Blancpain Air Command Chronograph

Alongside the Fifty Fathoms Barakuda, Blancpain is also reissuing what's considered to be one of their rarest and most valuable models, the Air Command Chronograph. Aesthetically, the new version is slightly updated from the original design and now features a 42.5mm case (from 42mm), a bidirectional bezel with a ceramic insert, domed sapphire crystal, and yellowed luminous markers that replicates the patina on the original watches. The movement is an automatic Frederic Piguet F388B that features a 50 hour power reserve and an 18K propeller-shaped rotor. 

Limited to 500 watches.

18,500 CHF (approx. $18,301),
