Straight off the doorstep and that little blob of top cream hits me coco pops - heaven.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

^^^ I love almost everything about that Blancpain. The only thing that troubles me is the radial lines coming from the centre of the dial. I think they confuse the eyes (at a glance) and are an unnecessary addition. I'm sure I could live with it though. :D
