Per Patrick’s request, a comparison of the A🦅’s . . .

Nov 19, 2023,21:26 PM

First and foremost, I had to visit the local coffee shop earlier today:

In a previous thread, I had posted a comparison shot comparing the side profiles of the standard A🦅 vs the A🦅 XPS:

Well, I had the opportunity to visit the boutique yesterday during my visit to NYC and decided to try to take some additional shots:

You can definitely appreciate the slimmer profile of the A🦅 XPS. The standard A🦅 comes in at 9.7mm vs 8.2mm for the A🦅 XPS:

Of course, we also have a significant difference in the movements if we look at their engine rooms:

Now I was planning on mentioning the safety pushers on the A🦅 XPS bracelet was a feature lacking on the standard A🦅:

However, look at this wonderful surprise from yesterday’s visit: the standard A🦅’s bracelet now features safety pushers:

Even the sales associate seemed surprised. Chopard must have quietly upgraded the bracelets on the standard A🦅!👌

Another differentiating factor is the bezel. The bezel is slightly thinner on the A🦅 XPS:

Another thing that I caught in this follow photo of the standard A🦅, the bezel can appear as if it’s being pinched at certain angles from the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions:

Speaking of comparisons, here’s one with the Girard Perregaux Laureato with the copper dial:

Finally, I understand that Patrick really like the Luis Vuitton Tambour!😂🤣😂

Hopefully, you find this helpful!🤞 Thanks for looking!🥂

The dial on the AE really stands out. My steel bracelet for today ...

Is that a soup-sized coffee, looks like it from the camera angle 😉 Along side the GP Laureato copper 38, is that AE 40 mm?

Thanks for posting🥂.

The push button clasp is definitely an improvement

Mine has popped open once or twice. I wonder if you can upgrade?

Very funny!

I'm still not a huge fan of the Louis Vuitton Tambour - I've tried it on at Dubai Watch Week - I've seen a whole bunch of LV executives wearing it... Jean Arnault was at Dubai Watch Week and was very happy about it - but I still just am not a big fan of i... 

😁 I couldn’t resist!

Well, we both of tried these on and it wasn’t enough to make us pull out the plastic and ‘pull the trigger!’ Those production figures are quite interesting. It’s like they’re testing the waters before fully committing to this update. I’m sure this will as... 

Happy Thanksgiving Mach!

Exactly! The perception of limited availability will make these watches more coveted. And your interest should be piqued! The Tambour may not be a home run for me today, but that doesn't mean that LV can't make another watch that will be a home run for a ...
