Hi All, The year of the Dragon 🐉 has been surprisingly good in terms of my RO journey !

Thanks to Vincent at the AP boutique getting me an allocation of this beauty !  As usual, I love double-wristing !  With such a momentous milestone, champagne (made for AP) was popped to celebrate !

Given my small wrist, the jumbo fits me better overall.  Naturally the thinless of 16202 is very comfortable and the blue dial is mesmerizing !  The AP logo above 6 is so interesting in that the intersection of A and P luminicient and is perfectly aligned with the hour marker at 6.  Hence, to me this intersection acts as a second hour marker for 6.  The dial color is a camaleon and changes depending on the lighting. 

The 15510 has its own merits of having great wrist presence with its size and thickness.  The black dial is more powerful and 15510 accompanies to serious business meetings !  Given its large size, I wear carefully to avoid scratches and dents.

With 16202 and 15510, these siblings are so similar and yet so different.  They will be competing for wristime.  What do you guys think of the RO siblings??



The champagne 🍾 was tasty 😋

IMO, the 16202st is the best modern Jumbo AP has made.

I like the quickset date, and the dial shade is indeed different than a 15202. I know PuristS talk about case construction, and the previous movement. If I need those things, I would dig back to older models. But for modern production, 16202st for me. Con... 

Thanks MichaelC ! I am over

And how I covet this one! Hoping this will be my nr 4 AP, as the jumbo is perfection. I do wish the brand explored some 40mm size for the 15 line. Anyway, I hope you keep on getting lucky with AP!🍀
