New - The Barakuda

Post by goaliechris » Fri Sep 20, 2019 7:38 am

Just got this in via Blancpain Vegas. Great service and overnight shipping. Could not be happier.

And the watch is pretty bad ass. More thoughts to come but really happy. Even better than I expected.

Congrats, I really love that one! The strap looks great, but I would also recommend the BC vintage rubber for this case. The flared ends give the watch a bit more presence while still being ultra comfortable.

Good idea - that’s a good look! The included strap is a nice tropic style strap that is a stretchy rubber. It’s really comfortable.

Thanks all! As Toxic said, she’s a pretty bitch. I took a risk on this never seeing one beforehand. Glad I did. It’s a stunner - really impressed.

Man, we don't see these every day Chris ! :salute: ..Incredible watch !

Actually is one of those watches where it's a collection in itself, or one of
those watches that you, or we would pick to take to that desert island. :grin:
It honestly just does everything right from the ultra cool crystal, hands,
and markers, to marvel of a movement.

Hope this gets a ton of wrist time. Enjoy Chris ! ..HUGE congrats here !!!

Damn. That is nice.
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

I’ll be in Vegas at Caesar’s for a week in early November. If anyone needs me to drool over some watch for them while I’m there, just let me know.

As an aside, @ Rob, where did you find that BC? I’ve been looking for one of those for my Squale 50 Atmos.
