I've always wished my wrists were large enough for Speake-Marin watches. The enamel dial with blued hands and finely finished rotor - just superb.
Blancpain: Yes, unfortunately so imo.
The movement would fit better in a smaller case, Breguet used to produce a dress watch with the same movement in 35mm (5907) which was a great model. But, this Blancpain is still a very nice watch.
Blancpain: Love the aesthetic
One of the nicest recent Blancpain models since their 6-masterpieces collection. I only wish the watch were smaller, maybe at 36-38mm instead of 40.
Independents: Love their philosophy
The amount of hand work on this watch probably exceeds any other watch in the same price range - a fully black polished case just boggles the mind. Difficult to imagine what it'll look like in real life.
