The Blancpain FF is indeed an impressive piece; it is also very retro. Now, if bought years ago and displayed it's a profession of style, however not something I would buy today to show I'm retro fashion aware.
The Glashütte has wonderful classical watches; both to look at, and as movements go.
The only thing that bothers me with the majority of dress watches is the lack of structured dials; they all look so flat. Louis Moinet shows how it can be done. The Rolex Cellini date is also a step forward as far as dials go.
A friend of ours, Frills, summed it up nicely saying something to the effect of, "It looks like it comes with a free UPS delivery man uniform."
However, if it puts a smile on your face, then go for it.
After you've gunned it down with such grace, it can be hardly imagined it's going to put a smile on anyone's face.
