The 8 emblematic screws almost floating, truly impressive and... daring. Very very modern style (look at those bridges!) but I’m not sure the ROO PuristS will love it 🤔

AP takes a huge risk with this one but I love this initiative. Never forget that the timepieces which make history were the most divisive ones when they were unveiled. Best wishes Alkiro

Destined to be controversial piece, likely forever.

Going beyond comfort is a worthwhile exercise for a brand, but it only guarantees audacity, not success. The more I examine this, the more the individual components impress. But then I look at the whole, and it seems less coherent. Ultimately, I'm not sur...

Modern skeletonized tech design

I'm confused with no dial and no tapisserie, but i like it. it doesn't seem to be a tourbillon, or is it?

Great - except for the pusher! They destroy the whole casing line. I never liked these over exaggerated pushers...

It kind of reminds me of some design characteristics of a few high end independent watchmakers.

It's a turbo

Thus, food for millionaires only😦

Listed as 50 in each metal, it is super cutting edge and conceptual... perfect at first glance. Very structural, the whole movement will appear to float inside the case I imagine. This is a day of too much open dials. But AP does it different... they don'... 

Will be forgotten quickly

Remember, only 50 made. Also skelton chronograph tourbillion like the 26347, which has a retail price of almost $240,000) --- so while this is an anniversary piece, there are only 100 made total in both metals and MSRP will likely be at least a quarter mi...
