With this new release, Blancpain has found a clever way to celebrate the 60th anniversary of its iconic Fifty Fathoms without altering the existing version of the watch. The Bathyscaphe belonged to the historical Fifty Fathoms family in the 1950s, and the modern version becomes an attractive alternative to the Fifty Fathoms.
Not just an electronic, high-tech gadget but a watch that can save your live. As the first wrist-type dual frequency PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) that can be worn at all times, the new Emergency II is intended for a wide range of users in a variety of fields around the world, including aviation, navigation, climbing, hiking, exploration, and all manner of extreme activities.
Typical of Longines, this watch offers incredible value for the money. For around 1,600 Euros you get the Longines-exclusive column-wheel chronograph caliber L688 inside 41-mm, 300-meter-water-resistant steel case.
