An Aquatic Icon

Staying close aesthetically to the Fifty Fathoms that was created for professionals in 1953, this automatic version has a domed sapphire crystal. It is guaranteed waterproof down to 300 meters (985 feet). The titanium casing which is both lightweight and resistant houses a black face that contrasts with the luminous elements.

Retro Diving

Inspired by the Tudor models produced from 1950 to 1970, the Black Bay Bronze with its slate grey face is waterproof down to 200 meters (660 feet). Certified COSC, this watch has a woven Jacquard strap with gold banding, which is a throwback to the straps made from parachute fabric that French navy divers would make for their watches.
