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.
The new watch, the Fifty Fathoms 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms Aqua Lung', comes with a number of changes over the current Fifty Fathoms in the details on its dial, bezel and strap. The watch simply bears the text 'Aqua Lung' like its predecessors at the 12 o’clock position. The other changes over the current Fifty Fathoms include new hands, different hour markers, the 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 back in the '60s.
There is not much more information on the watch at the moment. We will update this once more information is available.
