The blue dial? Yes agree totally, half the bezel and the dial are the same colour, looks a little odd to me.

Not a huge fan of the new new meteorite dial WG pepsi either, yours is a classic piece that will age well.

I am not getting that meteorite dial craze either, it makes the watch more flash

As a concept the meteorite dial is amazing but I don’t think it’s translates well

Agreed.. It was a novelty in the 50's but a bit cliche now. It also adds a premium as it is not the easiest material to work with.

The bezel just not doing it for me at all. No dislike to the brand

Too big for my liking and the bathyscape is too small at 38mm. Just wish they made a 41 or 42mm. Love the watch though. In person they are fantastic. If you have the wrist to carry it off. Go for it.

Yeah the only watch I think it actually works well on is the WG daytona with the black rubber strap and ceramic bezel it looks lovely imo.

As for the Blancpain, from what i've seen of your collection its more of a beater/filler piece and for that reason alone I would avoid, enjoy the special pieces you already have.
