I went to visit AP House London a few weeks ago and to be honest, I prefer the one in Madrid.

The main reason for this is that due to the "watch crime epidemic" going on in London, AP House London will continue to be appointment only, which makes going there more of a formality. Having said this, it is of course nothing AP can do about this, except hope that things calm down to the point they can have walk-ins without having to worry about security.

Besides that, amazing experience overall, very welcoming staff, superb design etc. What I found very cool is that they actually had a 15202ST & 15500ST in all colours to showcase (not for sale).

The old AP house or Service Centre was appointment only as well so not related to the more recent rise in watch crimes, I think it is more to do with exclusivity than anything else, it is not to be open to any passing John, one must have a certain level of interest.
