I stumbled into this non Royal Oak AP and It looks very attractive, I wonder what do you guys think about it , in terms of wear comfort being 43mm ?

Yes, No , Maybe ??? Can this be a daily watch ? All opinions welcome ... Thank you , Zsolt. ...

It is the granddaddy of base cal. 2121. The only next stepup being a sonnerie or minute repeater. I don’t know why is it 43mm cuz there was...

a smaller version available iirc. It is ultra slim, has curved lugs and a guilloche dial not visible here; has a Brushed finished case and polished bezel. It is quite dressy if your idea of dialy wear leans there.

I’m familiar with the 2121 movement I had it in my Saltarello and I loved it !

My only concern was that for a dress watch is quite large , I imagine dressing it down with a strap change so it can be worn more casual . I saw the 39mm version as well but I didn’t like the engraved bezel , never the less, that would be the ideal size .... 

Do you live in New York City? That helps.

The sunset and sunrise complications are localized, but the rest should be fine regardless. As for the fit of the 43mm case, I found it wearable on a 16cm wrist, but anything smaller might be impractical. Best, Tim

Legibility is better in person than the photo, but the contrast remains challenging due to the monotone dial-hand tandem.

This is the kind of watch that you need to view, focus, and then discern; a quick glance will not do. Of course, if you plan to read the perpetual calendar precisely, a still-higher level of effort is required. I'd compare the contrast of this AP to the p... 

The EOT does not feel so large and the dial is very easy to read.

The slim profile makes it feel smaller than it sounds. I am a RO Jumbo fan, especially for the size and the EOT does not seem all that large and it feels much smaller than a ROO. See photos below for comparison. The only pain for me is when we have daylig...  

Easily can be worn daily.

I have one with different complication that I wore daily many times. I just reversed the clasp to make it more comfy.
