I just think the dimensions of that diver are spot on

The case has an elegance to it with the tapered lugs etc. similar to to current Bathyscaphe which is why I like them so much.  I think BP should have put the Mil Spec LE in the current bathyscaphe case! 

Me too! 41 mm is spot on, here. And yes, the Bathyscaphe case is the closest among the modern FF.

It is all your fault

If I purchase a bathyscaphe today….steel or ceramic? 

Steel. Come on! ;)

It’s done

 By: Cookies : September 9th, 2021-05:44
Will collect it on Monday.=D 

They give a dive log book with piece, which I will use. 

I got a good price for it brand new from the AD. 

Can't wait to see it.

It’s all your influence

I wanna wear it with a military jacket and jeans. And I can’t wait to bring it on leisurely dives. She will see a hard life for sure. Cuz u once said something like “the Bathyscaphe is more alike the original in case shape…” it does resemble the original, excep the bezel is thinner and the markers are different. 

I cannot afford 5k more for the larger FF in steel, so this will be good enough. 

Here’s a pic taken by the AD of the piece.

That's a very cool one. Congrats!

Here it is…speed post was rapid

It feels so sturdy. The bezel has a very tight tolerance. It feels so tool-like yet luxurious in an industrial way.

You wear it very well, mon ami.

These vintage FF pieces looks so awesome on canvas NATO straps 🔥

The TR 900 was made for that, indeed.
