AP boutique visit...

 By: ArmisE : November 21st, 2020-17:39
New boutique location opened up a couple days ago in Boston.  The SA said all the “goodies” sold out within the first hour of openingsmile Still, I had the chance to try on a ROO 44mm.  Wanted to try on a Code 11.59, but I’d just finished at work and needed to get home as it was late.  Overall, nice experience.

44mm ROO

42mm hybrid model - This was actually the SA’s watch, which he graciously let me try on.

That hybrid is extremely nice!

I was about to pull the plug on it but for what I perceive to be legibility issues. The hands might get lost in the subdials. Did you notice that?

I really like that 42mm size, especially for my smaller wrist. I also appreciate the modern touches such as the rectangular pushers. The whole package coming in Ti is just the perfect choice.

how was the design of the boutique? I have not seen any pictures of the layout and decor published anywhere. 

Exactly, those are my same sentiments below.

I was actually worried the titanium would be TOO light, but the watch still had a nice feel and sufficient presence on the wrist.

It’s in a nice location.

The boutique is not as much in the ‘heart’ of the small radius of usual Boston watch and luxury shopping action in terms of foot traffic, but just a few more walking minutes out. This point is actually kind of nice as it adds a bit more to exclusivity air, because a customer whose seeking the boutique will find it easily as opposed to randomly stumbling upon it while window shopping. And inside is cozy, but well laid out with the displays and SA desks in a front section, and a more relaxed/intimate semi-separated (but clearly visible) back of store section with nice couches and table (as if for entertaining or making a vip more comfortable/welcome). Overall very nice, but one could be wanting for more privacy if the store were to theoretically be a bit busier with multiple customers at once...but not expected during these times still.

Yes, you’re right, Jim...

I think it’s the cut-out portions (without lime) of the hour and minute hands that allows them to get ‘lost’/blend in with the subdials as they pass over them. Still, I must admit that it’s combination of size and modern pushers make for an attractive offering.

Yes legibility does not look good!
