Anyone familiar with this new 40mm reference?

I’ve been offered this by the BP boutique. Apparently it’s only for the Asian market but the boutique is getting 5 pieces. I can’t find any info on it though!! ...  

No idea!

Never seen it. Definitely looks more feminine to me. Mother of pearl dial is definitely more feminine IMO. Got curious of what this reference is though as I couldn’t find info on it

a 40mm FF would definitely be welcomed by many enthusiasts... i know there was a limited release some years ago but these are not so easy to find...

I have stopped believing. We would have one by now if they really wanted to.

Let’s just hope it will have the right movement

And not the legacy of the current 40mm tributes which is vastly inferior to that of the 5015 series.

Movement issues

I have been thinking about the Mil Spec Hodinkee... What are the issues with the movements? Thx!

No issues I would call out

 By: agyzace : April 3rd, 2022-19:17
Simply a couple of things: movement designed for dressed watches (ultra-thin, self-proclaimed) and as such less sturdy for sports watches, designed by FPiguet (at the time was a supplier to BP, later acquired) and not in-house and purpose built like the m... 

I don’t like it.

The font or the dial treatment,

The numerals and font

are too much for me. So not my cup of tea. Cheers Thomas

This is awful on so many levels...

I had heard about the release of this, and obtained an image from Sam at the Blancpain boutique in NYC. Totally saddened when I saw the image. The numbering is terrible. I'll leave the blue mother of pearl to someone else, but not sure what the goal was h...
