the gold is amazing. Updated RGRC and like the 3120 rotor as well.

rac10000 24 January 2019 03:17 AM

Wow. Those both look great!

masterserg 24 January 2019 03:27 AM

WOW! I think these might be my favorite 44's ever! Amazing!

Nice write up! This reminds me off the Offshore gold with Rubber clad

Yes, first impression is 44mm rubberclad or should I say ceramicclad...

Thanks for report, amazing models... ceramic will be better with ti plots...

Great under the radar release, looks clean.

Interesting that they are not individually numbering the pieces like they do with other limited edition models. I wonder if this is a new AP policy.

Exactly!!!! I like the RG plots because they play very nicely with the markers and hands in RG on the dial.

Yes, its been a while now.

I do like them. Clean variants and a good break from their toylike camo editions. I still prefer my black face ROO44 for the RG and prefer the all black ceramic as well.

They look great! Why don't AP show off the better releases, never mind not getting them into stores. The grey dial looks so reminiscent of the RGRC, an old love of mine, but the two things stopping me switching my RG for it are I like uniformity of style in the subdials and not one that looks different, and the other is ofc I can't buy anything so German after March 29th.

masterserg 24 January 2019 06:58 AM

How do you guys feel about the rotor? I think the original galvanized skeleton works better with the general theme. The chunky gold makes the movement look small inside that case.

I actually like it, never had a gold one despite two RG pieces.

AK797 24 January 2019 07:09 AM

Only 30 pieces for the RG? Damn, greys will be all over that.

CE looks cool but for the gold plots which look odd.

Bushido 24 January 2019 07:22 AM

Wow these are absolutely beautiful pieces!

Thank you for the write up and excellent photos!

travisb 24 January 2019 08:19 AM

Gorgeous! Thanks H!

Tsfc 24 January 2019 08:25 AM

The rose gold one is very sharp!

HK Islandboy 24 January 2019 09:15 AM

I love these

Thank you for posting this!!

zahain 24 January 2019 09:22 AM

Agree with the rest. Great dial combo with the case metal finish. Not my cup of tea on case size but great reference regardless..

yachty 1 24 January 2019 11:09 AM

They both look amazing! wow

Marciano490 24 January 2019 03:13 PM

I love those. Interesting they have open case backs. I believe all the other prides had national symbols engraved on their backs.

JCC296 24 January 2019 03:17 PM

the black ceramic one looks great!

conkers 24 January 2019 05:24 PM

RG ordered!

Uros 24 January 2019 08:34 PM
