We chaps with puny wrists eagerly await this offering. I would have liked them to have sapphire bezels ala the FF, but beggars can't be choosers.

The AC03 has caliber F188B…

… which is a derivative from the well known F185. 40h power reserve, 3Hz, 255 parts, slightly over 5mm high, decoration mirrors the F388B in AC02. Here’s the comparison: Cheers Henrik ...  

looks very promising!

hope for a 38-40mm FF soon released soon too!

Why did Blancpain decide to do a smaller case size production run of the Air Command before the Fifty Fathom? I swear some of these watch company do not know their own product, company, and the market.

A few thoughts…

… first, 2023 is the 70th anniversary of the Fifty Fathoms. This may play a significant role regarding a smaller regular FF imho. Second, we (enthusiasts and forum members) are not the market. We are a tiny fraction of the market. Third, the AC03 is posit... 

while everything you said is true...

However, the market has spoken that a 40-42mm case size are in demand. It is not just enthusiasts. Just look at Rolex, AP, Patek, Cartier, and Omega on how much their 40-42mm case size contribute to their success.

I think the original size is better suited for this watch
