Lip brevets Blancpain: A Photo Session.

Apr 18, 2012,13:25 PM

Our friend Tony aka Diving T came with some marvels in his bag for some photo sessions.

Let's first see his lovely Lip Brevets Blancpain.

Small dioesn't mean uninteresting.

34 mm, maybe, but of sensuality and charm.

The domed plexy, the clean design, the bakelite bezel which looks like the TR 900 one, this is a " great small " watch.

Here is Tony's topic:

Here are my photos:

And the magnificient casebacks with the brand blazon:

For those who think that 34 / 35 mm is too small, just an evilish advice: Try it,you will see.

So, it may be difficult to find the right moment during summer holidays, but be sure that I am working on that... On a not too different note, I will try to check where is Blancpain with the Fathomisti Club... Best, Nicolas

... And you are so right, 34-36 is in many watches enough.. Doesn't have to be 44-46-48mm to do justice. Best and yes, great pictures ;-) Hans P.S. At Basel fair, I had a long discussion with a guy at the Blancpain stand. We talked about the great exhibit... 

Amazing photo of a great watch!

A book will be great, but an owners club will be excellent - maybe it will help us with get together. Cheers Tony This message has been edited by DivingT on 2012-04-21 12:46:55
