Current model and all its variations has been around since something like 2007. Has anyone heard any rumours about a completely new model on the horizon?

All the new bathyscaphe line was released in 2013 (43mm) and 2017 (38mm), all the new 40mm line (mils-spec, ocean commitment, barakuda, etc) are being released since 2018, the 500 Fathoms in 2009, the X Fathoms in 2012, plus uncountable iterations of the 45mm case and several L.E are also post-2007.

In fact, Blancpain didn’t stop producing variations & iterations of the FF. So not sure what you refer to.

The thing with FF is...it fits huge!!!!

I tried 43mm bathyscaphe ceramic and 45mm dark knight version,both overwhelmed my wrist which is already used to Panerai size...

Anything below 42mm should be more wearable...and hopefully they change the lugs size too,no more 23mm as finding the strap is difficult

The Bathyscaphe fits me perfectly. I've only tried it on at Tourneau, but it wears no larger than my new SMP (42 mm). I agree, however, that the 23 mm lug width is unfortunate.

It still has the mediocre frederic piguet inside it, and resale value is mediocre, I would rather spend my money on 1665 double red sea dweller.

Bully for you, but this isnt really relevant to the topic being discussed, is it?

For anyone following, all the recent 40mm releases have a case/model designation starting with 5008.
All the 40mm 3-hand models (incl. the Trilogy FF & Trilogy GMT) have the Blancpain (Frederic Piquet) 1151 movement, also found in the Villeret dress watch. It has 2 mainspring barrels and a power reserve of 100 hours.
All the 43mm (Bathyscaphe) models start with 5000. All the 45mm models start with 5015.
The 43 & 45mm FF watches have the somewhat larger (won't fit in a 40mm case) 1315 movement with 3 MS barrels and 120-hour power reserve.
HTH
