What a beautiful piece, the quintessential RO!  I've tried it at the same time with 15400 and for some strange reason, even though the 15202 has the smaller case, its stiffer bracelet insisted on splaying out hanging over the sides of my wrist resulting in a not so balanced look.  Had to go with its bigger cousin - the 15400's case is full 2mm larger but the softer, more pliable bracelet hugged my wrist just right. 

 

I envy the guys with 6"+ wrists who can pull off the 15202 and other watches I can't get away with wearing...

Hi Igor,

 

Thanks!!!  I always liked the ROs, but it took me a while to decide on which one was right for me.  I tried on the dual time, the chronograph, the day date (Referred to as the "Owl" by some), the 15300, the 15400, and the prior generation 15202.  However, upon seeing and trying the 2012 revised 15202, I knew it was the right one for me.  Luckily, there are many versions of the RO, to fit different wrists and tastes.  The 15400 is a great watch, enjoy it.  Cheers!

AP sure did a great job on reinventing the Jumbo - it's just amazing how a model that started the whole luxury sports thing is just as youthful and contemporary after more than 40 years.  It will always remain a tribute to Gerald Genta's visionary genius, who else could have come up with such revolutionary new concept literally in one night!?

After searching high and low, I just can't find a watch that I love more than the 15400!something about that retro face that's just so special

Joining the recent AP Royal Oak love fest, with something a bit different, here's my 26300st:


What drew me to this chrono versus the other RO models were the beautiful symmetrically placed subdials and the colored indicators. The additional comparative heft felt very reassuring. Of course, it's all about the little details and I love the fact that the centers of all the hands align perpendicularly.

A little relief from the Oakfest is most welcome! That's a lovely watch.

Something a little older and a little more unusual for a New Year's Eve event last night:

 

 

 


My 1933 J W Benson silver half-hunter. A gift to me from my parents on my 21st birthday, many, many years ago.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on a new Daytona.

Thoughts on: White dial or Black dial???

Either is fabulous, personally I like white more so that's the one I chose.
