    Possibly but the date numerals are actually big enough to read. What a concept!

    Its was a joke. Blancpain is French for white bread. Nothing wrong with the watch...quite wearable.

    They have the snobbiest slogan of all. Since 1735, there has NEVER been a quartz Blancpain watch.....and there never will be! Tlk about a backhanded slap to the competition. Now we know who the REAL uncompromising purists are! LoL

    Re: What's on your wrist today

    Given that I spent many years living in downtown Gva, luxury watches are very familiar to me. Very interesting place to visit is the Patek museum, which was 7 minutes walk from my old home and the Rolex HQ which was 15 mins walk. Now I like close to the Chopard heiress's mansion.

    The coolest watch expereince for me is wearing the prototype Rolex Daytona 2 for half hour, as I knew the lead designer. It has a glass back, not a metal back.

    Understand the joke. And I love Blancpain, especially their dive watches. I also appreciate date numerals that I can see with my aging eyes. My Rolex "magnifier" doesn't cut it any more.

    The pic certainly gives that perspective. No, on wrist and viewed with less close up it doesn't read like a wall clock. Really interesting watch, and H Moser is a very interesting and cool company. It was the one day I wore the watch. Had purchased from Watchbox, pre owned, and after a few hours a screw running loose in the movement jammed the rotor. It has been returned. I don't think it is a problem characteristic of Moser. (and the service from Watchbox was excellent; they arranged a quick return).
    Fascinating watch. I have been looking for a sportier type watch, and this one, with its hands, and without a bezel, doesn't quite come across as a sporting timepiece. Loved it though. If I were looking to build a collection of multiple watches, I would keep this.
