NWA! Just arrived. It was the one watch that really grabbed me when I went to Le Brassus to see the

recent new AP introductions. This is the 200 piece limited edition Royal Oak Ultra Thin Perpetual calendar. It’s made in all titanium so extremely lightweight and oh so very thin. A technological marvel. The dial is a really lovely slate blue that is grad...  

Congratulations Ed, that’s a beauty!

They make really good holiday souvenirs in Le Brassus!! All the best, Jon

Major congrats Ed on this marvel

Great edition to your ever great collection

Outstanding new acquisition, Ed, congratulations! Your collection grows ever more impressive!

BTW - your title made me chuckle. I don’t think NWA means what you think it means. You’d need to ice out that bezel and really bring the bling before it gets NWA approval 😀

I thought it meant “New Watch Acquisition.”

I do know the other reference now that you mention it but I did not at all mean that.

I know you didn’t, Ed…

 
 By: NickO : May 21st, 2023-02:06
But I was picturing you wearing a big gold chain and a baseball cap spitting some gangsta rap, and that made me smile. I mean, not that you couldn’t pull that off if you wanted to….. 😀

Maybe a new career in my future?

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:36
I’ll give it a shot!

Wait a minute…I thought you were saying to reduce and slow down the collecting 😂

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : May 20th, 2023-18:58
That’s a stunning and superb watch but why am I not surprised you will get it 😊👍🏻💪🏻 Big congratulations 🍾

You know the sickness, Raymond.

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:37
Thanks for the kind words.

My favorite modern AP...

 
 By: mdg : May 20th, 2023-19:02
...just because it's so cool : )

YOU are pretty damn cool

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:37
Yourself!!!

I'll take that as a compliment from a fellow coolster : )

 
 By: mdg : May 21st, 2023-19:03
...I've been trying to convince my buddy to put in for one of these, but so far he's 'only' managed a 15510 which I'll be seeing tomorrow...

The 15510 is a fabulous watch. The proportions

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-19:12
are really excellent. I’m sure he’ll be very happy. Really, all these Royal Oaks are wonderful. To me, anyway. Such an icon and timeless.

Massive congrats! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 
 By: 1WatchMan : May 20th, 2023-19:16
What a marvel! I wish I never see one in the flesh, or I might be tempted to give my entire collection in trade for it 😅

Thanks 1WatchMan!

Amazing. Perfect AP appreciation of you Ed

 
 By: Gelato Monster : May 20th, 2023-19:55
The complication, the design, the dial,, the detail, the metal, everything is perfect.

The thinness = enjoyment

 
 By: Gelato Monster : May 22nd, 2023-00:47

Remarkably thin👏🏽

 
 By: ArmisT : May 20th, 2023-20:04
I wonder how you feel about the smooth/flat dial in comparison to the usual RO dial texture? Regardless, this piece is a fan favorite, so congratulations on be allocated one.👌🏽

Great question, Armis. I don’t mind the flat dial

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:41
on this at all. It’s the only AP royal oak I have that is flat and not tapisserie. But I think that really a tapisserie dial on this watch would make it look far too busy. Plus the color is amazing.

Agreed. The difference from the others is nice…

 
 By: ArmisT : May 22nd, 2023-00:00
and it would be too busy otherwise. Here, the color gradient accounts for a lot! Excellent addition 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

The entire watch is 6.2 mm. That compares to the

Royal Oak Jumbo at 8.1 also called an “ultra thin.” The amazing (to me anyway) thing is that it’s almost 2mm thinner yet has a perpetual calendar complication. Wow.

Titanium and very thin is nice . . .

 
 By: edtonkin : May 20th, 2023-23:45
but I still love the feel of our twin white gold Sonatas!!!

Oh yes!

 
 By: amanico : May 21st, 2023-07:13

Really great

 
 By: TeutonicCarFan : May 20th, 2023-21:28
I love the combination of perpetual (typically a dress style complication) and sporty with the RO and Ti construction. Nice addition 👌

I appreciate your kind comments.

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:42
Yes, in this case I think it’s versatile.

Fantastic congratulations - absolute drool....

 
 By: pfang56 : May 20th, 2023-21:47
This is such a masterpiece from many angles - enjoy it's thinness to the fullest Super congratulations and please post more photos and experiences when you get a chance!! Peter

Hi and thank you! I’ll be happy to

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:42

Super nice.

I’ve always admired that watch. Congratulations!

LOVE your name. It’s awesome.

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:43
Thanks very much!

Wow that indeed is ultra thin which is a great quality IMO

 
 By: ChristianDK : May 21st, 2023-06:14
And thin titanium must make it even more wearable and pleasing on the wrist. I can certainly understand why it got your attention. I would have done the same given the opportunity. Huge congratulations Eddy. It’s super nice.

My dear friend, you are too kind. Thanks

 
 By: edtonkin : May 21st, 2023-17:43

You’re too kind, Michael

Thank YOU!

The Octo is thinner, BUT...

 
 By: andrea~ : May 21st, 2023-15:50
...it can't hold a candle to this beauty. Congratulations!

I’m sure the Octo is also a marvel.
