Finallly, an opportunity to see the 2019 Novelties!
As soon as I saw Henrik's post on May 17th, I immediately called the NYC Boutique and placed my name on the list for the Barakuda. However, the more photos I saw of the Air Command, the more I started to question my decision. Three weeks later, after an agonizing internal debate, I decided to call the Boutique and request they transfer my deposit to the Air Command - fortunately!
I'm on vacation this week in NYC. So, the first priority for the week was to visit the Boutique. It's never easy making these decision when you have not seen these beauties in the flesh. Thankfully, they still had the prototypes. Without a doubt, I made the right decision. The Air Command is a phenomenal piece. I simply could not put it down!
I know the rotor gives some people heartburn. But, I really love this feature. As an added bonus, you get a better view of the movement. Overall, this is truly outstanding Tribute piece!
Now, don't get me wrong. I still love the Barakuda! Once again, this is another truly outstanding Tribute piece. But, I simply could not put the Air Command down. Even when I tried the Barakuda on, it felt like my eyes were being seized by the Air Command. I just kept glazing at it.
Blancpain did an amazing job this year! I'm looking forward to my first Blancpain - hopefully, not my last!
Happy 4th of July!
