Why choose a Bathyscaphe?

Own one, or thinking about acquiring a Blancpain Bathyscaphe?

Which one, send images?

As much as you can’t miss with a Sub, I find the FF Bathyscaphe 5100B very attractive, mainly for its size (38mm) which is convenient for my small wrist and makes the watch more versatile overall imo. The sapphire caseback and the brushed steel are both a...
