    New watch arrived...Not a Doxa... Pics

    It's Eddie Platt's Blancpain Fifty fathoms hommage. The PRS 50. Limited to only 50. I have No. 33. I'm allergic to rubber straps so I nipped out and bought a white stitched leather job. I took a couple of pics for comparison. Once again Eddie produces a classic. I must say that I'm partial to acrylic bezels and this one is a beauty.

    May I ask what the PRS went for?
    Great looking homage to the original.

    With shipping to the USA around 670 Dollars. Bloody good price for a 50 edition limited watch with a NOS AS2063 movement. That's the same one that was uses in the Fifty Fathoms in the 1970s.

    $670 is a very good price. I like that it has a vintage engine under the hood. Makes it even that much more special

    I had heard that he is going to make a non-limited edition. Is that true?

    Yep if her gets enough interest, he will. ETA movement but other than that it will be the same.
