The AP Jumbo is stunning!

Try on the 15402 at my AD it just a little big on my wrist.

 I know the feeling!  For years it was my grail watch.  Thankfully, it has exceeded all of my expectations!

Hey Kaplan, it is a different font than what was used on the 1972 Jumbo.  I took a picture of the current seven last month, but when I realized it was not the same I wasn't sure you would be interested in seeing it.  It looks good, but not as stylized as the font of the original.  If they had use the original font with the blue date wheel, it probably would have been too much beauty and excitment for you...so they used some restraint.cheers.gif  Not my best photo of the watch but you can see the 7 in the date window clearly.

Thanks Tchoy,

 

I tried on the 15400 before choosing the 15202 Jumbo.  The 15400 is very nice, and the thicker bracelet is good if someone is really tough on their watches.  However, I really preferred the proportions and dial of the 15202 (along with the dark blue date wheel).  Overall, the Jumbo is one of the best purchases I've ever made!

Well, 1 casual, 1 dress watch and 1 sport; 3's the magic # smile.gif  You must be collecting to disagree?

I am going to on try the Jumbo when I get a chance. It's very hard to get hold of one at the moment. I have to agreed with you the 15202 is much more balance than the 15402. You have done very well indeed.

Sorry was meant for Apropos! In my opinion, the NOMOS Tagnate Sport is the perfect example, off the intoxicated head! It's not a sport watch, low w/resistance, pull n push crown! And I believe its about 38mm!   (luminous hands+ a little bigger than your traditional dress watch) CLASS IS DISMISSEDbiggrin.gif

I've used one of the English Selvyt polishing cloths from Frei & Borel for about 15 yrs now. The perfect polishing cloth. I throw it in the wash about once a year/as needed.

 

This is the 10"x10", part # FB 313.

The Selvyt is certainly not necessary. I'm sure any 100% cotton cloth or maybe even the microfiber cloths designed for auto detailing would do the trick. Now that I think about it, Allen Edmonds sells a flannel cotton polishing cloth that would work well.

Thanks for the kind words.  I happened to luck out and visit the AP boutique in NYC when they had 1 in stock to try.   Since that day, the only other new Jumbo I've seen in person is my own.  Even on a recent trip to Las Vegas, I saw lots of supposedly tough to find watches from Patek and other brands...but the one watch I did not see at any of the dealers was a new RO Jumbo.
