Blancpain Fifty Fathoms tribute

Blancpain is re-releasing one of its most famous watches with the Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC. The watch is styled just like their original military watches from the '50s with a handful of updates that include a 210-component in-house automatic with a silicon balance-spring and four-day power reserve, a stainless steel 40mm case, a sapphire caseback that gives you a view of the movement and the solid gold rotor, Super-LuminNova indexes, and a water-tightness indicator at six o'clock.
