Time Lord level 1 - badge request
« on: April 16, 2020, 08:04:10 PM »
I’m sad to say that I’ve only recently found this part of the forum :facepalm:, and a very enjoyable read it has been! My edc watch since 2015 has been this Blancpain Léman triple date with moon phase - this one is 40mm in diameter with under lug correctors which keep the case clean. When they came out in 2004-5, I really wanted one, but simply couldn’t afford one - it’s screwdown crown with 100m water resist really appealed, and quite unusual in a watch with this many functions. And I’d always lusted after a Blancpain moon phase after I saw one in 1983 in Watches of Switzerland in London - needless to say, no way I could afford one as a student! Any how, roll onto 2015 and I come into a bit of extra money, and after 8 months hunting on Chrono 24, I found the watch I was after second hand, fresh from a factory service - I bought it. It normally comes on a leather strap with deployant buckle (I still have it), but I destroy them with a vengeance due to sweating a lot, so I went to the Blancpain boutique in London and ordered the metal bracelet - it was very expensive! However, I love it, and the boutique does swap the bracelet for the strap whenever I want for no charge, which is nice - last time I was there in early January they gave me champagne!! So, here it is on wrist, and with my other edc, my InvesTigator mod.
