    Fifty Fathoms titanium clasp for Bathyscaphe

    Does anyone have the titanium deployant clasp? An AD told me that it exists although we donít know what it looks like. I am considering ordering it for my ceramic Bathyscaphe. The ceramic case is dark grey (not black), a bit darker than normal titanium.

    I would appreciate some photos (on dark blue or black strap) to gauge how well the look will match, if at all. I believe the deployants are universal across the classic FF and the Bathyscaphe. Any advice is much appreciated!

    I have it. Itís not cheep but it is good. I added a photo of the inside of the deployant. It has a retaining screw on the inside so it canít pop out. This is good but you will need to have it be the right hole to be comfortable. After wearing in my sailcloth strap I found the right hole but also switched the strap sides to get the right fit. Mine clasps with the extra bits of the hole side of the strap facing me, similar to the way a big pilot is set up.

    Oh and itís not for the bathyscaphe but is for the same strap so works perfect.

    The only picture I've seen of a Blancpain Bathyscaphe deployant is here:

    Thank you for the pics. The one you have is titanium and brushed? I have seen the steel polished one at the AD on a classic FF. That one is too light and shiny for my watch.

    Yes titanium and brushed. There are some shiny parts where the brush is almost gloss but it matches the watch case perfectly.

    Thank you! Nice deployant. It looks like it is too light for my use though. My case is closer in color (hue) to the rotor than to the movement.

    FWIW, I don't think there is a titanium deployant. As far as I know, all the BP deployants are stainless, even if shipped on a titanium watch. For example, my titanium 500 fathoms has a stainless 500 fathoms marked deployant with stainless steel mark on the inside of the deployant.

    I second that, I looked at clasps a week ago at the BP boutique and no mention was made of a titanium version.

    Also, be very careful to not screw in that retaining screw too much lest you snap off the screw head. I learned that the hard way unfortunately.
