Yet another variation...

...but it's quite nice. I wonder if I'd be disappointed paying $80k and wearing such a light watch?

As someone who tried unsuccessfully to obtain an out-of-market titanium PC...

I am rather pleased with this one. And I prefer the US dial to the ones targeted in Japan and China (I tried for the latter, black and grey dial with the small red accents).

Wow! Looks spectacular Michael! I want one too!

Maybe we can get a combo discount - LOL

Ha ha... we both wish!

Definitely a beauty!!!

I am wondering what will be around the corner... Peter

Yes, what other Oaks are due...

A 39mm we know. But what else is lurking?

Love Titanium

I wonder what these look like in-person. Personally, I am a huge fan of titanium. The coolest part is how it self-heals with oxidation.

Likewise. I was told at the factory some years ago it was the most difficult material to work with.

So much ceramic nowadays. And I love AP's cermet. Tantalum? I wish!

Shall Try! (in vain)

When the red-accented iteration was unveiled, I began hoping for a NA variant in Ti. Here it is! I will try to get one, no-doubt unsuccessfully, but where's the fun in staying on the sidelines. If any live photos surface, please share! HAGWE, Colton

I tried for the China edition. I could not get one.

Ultimately, I like this dial more without the red, and blue and grey is classic AP. I don't care about LE status, and would be thrilled to get one of these. We will see.

Our list is growing!

Look at that finish...

 By: Poky : September 10th, 2021-18:43
Only AP can do such finishing on titanium. Must be a lot more resistant to scratches compared to SS.

Very nice! I want one too!

No message body

Yes! I'd love an AP Community piece!

If only they'd supply us!

I'm crossing my fingers!

 By: patrick_y : September 11th, 2021-20:36
Just let me know and I'll carve a portion of money out of my bank account! Maybe sell a kidney to raise the funds!

I would expect you could corral one, but who knows the total availability.

This one is not designated as a "limited edition", but AP tends to produce a watch like this in very minimal quantities over a period of a few years.

Maybe Michael but from the looks of it, AP, Patek, Rolex, etc...are all favoring BIG spenders and whales more so than loyal collectors with lengthy histories...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : September 18th, 2021-14:16
Of course there are exceptions but from what I have seen around me MORE THAN I would like to admit, the ADs and boutiques have favored business over relationships. Anyone who cannot see that or refuses to see that is in denial. I CAN and HAVE seen this DO... 

I would have guessed you would be in this category

 By: MichaelC : September 18th, 2021-14:39
You have some real AP whales for sure. I stopped collecting Panerai from my local AD back around the time the 127 was launched. I had been a loyal spender on the brand for years, building a rather nice grouping of PAMs. They received 2-3 pieces, and would... 

Trust me, I know how you feel Michael. Like you, I have been collecting for a very long time (29 years) and over that time I have built relationships with multiple ADs and boutiques. A few have been great and treated their loyal clients respectfully...

while others have gone for the easy money. I don't blame or judge them but I have vowed to not contribute or patronize their businesses further. I purchase watches more frequently than I would like to admit BUT compared to the "true" whales, I am small po... 

All agreement here

I have 2 dealers I have worked with over the span of my collecting, which started in 2000. They treat me like gold, even though there have been periods of a few years where I did not purchase from them at all. AP, I have purchased almost exclusively from ...
