A special vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, Milspec AND Rotomatic Incabloc.

Most of the Fifty Fathoms Milspec are only Milspec, but there are some special ones, such as the Double Swiss, OR... The Rotomatic Incabloc. 

Here are some photos I could take of one, belonging to a friend of mine. 

An ultra rare version, as I could see only two in the real life, and a couple more on photos. 

Yes, my friends, building a collection of vintage Fifty Fathoms is an impossible mission. You have to avoid the bad ones, and when you find a correct one, you just realize that there are several highly tempting versions. 



Wonderful watch!

I keep hoping for Blancpain to release a standard FF in 40mm!🤞

Me too, my friend, me too!

I agree

I’d get a 40mm in a heartbeat. The current models are just too large for me.

With the Bathyscaphe case and without date...

A great find from your Friend - such character ! A life time of learning would still leave me a novice on these wonders...:)

It is a real mine field, but with years passing, and more than one thousand photos of vintage FF, you start to know one or two things about them. :)

Just beautiful

These vintage BP’s have such a unique character.  They are without peer.

There are few watches which can compete with them, in terms of charm, soul, character and sometimes, History!

I put it on my " another watch, I will not get it, dream watches list" 😁

Yes I know that feeling too well. These vintage FF are not accessible anymore.
