A rare and very interesting vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Rotomatic Incabloc.

Nov 11, 2023,20:08 PM

According to the owner, and the former owner, this one was used by the French Marine Nationale. I knew they existed, but this is the first one I see in person. 

You will notice the triangle at twelve, 

And the early case number 6xx. 

When watches have both character and history, they are simply irresistible.

bezel error?

interesting that the ‘30’ is inverted…

A bit more complicated...

Triangle, but not inverted 30. And here, we are in the 8xx range. I've seen both. ...
