Response to oh, I like that one Al. very nice

 

Yep this is the 38mm version. It has a lot going on, but appears quite simple...twin barrels, 100 hour power reserve, 21,600 vph, solid 18k gold rotor, 100m water resistance. It needs servicing now, but at one time it was my most accurate mechanical watch.

Indeed it has a display back, but of course even without one I like to peek at the movement, so here it is with the back off...

It's quite well finished. Blancpain does a good job with all the details IMO. In addition to the movement being well presented, the case, dial, and hands are top notch.
