among many other models or theirs that i adore. in a way, its kind of a shame imo that the popularity of the RO overshadows pretty much everything else they make. it also is probably do to the fact that most of their models are priced well beyond what most folks can afford.
I agree its a shame as they have had some interesting pieces in the past (although a few dogs too, look up AP Bamboo watch). However, the public speaks with their purchases and the Offshore Royal Oaks and Royal Oaks are what people mainly want and purchase from them. Even when they tried offering new models such as the Edward Piguet (rectangular model: time only, chronograph, perpetual calendar, tourbillon) or the John Schaeffer models, they never really captured the public's attention. I think they hang on to the Jules Audemars and Millenary models to have some type of current round dress and non-round dress watch to offer AP collectors. In addition, for many years RO's such as the 15300 and now the 15400 were the most accessible models to the public even though they were still significantly more expensive than say and "Entry level" Rolex, IWC, or Breitling. So I think ROOs and ROs will continue to overshadow their siblings.
