I can understand why this is one of your favorite Blancpains. Personally I find the dial a little bit to cluttered for my taste but that Villeret case is so good. Those double lines are typical and on most if not all Villeret variations. You wrote this is...

This piece is the only one that I have left standing. Although I always have my eye out for a Fifty Fathoms 50th anniversary to add to the collection. This piece was from the Le Brassus collection BTW. It is the perpetual calendar split-second flyback chr...

It’s a classic [nt]

Thanks! A see though case back would have made this watch nearly perfect to me......

I still wonder why Blancpain used a solid case back on this piece. Tony

Likewise...I bought one new many years ago.
