    Cryptic as always. :wink:

    OK, let me try again - which strap did you decide on for this watch?

    Roger posted a thread of Blancpain pics on the main forum, and a couple of the older ff watches were on a Bund-style strap. It's a good look... :)

    Great news! :thumbup:

    Nice dial too.

    I'm finding myself wishing for silver hands rather than white, but we can't have everything now can we?

    Wow, GREAT news.
    The dial is exactly what I was expecting :thumbright:

    4 weeks means just before my birthday (29th of October), hope it will be right on time :wink:

    Eddie:

    Any chance you will be selling extra straps for those of us that are wrist challenged and will have to trim it?

    er as someone lurking and not understanding it all

    can someone explain the point/signifisence of the no radiation bit

    and how does it fit in with the rest of the dial [which looks more classic]..

    There is some historic importance.

    That's the reason for the no rad symbol.

    The original FF has been equipped with it as well. Technically, it's correct: the lume will be Super Luminova...

    Eddie, I 'd like to see pics of the straps you've bought. ;)

    It´s just the classic:


    A (excited): Look mate, I got a new watch!
    B (lifts his eyebrows): Oh. But it doesn't have that.. err.. you know No Radiations on it, eh?
    A (confused): No Radiations? What?

    B (chuckles): Ah, nevermind.

    B leaves. A leaves (totally shattered).

    It is a homage to the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, one variant of which had that 'no radiations' dial. The 'no radiations' refers to the fact that radium was not used for the dial lume, so meeting some military and commercial specs at the time (mid 1950s). Not sure if Tritium lume was specifically excluded too?

    On the Precista version, it is purely decorative of course as it would have superluminova anyway.

    Ehm,

    Tritium is radioactive. Just like Radium.

    So "No radiations" would be incorrect if this stuff was used...

    Eddie, please give my place in the reservation list (#46) to someone else (from the waiting list). I find my interest shifting to aviation watches.

    I know is vulgar but would anyone care to suggest the upper and lower bounds of the price of this one.

    I'm working on something around £300 head only, given the strap problems (i,e, the strap won't add significantly to the cost.)

    I've another purchase in mind and am holding on in case it is significantly more than that.

    I'm guessing something similar: less than the 14 (lack of anti-mag, lower WR), but more than the 17/18. At the moment, I don't think even Eddie knows.

    I think the most important and expensive part will be the movement on this one...

    The sapphire crystal will add to the price as well.

    I don't expect 300 quid to be realistic...
    However, I would be glad with a price of around 300 pounds.... :D

    I've been given a very specific delivery date for this one, which is rather puzzling because they've never been so specific before.

    9th November (this year :wink:).

    I have been figuring a price of 400 pounds... at least that is the number I have been quoting to my wife. I wonder if Fricker will charge for storage of the assorted parts while they farted around for months?

    My reasoning was that O&W charge a premium of £30 for the ETA over the AS and the crystal is thick but not particularly unusual apart from that.

    I'm prepared to pay the price but would have to think about it if it was significantly over £400.

    "We'll see" is not making a guess, it's sitting on the fence. :P

    I reckon it's going to be £550 (with the special mov). That's making a guess. :D
