This is the second “tribute” model in the 50 Fathoms watch collection and to get both models straight you’ll need to pay close attention to the names. This one is the Blancpain Tribute to 50 Fathoms Aqua Lung watch, whereas last year’s model is the Blancpain Tribute to 50 Fathoms watch (note no Aqua Lung at the end).
As it is a limited edition, I am not exactly sure how many pieces will be made but this model is very attractive. Is it more so than last year’s model with the “no radiation” dial? Just a different look. This Tribute to the Aqua Lung has a more mainstream feel, which I like. The case and movement are the same as you’ll find in the standard 50 Fathoms watch. That means it is in steel and 45mm wide. It also has an in-house automatic movement with several days of power reserve and I love that blue-tinted nautilus style automatic movement on the rotor.
