Saw this questioned recently, so curious …

… as to which diver was first. There have been many articles stating Blancpain FF before Rolex Sub. But told Rolex Sub was presented to the public in May 1954 at the Basel fair, compared to Blancpain patent below dated after. Or does it really not matter

No Radiations vs. No Radiations

Thoughts on these two, is the only significant difference the size? Is the 45mm too large, given / compared to the 40mm smaller option? Is bezel color different, or same just dependent on lighting? 45mm — 5015B-1130-52A Fifty Fathoms 40mm — Blancpain 5008

Just for the pleasure of sharing…

Hello dear friends! I’m happy to share this watch captured just a couple of days. The Blancpain FF has been haunting my horological soul for many many long years and last week I had the unexpected chance to get this piece. I know the most coveted variants

Vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Milspec. It is all about the light.

An " Ex " which I traded for another vintage Fifty Fathoms. Quite cool looking, isn't it? Best, Nicolas

Do you prefer strap or bracelet on your FF?

Have the X-70 on a Leman. What an amazing bracelet. Thinking about finally getting a FF (traditional, non bathy). Curious how people feel about a strap or bracelet on these models?

Haven’t posted this one in a while. Finally took the DD off.

I wish it was as warm outside as it is inside! All the best, my friends, Tony
