AP boutique visit...

Nov 21, 2020,17:39 PM
 

New boutique location opened up a couple days ago in Boston.  The SA said all the “goodies” sold out within the first hour of openingsmile Still, I had the chance to try on a ROO 44mm.  Wanted to try on a Code 11.59, but I’d just finished at work and needed to get home as it was late.  Overall, nice experience.






44mm ROO




42mm hybrid model - This was actually the SA’s watch, which he graciously let me try on.

I was about to pull the plug on it but for what I perceive to be legibility issues. The hands might get lost in the subdials. Did you notice that?

I really like that 42mm size, especially for my smaller wrist. I also appreciate the modern touches such as the rectangular pushers. The whole package coming in Ti is just the perfect choice.

how was the design of the boutique? I have not seen any pictures of the layout and decor published anywhere.

Exactly, those are my same sentiments below.

I was actually worried the titanium would be TOO light, but the watch still had a nice feel and sufficient presence on the wrist.

It’s in a nice location.

The boutique is not as much in the ‘heart’ of the small radius of usual Boston watch and luxury shopping action in terms of foot traffic, but just a few more walking minutes out. This point is actually kind of nice as it adds a bit more to exclusivity air... 

Yes, you’re right, Jim...

I think it’s the cut-out portions (without lime) of the hour and minute hands that allows them to get ‘lost’/blend in with the subdials as they pass over them. Still, I must admit that it’s combination of size and modern pushers make for an attractive off... 

Nice!

You should go for the blue titanium. Instant classic and a awesome value.

Appreciate the report.
