    Congrats!!! Quite simply its a home run for AP!!! Just wait until you see it in bright sunlight, the dial is amazing. You will see varying tones of blues to dark grey. Also the fit and finish is superb.

    As you may have noted in some past posts there has been a discussion of brands, boutiques vs. AD, watch pricing, discounts etc. This is a watch that although expensive (even with a modest discount), I see tremendous value in the quality, workmanship, fit, finish etc. I am really happy with this watch and although I wish I could have purchased it for less, I really do think its worth what it costs.

    Congrats again!!! I am sure you will really love this watch. I have barely had another watch on my wrist in the last 2 months.

    my pleasure, this has been great. you are a good dude, and id love to have a drink and talk watches with you some day.

    and i agree very much with the last point. feeling you got a value and a good experience is often of far greater value than straight dollars and cents.

    Rolex 1680 on a "Bond" NATO strap. Both the make of the strap and the polish of the watch case look atypical, but its definitely a Sub.

    Thanks, Dino! It's been more than a week on the wrist, with my others relegated to the safe for now. I lucked out that my AP guy (non AD) was able to get his hands on one, even though from all my recent travels the only 15202 I saw in the metal was at Harrod's in London (with of course no discount). While a regular production model, the new 15202 appears to be produced in very limited quantities (at least for now).

    Perhaps the most satisfying thing for me as it relates to value is that I know this one is a keeper - which of course doesn't always happen with watches we lust after. Last year, I had a terrific deal on a long-time object of desire (Journe 38mm Calendrier in platinum), although after only a few days I got that sinking feeling I'd put it back on the market. I ended up selling it earlier this year, after having worn it perhaps a half dozen times. With price as a guideline, the Journe was a much better deal, although the 15202 for me remains a superior value.

    Panerai made Ferrari branded watches from about 2005-2010.

    This watch never fails to bring a smile to my face. She's a '52 Seamaster with a bumper movement and a Hirsch strap. Sweater is BB and it is probably the best shade of burgundy ever.
