Looks much better, darker shade of grey is much sexier.

I am 90% convinced this is my next AP. But still need to try out myself. I am generally not so fond of grey unless it's very metallic. I actually never own a 42mm ROO before so this is a first.

Actually my first AP love was the RGRC which has a grey dial so I am partial to grey, but it would have to be darker on an SS model to provide some contrast and depth for me, and this does look more like that outdoors. Grey pushers look cool too.

I'm famous! I was wearing both in that picture. Both are beautiful. The only thing I can say about the ghost is that the photos don't do it justice.

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

I’ve got mine from an AD in Paris, not from a boutique though.

In the US, boutiques get all new models first and they get the best pieces typically.

In Asia too.

Interestingly, when I visited the boutique at St. Honore street, there were no stainless RO/ROC/ROO. All sold out. Too many tourists looking for the hot popular models.

Mixed feelings usually means a pass. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I didn’t like the watch one bit. And the super light grey strap is not helping either - looks pretty cheap.

I saw it in a boutique two days ago and passed immediately.

The two tone strap on both 42mm are really horrible IMO. At least there are some decent options to swap out for.

Plus

Very light and comfy
grey ceramic is more unique
Love the TT strap

Minus

can look “wash out” under certain lighting, ie lack pop factor
grey ceramic bezel while nice, is no cermet... sigh
Fitting existing diver straps need a new buckle


As for discount, from boutique, no discount of course but my local AD can get a 10% discount. It seems at least over in Far East, availability isnt an issue yet.

Sounds like the pros outweigh the cons for you, esp if you like the current strap.
