wristshot: Blancpain Leman 2100 Ultra Thin

Wristshot, 9th June: Once more we look across my usual Girard-Perregaux watches into a Blancpain Leman 2100 from 1998. 38mm steel case with stepped bezel and black glossy dial. Most of these watches came with a white dial, but the black dial really makes the indexes and Roman numerals stand out.

Cherry on the cake is the nicely aged Tritium lume at the hour dots. As this was the time manufacturers shifted from Tritium to Luminova, quite typically you can see that the hands already have Luminova while the dial uses still Tritium.
