Apparently mine is one of the very firsts delivered if not the first one



I was told at some boutiques, there is a waiting list - I am not sure if the demand is high because this is already a popular model or it is just because it is a novelty.

I’ve seen it. The pictures don’t really do it justice. It’s beautiful and in the sunlight the bezel almost looks like metal.

Thanks for your photos. I have one piece reserved for my pickup next month. I am now quite confident it will be to my liking. At least the comfort of wearing is there.

Best pic so far archer, nice shine on the bezel...

And if the bezel is more metal shiny as stated (like the Trulli ceremet), and less matted like on some pics, this Ghost is truly winner for ROO line...

If someone could show me how to post pictures, I think I have some that capture it. The bezel changes tremendously depending upon the
Light.

Best and easiest way is via the tapatalk app ! It has a quick learning curve and makes it very very easy.

Ok saw it in person and itís lovely. I would just get rid of the 2 tone strap and go for a dark grey one instead. Waiting to see how much it will be on the grey market..

No one better to take pics of this at its best and promote it, AP should be backhanding you.

Great pics archer, looking for other incomings...

Also saw pics pics of the final production model of Vampire with black ceramic bezel and, instead of SIHH and demo models, the bezel is also the vertical lines brushed one

The more pictures I see of this in the wild, I think I'm going to have to add one here in the near future.

42 ROO Ti 'Ghost'

I went to check out the Ghost at the Taipei 101 boutique today. I was really excited to see it but came away not really feeling it. The bezel looked almost plastic in certain lighting and the strap color was a bit too bright for my taste. I still think itís a cool watch, but just not for me. I actually came away liking the black/red ceramic bezel one a bit more. The sales woman who helped me said others had similar reactions after seeing it, which is why the Ghost is available for purchase, but thereís a wait for the black/red one.

The new plastic protection certainly makes it more plastic looking... it can be removed to see it in full glory but some sales persons have trouble putting the protection back so they don't do it :)

The SS black ceramic have also the vertical lines finish on the bezel, right?

Looks stunning on the day light



The strap looks blueish at the photos, it is
light grey but very close to some tons of blue.

Interesting point on the plastic protection. I should have looked closer, but I didnít think there was any plastic protection on the bezel.

Yes, the black ceramic has vertical lines on the finish.
