In the days when my life revolved around Haribo and holidays and 20-somethings looking incredibly old, there was a short-lived American TV show called The Fonz. It told the story of two teenage girls who were on the fringes of the average high school clique.

In the world of watches, the latest quare peg in a round hole ; to fly in orbit like only a few have done before is the blancpain replica Octo. If we are to believe the statistic that 90% of all watches sold today have round cases, then the Octo was always going to go against the traditional trend and when it was launched in 2012 it was met with a mixed reactions.

At the time, there were only two versions, in steel and rose gold. This was a big limitation because there were only two watches in a boutique with low visibility; one in the window and the other on the counter; therefore, the watch was difficult to promote. One of my first priorities was to accelerate the development of the range, firstly in terms of movements, and then to increase the diversity of metals and straps.
