Thank you everyone for your encouraging feedback. I do feel I have made the right decision to keep the YG 15450. Tomorrow, I will post pics here - much better quality shots when there is ample natural light.

Ken, I'm glad you made the right choice and to not follow the herd that awes over the 15202 despite me being one of those 15202 fanboys.

I must admit that AP makes very good looking YG watches especially with the blue dial, and I don't normally like YG. In this case I even think the 15450's dial beats that of the 15202 as the petite tapisserie seems to lack the depth or 3D look that the 15450's dial seems to have.

Here we go. Had a busy morning. Finally had a free moment to take pics and post them here.

I do love the YG and blue dial combo. The 37mm size fits me perfectly! No personal bias whatsoever :)

Either one is a great watch for my smaller wrist both would be the right size.

Glad you found the right one. Really love the YG and blue dial.

Thanks Ben! I am really happy I decided to keep this YG '450. Here's a pic of it next to my 39mm Dual Time.

yellow gold/blue dial is my favorite color combination on the royal oak. Great choice!
