One of the few Offshores I like

I usually don’t go for the Offshores, but this works. Going to see my AD in the coming week, will ask about this.

Same for me.

Cool looking, but

I’d prefer it on a rubber / canvas strap or bracelet.

+1 on canvas.

Very interesting given how close it is to the taupe version.

I like it, and had it been available at same time as taupe then it may be a challenging choice. But it would be a bit hard to justify both. People will also point out the lack of a ceramic bezel. Again, interesting release.

I remember dreaming of a ROO.

Literally just waiting for a time when I could actually afford one. And when I got there my taste had already changed and I never got one (or any AP). I always feel like it’s the one that got away. So for me, it’s a watch that I still admire in a nostalgi... 

LOL

Fashion first

To me, this is a fashion watch in a sartorial way. Imagine it paired with a great pair of brown shoes, cordovan, Russia calf or Horween chromexcel with great patina. No doubt for me here that bold high Horology meets dressy coolness. I like the steel beze... 

It works fine for me.

But I still think the smoked taupe dial is the best 43mm so far.

I am into it. Its a vibe

I would love to see one in person. But I like a good brown on a watch. I like the dial and strap combo here.
