Congrats on the big day. Wishing you many years of happiness.

I really like that GP. It's almost unsettling with its simple perfection.

Thanks, dudes! It's a rainy Saturday in Norway, and I figured it deserved some non-phone-camera photos after having it for nearly a year.

Took some shots of a few other favourite chronos while I was at it...

It's a very difficult watch to capture in a photo due to the domed sapphire and angles on the hands/indices, but this should give you some idea of its range. The blued finish on the central chronograph and subdial hands can vary from an electric hue to near-black, while the rose gold hands and Arabics seem to have a life of their own. You can also see a bit of dial's parchment texture. It's an absolute treat on the wrist.

The typographical snob in me has absolutely nothing to complain about with this one. Design literacy is on the decline when it comes to watches, but that's a whole 'nother story...

Fantastic. Thanks for sharing. I'm sad that that line has been discontinued. It has so much character and class.

Yes thanks; well spotted! I tried on both the 2500 and 8500, and felt that the 8500 was too thick for my wrist and felt a little more top heavy than I really liked.

I had hoped to find the time for a long unboxing with a heap of high quality pics, but I never actually manage to get the pictures taken. So: here is my AP ROC in rose gold satisfied.gif

Today was dark and rainy, but this golden sun on my wrist cheered me up considerably. I had a new rubber strap from AP installed today, the same found on the City of Sails edition. The brown leather strap was ok, but a shorter rubber strap made it much more comfortable. The butterlly clasp is totally centered now, makes all the difference.

Sorry for the dreary cellphone pic, I promise to return with better photography biggrin.gif

(But even in the rain, I'm sure you can all see the insane levels of frivolous awesomeness a rose gold Royal Oak chrono constitutes teacha.gif)
