Blancpain has just introduced a model that is much sportier than any of their past models. It is called the Speed Command Chronograph and this particular version has some nice specs. A 45 mm diameter case made of brushed Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) treated steel that is water resistant to an impressive 300m. The dial is made of carbon fiber and the black chrono has a choice of yellow (pictured above) or orange accents. Personally I like the contrast of the yellow over the orange.
As for the movement, it is a Calibre F185, a 308-part mechanical self-winding chronograph with a 40-hour power reserve. It has hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o'clock. It also has a window-type date display as well as central chronograph seconds hand and 30 minute and 12 hour counters as well. Lastly the chronograph movement has a flyback function.
A few other notable features are a sloping inner dial ring with a tachometric scale and hour, minute hands and the central chronograph seconds with touches of red Superluminova.
Now I covered almost all the features of this watch, but I left one out. My favorite feature, the bidirectional (two-way) "countdown" bezel made of black sapphire. Just take a second look at the picture and tell me that this bezel is not cool.
