Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms is a new take on the original Blancpain dive watch from the 1950s. The Fifty Fathoms was produced in 1953, featuring the first unidirectional rotating bezel. This was revolutionary and made the watch the progenitor for the technical design of all dive watches. Designed for elite combat swimmers in the military, the timepiece was well ahead of its time. With a diameter of 42 mm and featuring a screw-down back, O-ring seal and the first ever automatic movement in a dive watch, the Fifty Fathoms became the first modern dive watch. It was so robust and battle-tested that elite units in various naval forces were kitted out with the watch. Its water resistance of 50 fathoms, which is equivalent to a diving depth of 91 metres, gave the collection its name. Oceanographer Jacques Cousteau was probably the most famous person to sport the Fifty Fathoms, Blancpain’s most popular collection today.

I love this extraordinary watch more than ever. Thanks to the easy-to-change leather, rubber and textile straps, this timepiece is extremely versatile and looks sporty, even elegant. The titanium case, which is very light, is also sensational.


The HUBLOT brand fascinates me because of its incredible creative spirit when it comes to materials, such as Magic Gold, Texalium, synthetic sapphire, SAXEM or ceramics in various colours. In addition, HUBLOT designs a variety of ingenious models together with renowned artists, which makes the brand even more exclusive.

My favourite watch is the Blancpain Villeret Quantième Complet. It is actually a men’s model, but I think the watch with 40 mm diameter looks breathtakingly beautiful on a woman, too. The classic complete calendar with Blancpain’s signature moon phase looks stunning with its simple elegance. Each function on the complete calendar can be adjusted individually using the practically invisible under-lug correctors.

Founded in 1735, Blancpain is the oldest watch brand in the world. The Villeret models have barely been aesthetically altered since the early days of Blancpain, yet they still look very contemporary. They have become a timeless classic that is a dependable accessory for generations.

I particularly like this ZENITH Defy Midnight 36 mm for the watch’s combination of features and unique selling points. Firstly, it has an extraordinary colour gradient on the dial, which is highly attractive. You can easily pair the watch with different colourful straps yourself if you find the steel bracelet version too traditional. Try a suitably black strap on one side and a grey one on the other. It is sure to look amazing! Secondly, this model boasts excellent technical credentials thanks to the ZENITH Elite manufacture movement. Overall, it is excellent value for money given what the timepiece offers.

For me, this watch fulfils all the criteria that a watch has to fulfil. Its refined design radiates sporty elegance. The case and the stainless steel bracelet tenderly embrace my wrist. Every time I want to read the time, the sparkling diamonds on the bezel make my heart beat faster. The beautifully designed dial with its rose gold hour markers lets me combine the watch ideally with any piece of jewellery, and the open watch back lets me enjoy the fascinating finesse of the movement.


The Piaget brand fascinates me for its 145-year family history, its rarity and the timeless elegance that is reflected in the entire watch collection.
