A trip down memory lane

I remember when I first became aware of AP about 15 years ago, I just graduated college and started my career, at the time the watches I had been saving for where in the realm of a Rolex sub, a Navitimer, maybe a PAM Logo, but as I got deeper into the hob

Let’s see the taupe 43 Offshore please

I have been trying to get my hands on one since it was announced with no luck, my boutique simply can’t promise a delivery soon. Let’s see those taupe Offshore guys, I need to live vicariously through your pictures ! By the way, if someone has a lead on o

Under water!

But it so far went on a white gold model! Trying to be somewhat practical with my AP purchases (if there is such a thing) by thinking about the wearability, but the minute they come out with a diver in a titanium case, ceramic bezel, I would be all over t

My first Audemars Piguet - reference 26238TI.

I am 1 for 1, if we are keeping stats but I was beyond lucky. All credit to the associate, the manager and the client who declined the offer. I just regret not buying the other piece as well. I do believe it was a 43 mm which is honestly a very nice size

My first Audemars Piguet - reference 26238TI.

Welcome. The watch of the week, what a great start. Your journey to London, and the references you wanted. I am not known with AP references, but i read your references. TI stands for titanium, so that’s why your AP feels not bulky on the wrist. Green, th

My first Audemars Piguet - reference 26238TI.

And lucky you - getting a green offshore as a first piece, in this crazy environment, is something which shows your genuine interest to the AP managers! Make sure to keep in touch with your AP representative - as MichaelC said and I can attest, showing a

My first Audemars Piguet - reference 26238TI.

Acquiring my first Audemars Piguet (sorry in advance for my english): I usually visit London at least two times a year, however I have never deared to contact the boutique. I have been on the outside of the establishment several times but my Scandiavian m

Sometimes you actually really like the “hype”….

Green dials may be en vogue, but this is not the first green dial AP diver, and it’s not my first AP, but it’s a really fun, well executed clunk of a sports watch. My first AP was a white diver. I ended up selling it for an Offshore chrono. All the while,

need opinion: should i do it? RO 15450 vs 15500

First and foremost, I always feel it is better to get the one your heart is committed to. If that is the 15500, then I would wait for it. That said... IMO, the 37mm "looks" better than the 41mm in these 2 particular references. I have compared them side b
