I am not a "car guy" or into racing, but I have always felt this Grand Prix to be the best F1 themed watch.

I prefer others like RB2 and JPM, but I would imagine for an F1 fan, this watch is tops.

I do not own it, but have tried it on over the years.

One for me to admire.

What are people’s thoughts on this watch with the ceramic bezel.

 By: Speed freak : November 7th, 2019-11:53
I’ve seen this watch at the AP museum with a ceramic bezel and I thought it looked really good, especially as the original carbon bezel tends to delaminate easily.

So, what is the story of the bezel?

 By: respo : November 8th, 2019-05:55
I have only heard vaguely about the bezel not holding up and I have seen many photos where this seems to be the case, but I am never really sure due to the appearance of the carbon fiber. I have been very interested n this model for a while now, and i wou... 

Good reply, Respo. I saw the same piece in the museum, years ago, with a full ceramic bezel.

I was told owners have the option to upgrade, or change, to a ceramic top piece if they own this watch. Not sure what the cost is. It did look great, and naturally eliminates wearing the top carbon piece. Aesthetically, I like both, but preferred the all ... 

Thanks, Michael! [nt]

I’ve got wear a F1 chronograph watch. I’m a car guy and love racing a lot. But i am more a 24 hour of Le Mans lover. Endurance always my favorite, and i like NASCAR. About famous watches. Rolex Daytona Paul Newman. About a nice Ferrari watch. Panerai. Me.... 

Appreciate your reply, Weems.

Definitely many great auto themed watches over the years. I myself favor the AP RBII. But I think AP created a super authentic watch with the Grand Prix.

Good watch without to much overkill. I like more silent models like an Royal Oak with a cream/white dial and not more than 2 complications, and an open caseback. An there is an AP dress watch who was in a compare on watchfinder

Too big...

for my wrist but it is a beauty Cheers

The protrusion on the left makes it even bigger.

 By: MichaelC : November 8th, 2019-07:05
It sits OK for me, but surely not a small watch. At least the weight is very low, adding to overall comfort.

That one haunts me...

If AP could refine Carbon Forge to be much more wear resistant I would totally jump on this one. Incredible on the wrist. Cheers Peter
