Wow. I've got to say that I'm not a fan of AP RO, but if I saw this one in the flesh I'd definitely look and examine.

I like the result quite a lot better than the previous configuration of black bezel insert and croco strap satisfied.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The strap mitigates but does not negate the intrinsic snooze that is Rolex.

Interesting.  I always thought they were more popular in Asia.  Thanks correcting that misperception.  There are definitely other brands I'd choose over a GS, but that's just me.

Congrats!  Thats a beauty.  I like it far more than the skeletonized version of the 15300 (the 15305).  Enjoy it!

Glad to hear everything worked out.  What was the problem and what was the scare that you mentioned?
