Current model of basic fifty fathoms is from 2007, height of the big dinner plate watch craze. Thus the case size is 45mm vs the original of 42? Or 40?
Now that the trend is going back to 40mm smaller size and Blancpain knows that. But instead of updating basic model to smaller size, they release 40mm only with special editions like mil spec and ocean commitment which no one can get a hold of. They’re sold out in 5 minutes despite 17k price tag.
My vote is stop playing games and release what the people want... a 40mm still sport watch aka 40mm fifty fathoms. And do this while the market is hot.
Oh wait too late, we now have Coronavirus.
