Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Tribute to Fifty Fathoms Aqua Lung

Yet another limited edition Fifty Fathoms. This time BLANCPAIN have released a special edition of the Fifty Fathoms for 2011. This follows the highly popular Fifty Fathoms Tribute to Fifty Fathoms with its iconic No Radiation logo.

In this new watch, the Fifty Fathoms 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms Aqua Lung' comes with changes to the current Fifty Fathoms in the details on its dial, bezel and strap. It simply bears the text 'Aqua Lung' as its predecessors did at the 12 o’clock position. The only other changes over the current Fifty Fathoms include new hands, hour markers, removal of the minute markers (first 15 minutes) on the bezel and a new strap. The new strap comes complete with circular holes, the way many original Aqua Lung's straps were typically designed.
