Blancpain X Fathoms Dive Watch.


Renowned Swiss watchmaker Blancpain has unveiled the X Fathoms dive watch, the most high-performance mechanical diving watch ever produced.  The waterproof masterpiece was launched on Tuesday (25 October) in the depths of the Aquarium at the Dubai Mall in the U.A.E.  The new watch provides professional divers with all the accuracy of an electronic device, while employing the traditional skills of the Swiss mechanical watch industry.


The watch has the most accurate mechanical depth gauge in the world, which can measure up to ninety meters of depth, is water resistant to three hundred meters, and has a five day power reserve.  The titanium case holds a counter that measures decompression times, and the gauge measures the current depth and maximum depth reached.  Further details on the new Blancpain X Fathoms are likely to be released at the Baselworld exhibition in March 2012.

Located in Brussels, Belgium, Nemo 33 is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, with a maximum depth of 34.5 metres (113 ft). Numerous underwater windows allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. There are two large flat-bottomed areas reaching depth levels of 5m (16 ft) and 10m (32 ft), and a large circular pit plunging to a distance of 33m (108 ft). At the 10m mark are also featured several simulated underwater caves. Nemo 33 was designed by Belgian expert diver John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production complex.
