Photos and review of my new RO Double Balance Wheel Openworked
By: David_S : April 28th, 2019-06:26
Friends, As promised, see below some better pics of the 15407ST I received a few days ago after a multi-year wait, as well as an initial review. Design: This is my first RO, so I'll talk a bit about the overall model. The design is very angular and sharp,...

I'm still extremely happy with it but at this level, we should be allowed to nitpick and nag like old wives.

Yes, it’s very tough to get, maybe also because I’m a new AP client. Thanks for the comment on the collection. I may still need a true dress watch (maybe a VC two hands in platinum). And a Gshock...
A stunning work of art.

I love this tension between the industrial, somewhat raw design and the excuisite finishing! Not a huge fan of what AP does in general, but with this piece they did everything just right. Thanks David for sharing this beauty with us. Regards, Daniel

”hard to get” or boutique only client but you have them....amazing feat. Care to share how you achieved this? It is only logical if your AD carrying all 3 brands 😂 Congratulations to a stunning new watch and collection, David.
Thanks a lot Raymond

I used an old trick that I hesitate to share: patience! TS at an AD, waited a year. I ordered immediately after it was announced at SIHH. 5270 at the Salons in Geneva and RO at the AP boutique. For the RO, I put my name on the list about 3 or 4 years ago....
David, thanks for a wonderful photo set and your insight.

I'll never forget when I purchased my first AP, a silver dial rubberclad in 2001. To have that watch on my wrist, I was mesmerized by the crafstmanship. The Royal Oak Openworks demonstrates a real mastery of craftsmanship. As Dad says, you can pay more bu...
Great review and pics

Totally agree movement looks spectacular from the front but a little lost from the back - overall a great piece of mechanical art for the wrist.
