Yeah, thinking about the strap only. The bracelet is too much, and not as comfortable on my wrist.

On the other hand, if it was for something like this:

Or am I Ari Gold? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
 

 

I have never felt much of a pull for ROCs but that picture you posted was lovely and would certainly convince me to take a second look.

It scared the chips right off the plate ... 

 

I actually like rose gold for the ROC, but prefer the hour markers and sub dials on this one.

Big honkin' gold sports watches aren't my thing at all. This one is definitely more my speed. Eliminate the date and it would be excruciatingly perfect.

The AP ROC is nice and I remember watching that episode and noticing the watch!  I have not tried on a gold sport watch but think it may catch my eye at some point in life.  I enjoy when other TWATers post them as YG tends to be in your face loud and I may not enjoy that once on my wrist.

To paraphrase PG (remember him??) - Exackery. On a related note, the new 15202 (different colour date window to example above) is IMO superb, and I may have started saving already for it... smile.gif

Honestly do not think it is a good idea to trade 3 watches, each superb in their own right, for (IMO) the watch equivalent of baconaise, or a hot pink Ferrari.

Think about it - IMO as a "design icon" it fails (a PG version of a luxury steel watch??), as a sports watch it fails (croc strap), and as a chronograph, well, for $50k MSRP there are plenty of other options out there. If you are after this sort of "look" the VC Overseas chrono comes to mind.

Love it. This one is currently on the top of my wish list.
