    Hublot has the current contract for the "high end" watches.
    Apparently Movado will launch a mass market Ferrari line soon.

    thanks for the info.

    hublot isnt bad, though the thing i liked about the GPs, was that i dont view ferarris as a chunky car, and i recall the GPs for ferrrari being more on the slimmer side. panerais and hublots, are chunky. just a small pointless notion, but i think the watch image should be consistent with the cars.

    as to the mass market line, im sure it will be meh. :(

    Hayward, that's a nice combo. Never figured that would look that nice.

    It's a really wonderful watch, huh? Classically styled but with a quirky movement. I love my other watches but this one just seems a bit more special.

    Yep. Funny how the movement in your hand feels like something is broken, but not when it is on your wrist.
    I sent mine back to Switzerland at one point for a complete service and overhaul a few years ago. It came back looking factory fresh but for some of the age on the dial. On the other hand, the service probably cost more than the value of the watch. But I really like it and wanted to be able ot wear it daily.

    Hey Medtech,

    Congrats again on your AP15202. It's simply great classic sport watch. You are quite right about production being very limited even though it's not a limited edition. During the last few years, on some of the AP related watch forums I have seen several people inquire as to whether the 15202 is still in production because they never see them at ADs and several ADs have said that they rarely have gotten in the last few years. My own AD got 1 in rose gold a few months before mine, but said he hadn't had a new steel Jumbo in his store in 4 or 5 years. So I think this will not be a watch you will see on tons of other people. Also with its list price being something like $6,500 more than a 15300 and about $5,500 more than a 15400, more potential RO buyers will go for those models (although 15300 are tougher for some to find with production having ended), as they are a bit more affordable, and some people may want the sweep second hand that come with the 15300/15400. I can say on a recent trip to Las Vegas, the AP 15202 & steel Rolex Daytonas were the only watches that were unavailable at dealers in Vegas. Other so called hard to get watches were easy to find there...I saw tons of new Pateks including chronographs, perpetual calendars, the time only steel Nautilus (white & blue dial), Nautilus annual calendar, steel Nautilus 5711/A1 moon phase & power reserve, and the Nautilus chronograph. I also saw both colors of the new Rolex Explorer 2 at every Rolex AD.
    I like that the 15202 is a low production watch that nearly mirrors the original. Glad to hear you are enjoying yours.

    Sorry to hear the Journe didn't work out for you. I've heard from several people they are temperamental, and the like old Jags, you need 2 Journes (one to wear plus a spare while its twin is being serviced).

    Congrats again.
    Best regards,
    Dino

    How hard is it to get an original RO in decent condition? And would you get that instead if you could - the lack of the applied extra AP logo and the smaller text throughout make it nicer in my opinion?

    Thanks, for your kind words. Every now and then I travel to your area. If I get down there in the next few months I'll let you know. I'd love to see your shop and grab a drinks & chat watches. Hope to do that soon.
    Best regards,
    Dino
