It strikes me after wearing my new slate grey bathyscaphe that I may have found the perfect match between a watch and an activity. I think most of us think about the dress watch, the casual watch, the globetrotting watch and so on. One could argue the blancpain bathyscaphe can be worn for a casual but nice dinner just as much as it can be worn while at the beach or at work. However, I think that sells this watch short.
What is interesting is that once I got comfortable with the watch, and spent way to much money of the deployant clasp, I have truly found a watch that fits best on vacation.
It was not until I wore it for a week while traveling that I realized how damn comfortable it is. I never worry about scratching it and with the clasp and sailcloth strap it sits perfect while in a hot climate. Better yet, the lack of a bracelet puts the right weight on my wrist. The lume is perfect for reading at night and I canít help but take a quick gander at it in the sun.
The fact is, if I wore any of my other watches, someone would notice a Rolex, or panerai. It would be hard to miss a big pilot. This watch is neither an imposter trying to look like something else nor is it screaming for anyone to look at it.
I think I can sum up my week on the wrist moment as this....
Thank you James Bond for never wearing this watch in a movie and ruining my opportunity to enjoy the purity of a watch at its best with no fuss.
Pics of course.
