert the wearer.
It is equipped with Blancpain’s self-winding movement 1151, equipped with two main barrels connected in series, and has a power reserve of up to 4 days. Through the sapphire crystal on the back of the watch, you can admire the precision movement of the movement and the pure gold rotor with NAC (a platinum alloy) coating.
This movement is equipped with a diamagnetic silicon hairspring. Silicon material has many important attributes: first, silicon has low density and light weight, so it has strong shock resistance; in addition, silicon can resist magnetic interference; finally, silicon hairspring can be made into almost perfect geometry, thereby improving the isochronism of the movement To improve the accuracy of the watch.
This watch is limited to 500 pieces and comes with a NATO military strap, a marine canvas strap, or a stainless steel bracelet with a safety buckle.
