Yes, first impression is 44mm rubberclad or should I say ceramicclad...

Thanks for report, amazing models... ceramic will be better with ti plots...

Exactly!!!! I like the RG plots because they play very nicely with the markers and hands in RG on the dial.

Interesting that they are not individually numbering the pieces like they do with other limited edition models. I wonder if this is a new AP policy.

I do like them. Clean variants and a good break from their toylike camo editions. I still prefer my black face ROO44 for the RG and prefer the all black ceramic as well.

I think i'm with you on this - by a small margin I prefer the black face and red hands of the standard watch slightly but not by a huge amount.

I would be happy with either and have been thinking about getting an RG 44mm for a while now. I am drawn by the exclusivity of the Pride of Germany piece. On the assumption that I could get my hands on one (unlikely but lets be hopeful!) do you think it will be a collectible item?

I already have the current version of the Ceramic 44 (26405CE) which has blue accents.

They look great! Why don't AP show off the better releases, never mind not getting them into stores. The grey dial looks so reminiscent of the RGRC, an old love of mine, but the two things stopping me switching my RG for it are I like uniformity of style in the subdials and not one that looks different, and the other is ofc I can't buy anything so German after March 29th.

How do you guys feel about the rotor? I think the original galvanized skeleton works better with the general theme. The chunky gold makes the movement look small inside that case.

I actually like it, never had a gold one despite two RG pieces.

I agree with you. Like the grey galvanized better on the 44 mm.

Only 30 pieces for the RG? Damn, greys will be all over that.

CE looks cool but for the gold plots which look odd.

Agree with the rest. Great dial combo with the case metal finish. Not my cup of tea on case size but great reference regardless..

I love those. Interesting they have open case backs. I believe all the other prides had national symbols engraved on their backs.
