Air Command. A sturdy watch with tremendous build quality. Excellent case and bracelet. 200 meters water resistance. Flyback chronograph. F185 Frédéric Piguet movement with gold rotor. VC and AP used the 1185 FP movement on their sports chronographs

too like the Royal Oak and the Overseas. A much underrated sports chronograph like the Blancpain Leman chronograph that has unfortunately been discontinued too. The Air Command was one out of the three models at launch in the second half of the 90’s. There was the first revival of the Fifty Fathoms. Beside this diver watch was also launched third model a GMT 24 one. The three watches could be had in a red gold case with barenia leather strap or even on a gold bracelet.

First I was lucky to to receive a replacement luenette. First step of the journey was to coat it black with silver numbers. For me this was first better than the original, but after some time not good enough. The bakelite Inlay was made by Stefan Obst fro...  

Superb! I am attracted to the Air Command range...

The only FF I have are from this range...this iteration looks muscular for a sports watch with the raised numerals on the bezel.

Air command on steroids😉

I love that movement. For me it’s more useful in the Leman casing. I’ve not seen one of these in person but figured that bezel would be a bit much for me (and my cuffs!)
