Blancpain Re-Introduces the Fifty Fathoms "Barakuda"
Blancpain re-issues a tribute to one of its oldest variants of the Fifth Fathoms — the Barakuda. Under its “NOVELTIES” umbrella of Fifty Fathom watches, the Barakuda has a rich history with the frogmen of Germany, serving as a highly durable dive watch to its underwater military. This particular Fifty Fathoms to the German Navy (the Bundesmarine) was also offered in a civilian model which won over collectors with its large two-toned hour markers; the company that distributed these watches was none other than diving specialists Barakuda, and that’s how the watch got its name.

While this re-issue does not follow exact specifications as its predecessor, most watch enthusiasts will find that the modern updates are well suited for today’s world. The clean black dial keeps its two-toned markers intact, but gone is the radioactive Tritium, and in its place are cream-colored faux-aged plots. The case has also been updated to an ultra-slim 40mm design, and the crown gets a little more protection via some very short guards. Other details include a more minimal sapphire bezel, a sapphire display back, 300m of water resistance, and an 18k gold rotor. Power by the twin-barrel Caliber 1151 movement, this Fifty Fathoms Barakuda has a power reserve of 95 hours. Those interested in this Fifty Fathoms homage watch should act now as it is limited to 500 pieces. Head over to your closest AD or Blancpain flagship to reserve one at a price of $13,000 USD.
