Pretty cool... much more so than the ubiquitous Sub or Sea Dweller. 

I recently got a modern FF and I love it. Haven't taken it off since I got it. Great watch with a great history. 

Just in case, considering that watch had a very short strap (the Noob one at least) and they're not the easiest to find, considering the lug size, I found this one which is not the cheapest but it seems ok (and has branded Blancpain deployant, brand not shown in those pics): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/High-quality-fiber-strap-for-Blancpai-Fifty-Leather-Strap-23mm-Nylon-Strap-Waterproof-Butterfly-Buckle-Canvas/32998483894.html

That doesn't look bad at all

Thanks man... my wrist is about 7.25" and the strap that came with mine fits perfectly, but good to know there are solid choices out there as well.

Yeah one of these days I'll pull the trigger on one of the modern fifty fathoms but I'm waiting to see if they release a rep of the 40mm milspec76b5d0d32e86763768f51b6d4c41aa36.jpg
