Got the chance to buy one of these second hand for 50% of retail.
I have not seen it in person yet but happen across Blancpain boutique and saw other Blancpain chrongraphs (Flyback Speed Command) in black and to tell you the truth they looked really tacky to me. Not the built quality of course but the Rambo look made me thinking. I think even for a diver it could have been more subtle and elegant.
Perhaps this particular model in blue looks more appealing as oppose to black ones I saw. All the complications it features are on one hand nice to have but on the other it makes a dial overcrouded and overwhelming.
I will see it on monday but wanted to hear your opinions about this piece.
One thing that concerns me is the basel and its scratch resistance. Any thoughts ?
