    minds can change...50 fathoms love!

    when i first read about it on ABTW & Hodinkee
    http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/blancpa...fathoms-review
    http://www.ablogtowatch.com/baselwor...yscaphe-watch/

    I thought to myself...'hmm i should check it out...and it would look great on a bracelet'
    (yes u guys know how much I love my bracelets)
    anyways, had a chance to try it on a while back and wasn't too enthused about it.

    Somehow this lil' beauty kept popping up on my radar..I reached out to my personal watch enabler dealer
    and he was crazily able to get his hands on a used piece a week later!

    the dial is so stark..so pretty...with a nice little sunburst going on.

    the bezel is so slim yet so attention grabbing being ceramic

    the crown is solid..screws in solidly..and gritty smooth?
    normally the lack of a crown guard would bother me..but this is very nicely balanced

    caseback is sublime, as is the awesome buckle.
    I fitted on a shaved down curved end 24mm rubber strap

    wrist shot of course

    Awesome watch! I'm so seriously into divers right now!

    Beautiful. I almost jumped on one of these when they first came out, but decided it was just a little bit too big for me.

    Very, very beautiful. I always thought the FF kept moving away from the diver it once was, but this one is stunning!
    And that movement, wow.
