My quest has been finished.

Oct 09, 2019,11:51 AM

A couple of years ago I tried to source a 15202. I was 'on the list' (fooly me) and patiently waited. After I understood that it was not going to happen and I didn't want to pay the premium, I looked for alternatives. But both the 15400 and the new 15500 seemed large to me. So I was after the 15300, which is very close to the original. Today I managed to get one and I am deeply in love. The design and the quality of the whole watch is indeed sublime. A keeper for sure.

I didn‘t even know about the 15300! I looked it up and found this article from 2009- quote:

„I am probably stepping on toes of purists here, and I am a bit amazed myself as well, that this watch gives me this impression. Given the price of the 15300 – market price euro versus approx 8500 euro for a 15202 – I don’t know if I would care enough fo... 

Yes just madness isn’t it? [nt]

I had a white face I had to sell years ago. I now regret having done so...

Don't let the cat out of the bag, but (to me) the 15300 is the one to get. Let others chase after the others. You did good. Wear her in the best of health!! -John

I'm amazed at the current 15300 prices. That's a tough pill to swallow knowing where they come from and were only 10 months ago.

Very nice Royal Oak

the 15300 is a true gem ! I went thru exactly the same path as you. Couldn’t get the 15202 ... waited and waited. 15400 too big ... Eventually I managed to find a blue dial 15300 in mint condition just few months back and I got it. Yes it’s a big premium ...  

Thank you ! :) [nt]

I was fortunate enough to get my 15300 years ago, back when they could be found at a discount. Once they were replaced by the 15400 I realized how important the original proportions are to the overall look of the watch. Congratulations! I know you will en...
