    A newly arrived funky wearer for a life on the go.... It’s fun, it’s unassuming with just a touch of pearly elegance, it’s a steel case, it’s a Seiko quartz movement, water resistant 3ATM, and a saffiano style double wrap strap — and it’s a limited edition; what’s not to like?

    I know I’ve posted this (new) £118 beater before but I’m still impressed by the build and design. Not just a pretty face .....

    ..... but also a nice caseback,

    .... a signed crown,

    I picked this up 4 or so years ago in the same manner I find most of my watches; luck, cunning, and mostly being dumb enough to bumble into buy first and due diligence after ; )

    This model was always on my list - the original Blancpain FF is truly a landmark piece - and I just got really lucky to have one come along that needed some work.

    The OEM strap was too short, and I hate wearing a watch on the last hole. Finally acquired an appropriate strap and moved the buckle over when I swapped it. Now it can get some wrist time.
    HAGDA!

    One of my favorite watches and movements, the prior generation SMPc with the tried and true 2500D. +/- 1-2 SPD, day in, day out. Bulletproof. Also love the glossy black dial on this model.

    Excuse the extra post. Played with a macro lens for a couple of minutes to get into the finishing. I’m impressed with the applied indices and the printing.

    Nice Speedy. ‘71 or thereabouts? Looks like a step dial.
