BLANCPAIN Fifty Fathoms 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms AQUA LUNG



By TLex BLANCPAIN have released a special edition of the Fifty Fathoms for 2011. Last year they released the Fifty Fathoms 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms' with its iconic 'No Rad' logo. This year's version, the Fifty Fathoms 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms Aqua Lung' comes with a slightly more innocuous detail on its dial. It simply bears the text 'Aqua Lung' as its predecessors did. The only other changes over the current 'FF' come from its simplified bezel minus the minute markers between 12 and 3 and its new strap, which is now complete with circular holes, the way many original Aqua Lung's straps were typically designed.
