Years ago, I came so close to purchasing this La Boutique Paris ROC

One of the most beautifully finished ROC out there, just gorgeous BUT so fragile, the finishing, just one scratch anywhere and the watch is ruined, I wore it 5 or 6 times but then I gave up on it. I need a watch that is tough and can take can take a beati

Years ago, I came so close to purchasing this La Boutique Paris ROC

I could not get full comfort about the seller from Italy. We go to the point of meeting face to face in NY, and then the seller went quiet. Hard to know how close I was, but sometimes the best deals don't happen.

ROC 26300

Dear friends Very happy with my new beauty. For me the 38mm is perfect in proportions and size. The „Panda Dial“ igives harmony and legibility. My first Royal Oak…stunningly beautiful to me! Best Tempus

TGIF, what is everyone wearing ?

But it was the 41mm version and in reality a little big for me. Although I wore it for maybe 4-5 years no problem. Today is a casual Journe day.

Incoming: AP Royal Oak Chronograph

After a period of waiting, I got a call from the AP boutique saying my order for this watch can be filled. 41mm steel, with blue dial in the Grande Tapisserie pattern. Very enjoyable to wear. For this report, I’ve photographed the watch resting on a piece

Today arrived this beauty. Some of the first remarks: The dial are more balanced The thickness are growing very subtle The data need to accommodate with the watch because if you have old ROC model you are tempted to look near the center of the dial Watch

1st AP? Here is mine, from 2001

Bought in the end of 2013, sold in 2018 I think. I was leaning away from the Chrono but my wife swung the decision for it. In hindsight if I’d bought the 15202 I would likely still own it at it was a better size for me. This is despite my waiting for the

Saw this in a "fine jewelry" store that sells new watches and used/traded-in watches. Not a Rolex AD...

. . . because of the premiums they are getting. The movements on these watches and the build quality, while good, are not nearly at the level of other watches in the price range these are going for. For example, why would I pay double retail for an AP Roy

NWA! Who said you need to spend heaps of money to enjoy AP?

Just got this one in after a month of waiting (thanks FedEx and US Customs). This is a 1960s Audemars Piguet ref 5369ST with a really beautiful silken/cross-hatched dial. Imagine, a steel AP from the 60s for under 5k! For those who know AP calibers, the m
