Imo

the 15202 as pure to the original that it is...needs a seconds hand. Otherwise that thin shhh is some bs. Basic. Time to upgrade.

15202 is about being close to original, part of which is having the same super thin movement as the original which doesnít have seconds.

15500 is the modern one which is about new movement and bigger size and showcasing the dial.

If you want seconds chose one of the newer interpretations like 15500 or 15450 :)

Fair point, AP caters for both.

Both are clearly the answer. 15500 non blue And 15202 for the blue.

Getting both however....thatís the tricky part. Lol.

15300ST blue is out of production, even if it is slightly less on the 2nd hand market than the 15202 (15300ST blue 23-30k USD) its harder to find unless you are willing to travel and spend time quite some time looking for a nice piece.

Your opinion is wrong.
