brushed titanium really changes things.
+1 This one has my attention. Now if they could just find their way to get rid of the 'Blancpain' engraving on the side of the case it would be perfect.
I like the engraving. Image. I don’t even notice it on the wrist.
It wouldn't be a showstopper for me, but I'd prefer the watch without it.

The engraving doesn't bother me...presumably BP had done this early on with their watches (?) and when the brand was brought back by Biver, they reinstated it again as a nod to their watchmaking past. perhaps.

They didn’t have the ti in anything other than blue today.

The blue is phenomenal.

I’ve always wanted to try the SS FF, but the timing is never, ever right on one for me to be able to pull the trigger.
Current
Alpina Extreme Diver 300 | Benarus Ti47 | Breitling Avenger Seawolf | Eterna KonTiki Super 1973 | Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic | Hamilton Pan Europ | IWC Aquatimer 2000 | Korsbek Oceaneer | Linde Werdelin The One 2.6 | Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre | Omega Seamaster 300 Titanium | Omega Seamaster 2531.80 | Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow | Panerai 005 | Rolex Deepsea | Steinhart Nav-B 6497 | Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military | Stowa Seatime | Zenith El Primero Stratos

Incoming


Considering
PAM 422 | AP Royal Oak 15400 Silver | Rolex Explorer II 42mm Polar | Omega PO 8500 XL


Sometimes it's easier just to watch

As tempting as it sounds, the blue SS Flinque dial has been discontinued this year so it's a keeper for me thats only going to go up in value 👍

Nice display back too. I always thought the FF needs a display back with its nice in-house movement. I think this one will get to -50% relatively quickly, assuming Swatch continues doing what it has been doing with Blancpain.
