There are multiple places a Blancpain aficionado can find interesting information and the opportunity to take a closer look. Here are some I recommend exploring further:
A must read is the site of Peter Speake-Marin, aka The Naked Watchmaker. PSM frequently deconstructs modern and vintage Blancpain timepieces, allowing for a close look at the excellence that normally is hidden to the owner:
Deconstruction Fifty Fathoms Ref 5015
Deconstruction Villeret Squelete Ref 6633
Deconstruction Villeret 8 Jours Quantieme Complet Ref 6639a
Deconstruction Villeret Equation Marchante Quantieme Perpetuel Ref 6638
Deconstruction X-Fathoms Ref 5018
Deconstruction Vintage Fifty Fathoms
Some wordwide watch fora offer a designated section for Blancpain, obviously with a slightly different bias due to the primary geographic audience and group of members.
For english speaking audiences I recommend two fora, PuristSPro and timezone.

Timezone is a sophisticated forum since more than two decades, the focus is on the current timepieces:
For German speaking audiences I recommend the forum Watchlounge which provides a variety of topics and a small subsection for Blancpain:
This is only a short representation of interesting places to explore when it comes to Blancpain. Another solid and comprehensive source of information is the Blancpain website and of course the Lettres du Brassus:
