Blancpain have come up with a titanium version of the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe. Looks nice.

I just can't help but feel the Bathyscaphe to be a bridesmaid to the original models, though there are many fine examples, especially that one.
Think it, be it.

I prefer the Bathyscaphe to the full fat Fifty Fathoms because it's a simpler, more utilitarian design. Though I don't think that's a widely held opinion.

The Bathyscaphe's hands remind me of the Sinn U1's.

Just a personal quirk of mine, but I'm always put off when the hands are different widths like that.

Want a green Nautilus? Loupe This are currently auctioning one, and the price has (at the time of writing) hit $332,000, with five days to go.

https://loupethis.com/auctions/patek-philippe-green-nautilus-5711-014

The Nautilus is objectively a nice watch, though it's never really done it for me, but I remain to be convinced that it's worth nearly $300K over list. Several people, who are considerably richer than me, disagree.

There are tens of thousands of people in the world for whom that price tag has the same meaning as a venti latte has for us. Good for them. Paying $300k over list is how they spread their money around.

I do wonder, along with many others, what are the watches that will prove later to have been great purchases now.

I also wonder what the residual value will be on that Patek. They’ll probably do a tax write off as a depreciating asset…. Yeah, it’s a phenomenal watch, but it’s just nonsense at that price. It’ll probably go to some talentless tosspot, who through the sheer degradation of society has achieved fame. I’m sure it will look lovely with their Versace tracksuit

Upgraded my Tudor 79230N to a 116610LN recently, loving every minute of it, literally! Especially when paired with the Buffalo UHF.

@orion213 A stunner there. I have the non date 124060.  Great watches, very versatile. 

I had always been a bit adverse to Rolex due to the some of the negative image but having had my hands on a few of them I realised they were just well made robust pieces.  I now have four of them.

There is no 'I' in team ............... however there are five in 'individual brilliance'.
