This is as close as I’ll ever come to a ceramic AP.

The first thought that came to mind was whether there has ever been a documented case of misallocation 🤔. I seriously did not see this coming because I had respectfully declined the offer of a titanium piece, which is also very cool but too similar to ano...  

Funky cool .future icon imho

You got that right

I like it!

Reminds me a bit of the RJ space invaders.

Beautiful and cute piece

I’ve been thinking about downsizing my collection today, to acquire a grail piece. Interestingly, I contacted my friend, a world renown marine conservationist, and photographer, who was sponsored by Rolex. I asked if he’d trade with me, with his name engr... 

He has quite a few

SD seen on magazine pic of him, and Kermit he wore once when I met him. Apparently; sometimes Rolex barters these watches for magazine advertisements in the past.

Honestly?

Sincere thanks, keks 🙏🏼

I’ll admit, all these various watches with color that we are use to seeing (eg Rolex OP) do indeed lighten the day and bring a little smile 😊

This one is incredibly special...huge congrats!!!

Love the details and the whimsy of this piece, which is elevated with ceramic. Enjoy big time!! Cheers Peter

Congratulations!

A fun timepiece for sure!

Sincere thanks! As whimsical as it is, this is a piece that actually helps the process of taming ‘the OCD dragon’.

 
 By: ArmisE : July 28th, 2022-12:47
As part of the process, thankfully I have been paring down my collection which provided the funds, but there is more to do. Must…stay…focused! 😊

🤣🤣🤣

That makes two of us…chasing our tails 🤣🤣🤣

I feel it's the best AP has done in quite some time modern style-wise.

 
 By: enjoythemusic : July 28th, 2022-11:23
They hired a designer who used AP's aging preset dial form to follow an artistic FUNction. This model is the closest i've cove come to wanting an AP. Still a pass, as am more a modern Bvlgari type of guy and desire 100m WP rating, yet still, nice to see A... 

I’m always curious how they come up with such ideas, especially being the historic horology house that it is with a lot of tradition 🤔

 
 By: ArmisE : July 28th, 2022-13:16
But I am impressed by AP’s boldness and commitment to venture and experiment [within reason] with new ideas. With respect to other ceramic ROOs, for example, they’ve already done it before with the 44mm pieces, so I look forward to their future releases. ... 

All good, and perhaps moreso preferences in style too.

 
 By: enjoythemusic : July 28th, 2022-15:52
Love funky, whimsical timepieces as much as the classic Rolex Submariner (no date of course.😎 ). Really love this Music version, especially the black combo. Hopefully musicians, DJs, etc buy it and wear it as a daily. 👍

Actually, this last point is one I took to heart when this edition was first announced…

 
 By: ArmisE : July 29th, 2022-00:41
thinking that as a matter of fidelity of sorts that these pieces should go to people who truly appreciate music (understanding there are many dimensions of such an appreciation). I’m am/was a formally trained drummer/percussionist with my mentor having be... 

Congrats!

I, for one, think they are a fantastic addition to the Offshore collection. Smiles for you. I am very surprised how quickly they are landing after the release, however.

Thank you. 🙏🏼

Congrats

Nice watch-all I see is Tetris

🤣🤣🤣 I can’t deny that Tetris also went through my mind when I first saw the release! 🤣

 
 By: ArmisE : July 29th, 2022-00:53
The other initial thought was a cool DNA/genome sequencing analysis.🤓 THEN I also learned about RJ watches like Space invaders, Tetris, Pac-man! 😳

Not Polarizing, is AMAZING 👏congratulations 🏆

 
 By: christianch : July 30th, 2022-09:43
I feel the only polarizing part is from people that can't get one so they found a way to say they wouldn't want one!!

I’m glad you like it! 🙏🏼 I do appreciate those differences in taste and opinions, precisely because they show me a different perspective that I may not have considered otherwise.

 
 By: ArmisE : July 30th, 2022-12:42
But at the same time such differences of tastes/opinions have taught me to make sure I appreciate things for their value to me, instead of hype or fads, because there will always be differences of opinion whether I like it or not. That being said, I am ag... 

is a gorgeous watch and the ceramic version is fantastic 👏the money pain will go, the joy of the watch will stay

 
 By: christianch : July 30th, 2022-14:39
and frankly, given that is an AP, we both know that is not likely to drop in value (of course that is not the purpose of buying a watch but..) I found it special without being too loud. Is also very cool, different and I doubt that many will be delivered.... 

Congratulations my Friend!

I was travelling a few days and missed your wonderful new AP! I happen to make my first boutique visit in some years recently and unfortunately could not see this one (no surprise). It is a stunner, enjoy that gorgeous ceramic!

Thank you very much, Michael!

 
 By: ArmisE : August 1st, 2022-13:03
I figured you must be busy or traveling, but was waiting patiently for your impression of this piece. I’d never handled a ceramic case ROO in the past, so while it looks nice in a proper picture, it is very nice when handling in the metal, er, ceramic II ...
