My quest has been finished.

A couple of years ago I tried to source a 15202. I was 'on the list' (fooly me) and patiently waited. After I understood that it was not going to happen and I didn't want to pay the premium, I looked for alternatives. But both the 15400 and the new 15500 seemed large to me. So I was after the 15300, which is very close to the original. Today I managed to get one and I am deeply in love. The design and the quality of the whole watch is indeed sublime. A keeper for sure. Aris

Very happy for you, Aris. Enjoy. [nt]

I didn‘t even know about the 15300! I looked it up and found this article from 2009- quote:

 By: jlc.thomsen : October 10th, 2019-06:16
„I am probably stepping on toes of purists here, and I am a bit amazed myself as well, that this watch gives me this impression. Given the price of the 15300 – market price approx.6500 euro versus approx 8500 euro for a 15202 – I don’t know if I would care enough for the caliber 2121 of the 15202 to pay almost 2000 euro premium for it. I think I prefer a case and bracelet that are more convenient and wearable than having the cult version (15202) with a movement that is more sought after.“


Why did you post the prices? I'm crying... [nt]

Don't let the cat out of the bag, but (to me) the 15300 is the one to get.

Let others chase after the others.

You did good.

Wear her in the best of health!!


I think I made the right choice. [nt]

I'm amazed at the current 15300 prices. That's a tough pill to swallow knowing where they come from and were only 10 months ago.

You are right but they're truly unique pieces, very very close to the original. [nt]

Big congrats mate !

the 15300 is a true gem !
I went thru exactly the same path as you. 
Couldn’t get the 15202 ... waited and waited.
15400 too big ...
Eventually I managed to find a blue dial 15300 in mint condition just few months back and I got it. Yes it’s a big premium over their original prices even for the blue dial 15300 now but still a bargain over the blue dial 15202 ! smile

Most importantly is to enjoy our 15300s.

Big congrats once again and enjoy in the best of health.
Mine says hi here smile


Yours looks sublime. [nt]
