OK, no inhouse Chrono for 2018. So I guess this one will stick around for quite some time.

this answers your question on why you don't see too many of the RG ROC on here. Its competing with that. Its the only ROC i would buy.

That is nice. Particularly as its unlikely I will be spending any of my hard earned on 2018 releases, I am tempted to add a bracelet to my RG ROC with its current rubber strap.

I can definitely see why. In pictures, compared to the RG, the blue dial looks like it pairs so much better with steel. However, I haven't put the RG/blue off yet; I need to see it in person before judging the OR blue.

This is one of the best looking ROC around.

Yes, blue and silver sub-dials goes very well with the SS case. AP has a tradition of being very proud of their SS finishing.

Thank you! It's actually the watch. I only use my camera phone for all my watch shots.


While we are still at this, this is another ROC shot I took today that I post to IG.

You do need to see the blue dialed RG ROC in real life to appreciate it, as the blue works very well indeed with the rose gold colour.

Well now when I travel with my passport outside of the US I get some sort of sympathy..either that or they register me equally a dumbass by association.

Either way, I don't think Americans have a very good rep across the globe

I have this pic, which doesn't do it justice. The dial really 'pops' in sunlight. I need to dig it out of the safe and do more.

Since you asked, I'm a traitor today and wearing this RG Seamaster Omega, which I do like very much. AP Summer Edition on blue strap for SIHH trip tomorrow and Thursday.

Hey traitor, ever heard of a bracelet?

I have seen pictures of the SE on a blue strap and it goes so well together. I'll be looking forward to pictures of those as well should you decide to share them

Here you go. Nicer on blue than white I think. My favourite AP thus far, definitely.

I agree that it looks far better on blue than white as well. It is like the AP version of an upgraded YM2
