Inspired by the iconic Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. Built for the demands of today. The C65 is reborn, three radically redesigned and upgraded retro dive watches – with a curved sapphire bezel that’s as elegant as tough. Meet the C65 Aquitaine Automatic, C65 Aquitaine GMT and C65 Aquitaine Bronze. With five percent of all proceeds donated to Blue Marine Foundation.
What the press say about the
“The C65 Aquitaine line is a significant update for the retro dive range. It brings modern specifications and materials to the fore but keeps a size and aesthetic which is sure to attract a lot of attention.”
– Mark Wheeler, Scottish Watches
“Fans of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms will surely relish the chance to own a watch that looks references the famous Fifty Fathoms at a much more palatable price. And objectively speaking, I see little wrong with these watches. Christopher Ward clearly paid attention to wearability, as well as performance.”
- Kenny Yeo, A Blog to Watch
“The angular, light-catcher case is in full force, a nicely polished 41mm of stainless steel. The lugs though have been shortened slightly, which makes it feel a touch smaller on the wrist. Given it’s meant to be a retro throwback, it’s a nice touch, but more importantly makes it sit fantastically on the wrist.”
– Sam Kessler, Oracle Time
And don’t take our word for it! Watchfinder & Co’s Andrew Morgan describes the Aquitaine as “the first luxury watch for enthusiasts…they know they’re getting something extra”.
