I like this, never seen it before.

However, the one thing that gives me pause is that it doesn't look like an AP once the bezel is cut away like that. It wasn't immediately obvious to me that this was in fact an AP. What do you think? Is there enough AP RO in this for you?

Actually its very very identifiable as an offshore

Bit it does wear very huge 45mm even more prominent than the 44mm offshore tourbs I definitely camt pull it off even if i had the resources (which i dont) But it is indeed a spectacular piece

Handsome piece by itself but it leaves so much else to be desired in a watch. With a hefty price tag if you still get that empty feeling, it wudnt help cure any of itches. Perhaps it is....

.....more Industrial than elegant. The skeletons like 15305 luk more endearing despite having a hollow luk. The RG version stilll luks warmer than this 'fabrication' in white metal.

I do agree

But you really need to see it in person You might change your mind

Anyone remember Walter Mondale’s 1984 catchphrase

“Where’s the beef?” Every time I see this reference I think “Where’s the bezel?” NickO

At first yes the lack of the full bezel felt or seemed odd but you know what

In the context of this particular model design it actually is more better than if the bezel was full One main reason and aspect is the the bridges carrying the barrels and wheels come descending from the bezel , from the screws. The bezel screws is what’s... 

You could go the other way and put it in the 48mm Offshore case

 
 By: NickO : January 10th, 2019-09:16
Now you’d have plenty of room for a nice thick bezel without disturbing the bridge work. I know, I know, I pretty much live alone on Planet Big Watch, LOL NickO

Maybe so, but I honestly do think it is actually

Better in that design You have to handle it to fully get it ...  

I handled one in the NYC Boutique

 
 By: NickO : January 10th, 2019-12:04
And it just didn't sing to me. Maybe it is one of those designs that just takes a little time to get used to. I can think of several watches I did not like when they originally came out but later came to appreciate. All the best, NickO

Then your points are based on handling

And I can’t argue with that I guess it’s the kind you either look be or hate And that’s what’s beautiful about this madness that is watch collecting

No need for one in this one trust me
