    Blancpain has released the Bathyscaphe in 38mm this year, if you're somewhat put off by the 43mm case. ;)

    However the proportion of the dial, bezel, and hour marking is a little off.

    Yes, the date window placement might have made the proportion a little off. But tell me that's not a beautiful piece. That's the latest 38mm, btw. :D

    Am seriously considering this piece...even tempted by the one marketed to the ladies and all white...

    Sorry but I like the old Lemans much better. The Aqualung can't be beat.

    If you don’t mind my asking, where did you find those canvas straps? I’ve been looking all over and it seems the only option is ordering custom straps off of Etsy. 23mm lug width is proving to be quite the hurdle canvas strap-wise.

    That's a good looking watch. I'm in love with those LUGS! Extremely understated watch but I hate the strap. My skin is very sensitive and my wrist will be itching all day if I'm not wearing it on leather, steel or gold.
