Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Barakuda. Re Edition or Only Watch?

Jul 05, 2019,15:08 PM

Here is one watch which I prefer in its limited (re)edition rather than the Only Watch issue. 

The Only Watch, with its pale blue accents: 

This year re edition: 

What about you?

The Only Watch should have been more exclusive.

Done in platinum or tantalum. A regular 40mm edition of light blue in brushed titanium would have been killer. Would like to see a polished SS with green lume. With that said, give me the patina and red accents. John

SLERE for me.

And off topic comment: why can't the word AUTOMATIC be retired from duty on watch dials? And that goes for AUTOMATIQUE too. 😎 M4

Standard Re gets my vote [nt]

The blue accents are reflecting on this year’s Only Watch official colors...

... other entries also pick up that theme. Two years ago the OW color was yellow, hence Blancpain entered a Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MilSpec in that color code. For me I also prefer the Barakuda that’s part of the catalogue. Cheers Henrik

Hmmm, only watch I think

I do like both but I think I'd go for the only watch. If I'm alone in liking this Only Watch, maybe I can bid on it and get it for a decent price

SLERE for me too

Getting a bit tired of faux patina

I Prefer the blue indices. Much cooler than now too common faux patina.

But the price of this Blancpain is a bit too high. I hope they will make it regular production to keep the price down.

With a few little changes

I would go for the only watch. Without Automatique, as requested here from other side, The Diamond on the bakelite should be a little bit bigger and as a 12-3-6-9 version. I could be satisfied so easily.

Finally a modern touch – looks way better than the regular reissue.

I still don't like the printed/painted indices on this watch.

I like the pale blue.

So Only watch for me. Best, Thomas

“Only” for me [nt] changed my mind

No message body

Hope not too late for the context

Another vote for the standard 👍
