I think it is 22mm but I just need confirmation.

Thanks.

It's not what you asked about, but the chrono is 22mm.

Two new arrivals that I saw at my local Torneau the other day that have peaked my interest: New Omega Speedmaster Legend And the new reissue of the Heuer Monaco

When you say "AP thing going on" I suppose that you mean the Royal Oak. Its not surpising since the designer for the original Royal Oak and the Nautilus was one and the same person - Gerald Genta. He had a strong bias towards baton motifs on the hands and markers along with octoganal references to the case design.

I disagree with Rambo - I like the '70s "squound" look. The first 3 PP are more elegant and delicate than the APs I've seen. The round dial models don't have the same level of character IMO.

Yes I did. I associate all AP's with the horrid Royal Oak design. Interesting fact though. Thanks for that.

That might just be the sweetest pic of them all.

The original Royal Oak was a stunning design. Very balanced in its proportions. I think its both classic and iconic, making it instantly recognisable.

Unfortunately the Royal Oak Offshore is more of the abomination that you refer too. It sits too high on the wrist, making the bazel a scratch magnet.

Admittedly, I've never seen an original design. But the current offerings, with the giant exposed screws and huge case, are awful.

This new Richard Mille is pretty crazy with a total weight of less than an ounce. Of course you'll need to shell out $525k for the RM 027 Tourbillon that Rafael Nadal collaborated on.
