    The One I'll Probably Never Have on My Wrist...

    Thought I would pop in after the invitation from mlcor, on IWL Central. At least I can post this way, I may have one of my own to post later (I'm sure you all know what it is).


    This is the one I most lust after... at least as far as a diver is concerned...BP X Fathoms...:









    In it's natural environment...:




    (Must put out of my mind any thoughts of a Roger Dubuis, "Easy Diver/Just for Friends", with that gorgeous caseback!)
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Okay..., Charging Paddles... CLEAR!! BZZZZT... Another Thread Revived!

    Every time God closes one door... I open a bottle of bourbon.

    I love, love, LOVE how the '90M' borrows the nine from the timekeeping dial. *swoon*

    Looks pretty serious--what's the "x" stand for?

    I know... isn't that cool??!!

    I think the whole watch is totally cool and everything is mechanical! Love that lume!

    Don't know either, at first I thought it was 10 fathoms, but that is only 60 feet. Just BP's designation, I guess. Like "Project X"... I don't know. I wouldn't even care if it was on my wrist. I'd probably make up some story... "Oh, this is the 10th one they ever made", you know.

    For everyone else's info. The "5" Scale at 10-11:00 is for 5 minute decompressions. And then of course, the 2 scales for depth - all mechanical. Then that gorgeous sapphire bezel!

    Never seen that BP model before. Very robust looking for a diver.
