15300 was the main RO when I first got into the brand, the 202 then was not very popular before the 40th anniversary update, to the extent the 300 was known as the AP Jumbo for a time, so that watch is fine by me.

Flat seems like something you wouldn’t want, as in a flaw. I have seen all the RO versions numerous times, the dial on the 15300 is one of its great attractions.

It is reflective just not overly so and is not metallic.

Today taking a few rays

I am going back and forth on a SS sports watch and a ROO or ROC are at the top of my list (if I can convince myself that it won't scratch any faster as a daily wear then the overseas or a daytona, and the service won't be over $2K).

I have a 18.5cm wrist and here are some wrist shots. Is the 41MM too large? 38MM too small? 39 perfect if I went with time only versus chrono?

Wrist shape seems to have so much to do with things.







Thanks!

Offshore is my grail but this is just too beautiful. I think it's the nicest blue dial on any watch

If the 15400 wore a little too big, then the 15300 would be perfect. I had a black 15400 and switched to a white 15300 and it's perfect. My favorite watch other than my vintage 1675 pepsi. I even enjoyed more than my blue 5711.

The 15300 definitely doesn't wear like a typical 39mm given the bracelet. As far as dials, in order I prefer blue, white, then black.

the key rule in Royal Oak is "less is more" . 39>36

Had to take a second look at that pumpkin in the background. At quick glance, I thought you were overlooking a balcony and there was a very large, round man in an orange shirt photobombing your RO.
