Well I have to say that the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is one of my dream watch. I love the design and the simplicity of the watch. Now Blancpain have introduced in Basel 2010, the 'Tribute to Fifty' Fifty Fathoms watch. This watch is a beautiful watch. In fact my dream watch has shifted to this model. I just love the dial. Maybe one day....
This watch is based on the Blancpain issued between 1950 to 1970. It is based on the 'No Radiation' model that Blancpain issued under the Aqualung model or the 'Bund No Rad' watches issued to the Polish and or German military.
