Blancpain Fifty Fathoms 70th Anniversary Act 3 Live Photos 🤿

 By: christianch : September 26th, 2023-16:08
Hello All! Happy to share some live photos of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms 70th Anniversary Act 3 ! I found the size to be perfect also not too thick vs the regular 45mm version that I own: Here is the comparison with my current FF (45mm) which is also thi...  

Looks beautiful! And so does your regular production version.

Personally, I would prefer an entirely black strap but that is purely my own preference. Is this at the boutique at Paradeplatz?

Nice design but quite bright, shiny, and GOLD

Some of that is the lighting, no doubt. But I'd guess it will look better with some time and patina.

As I said some days ago I like it. At that price I expected

a higher % of gold. I haven’t problems with those long and straight lugs but probably they’ll be a dealbreaker for many.

Like the size

Would prefer Ti5. Also seems a little splendy for bonze-gold 🤷‍♂️. Nice looking watch though

Thank you for the pictures!

Interestingly enough I asked the NY boutique if they have a display model that I could see and it turned out they didn't. I guess the assumption is that they would pre sell anyway so why bother. I think the strap is terrible - trying too hard to match wit...  

Visually? Nice, so is a gold Panerai... other then that its an expensive moonSwatchpain

9KT? they are selling a 32K$ watch as a gold, not saying its not really gold... none of the other Swiss manufactures has gone so cheap.... No wonder BP is on Ecmo for quite some time...

Ecmo is the pearl of the month!

Here you go…

… just got the confirmation that the finish is done by hand, as is the rotor. Both reminiscent of the vintage timepiece. The photo, taken during the event, is not doing it justice. Cheers Henrik ...  

Wonderful, many thanks.

The FF3 even though has a smaller case its lugs are very long, the watch on the nato strap sits higher on your wrist and the lugs seem to protrude over on either sides of your wrist. The lugs also are parallel to the watch so they seem too high in relatio... 

very valid points ! thanks for your reply ! I didn't even notice it

 By: christianch : September 27th, 2023-10:22
but indeed the nato sits higher - it looked smaller to me may be I didn't adjust it well. For sure in terms of weight the regular edition rose gold is heavier - top heavy so not the most comfortable.

I didn’t know it was top heavy

Yes that might change things


 By: Gwai : September 30th, 2023-06:09
While I like this stunner of a watch very much, it wants a large-ish and flat wrist. If I were a happy owner, I'd also replace that nato with a black, two-piece rubber strap - or even leather as these guys won't see that much water, probably. Cheers Marc

Very nice, thanks for the pictures.
