It is the FF that Blancpain made for the Bundeswehr (specifically Kampfschwimmer) in the mid-Seventies (and later was replaced by the mentioned IWC/PD). As far as I know, the design is unique to this very model - and I adore it.

Kind Regards

I am particularly fond of the Grand Seiko line of watches, planning to pick one up soon: http://www.seiyajapan.com/category/1_grand_seiko/

Great watches Iroh, I'm sure you won't go wrong with any GS - which one are you thinking of?. Infact I have 2 myself so if you want some close ups or info just give me a PM smile.gif

Kind Regards

Kind of off topic, but I just picked up my Omega Seamaster 120 (first nice watch bought in 01) from service. After weeks of wearing my 43 mm diver, the 37 mm all around watch is going to take some adjustment. Watch looks like new and feels very light. It's just odd how the preference for size of watches changed in 10 years. I guess it is the size of the classic datejust, so maybe that is a more classic size.

While the Bell and Ross isn't really my cup of tea either and I rather like Grand Seikos, it seems bad form to come in, give some harsh criticism then answer a question about your watches with one that you don't even own. If you were named for an animated character, I'm not sure it's something your namesake would do. wink.gif
