    Looks quite nice. Much nicer than any of the modern FFs have until now IMhO.

    $ 33000 are we sure it's just Bronze and not Gold ?
    :D
    IMHO an excellent example how the gap between the poor ( Bio-ceramic ) and the rich ( Bronze which should be Gold at these insane prices ) has gradually become visible in the modern " watch world " :unsure:

    While the Blancapin presentation video says nothing, here's a view of the watch on the wrist... looks big
    Insane price for 9 Karat Bronze-Gold

    I don't know if it's just a shadow due to the lighting, but on that particular watch in that video, the 2 halves of the moisture detector look very misaligned. Like they're either not stuck together right or one is popping up higher than the other along the edge.

    Its ridiculously priced for what it is, but least it doesn’t make me contemplate the absolute futility of life like the nihilism of the bathyscaphe

    Bucherer carries Blancpain in their stores, looks like the price has already been 'Rolexized'.

    So just for the hell of it I went and looked at some of the titanium and ceramic chronos since they're kinda all right. Price aside, I guess I could see myself wearing one sometime.
    But they (and the 3-hand 43mm models) have 23mm lug widths... WTF ::facepalm1::

    Definitely ensures that no matter how much I might warm to the designs, I will never buy one.

    Nothing that expensive should be on a NATO. Kills the deal for me. That aside I think it looks very nice but I really dig fifty fathom. I like a lot of what blancpain does and let’s face it, it’s only money. I could just walk to work if I give up cars I could afford this, my wife would probably take it in the divorce out of spite.

    The Air Command has an attractive dial, is reasonably sized (including a 22mm lug width), and can be had for 50% off retail if you look around a bit.

    The Air Command is the only good Blancpain in recent times. Even at 50% off though it has lots of competition
