Three vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Milspec.

 By: amanico : February 14th, 2021-02:03
This was 13 years ago, in Paris. A quick shot taken in a bar, during an informal GTG. 

Three different Milspec. My " ex " on the left, and two others belonging to friends. 

Three beauties. The one on the right has a special detail, the " rotomatic incabloc " mention just above the moisture indicator. 

Bewitching. All of them.

The spirit and magic of these FFs are really strong. I wish the modern FFs had the same effect sad

I agree!

Three spectacular watches...

When I see photos like these, I realize how well the Hodinkee LE was thought out. Obviously not the same, but to me, it successfully gives me a similar vibe. Still would not mind adding any of those 3 to my humble collection! Great post! 

Well, it would have been a killer, the Kokiki LE if only they went for the Bathyscaphe case!

Agreed! Maybe BP is planning this in the future? We can only hope...

I do hope so, because for the moment, at least for me, it is a missed opportunity for a great watch. For the moment it is a cool watch, it could b a GREAT watch.

Beautiful! If I ever get into vintage watches, the FF would be where I would want to start my vintage journey

Not the easiest vintage journey, the vintage FF, I must say...

Hah, right, it means it will take a long long time before it costs me any $ 😉

In terms of funds, and authenticity, too... Finding a correct one is tougher than funding it.

Its interesting to see two moisture indicators that are still blue. I have only see two in the past. Brian
