NYC Blancpain Watch Boutique

The boutique is fairly small, at about 1000 square feet, but within that space, they probably have the widest selection of Blancpain watches in the country. For Blancpain, I prefer their sporty models, the Fifty Fathoms especially, so I photographed and tried on a few of those. I also had a chance to check out the Limited Edition Lamborghini Super Trofeo. I like the look and dimensions of this watch. It features a very thin case design and is coated in a nice hard black DLC coating. It also features a robust manufacture flyback chronograph movement, visible through its sapphire crystal caseback.
