Wow, that's a much better looking dial than I expected compared to the renderings.

Time to pump up my wrist size to be able to wear the watch!

The dial is incredible. Way more dynamic with the lighting hitting more angles

Very impressed. The smaller case and more overall design touches are impressive. I like how the new case slopes down to hug the wrist. This is more then an update. It almost feels like a completely new watch. The ďconceptĒ design element is being brought into production in a futuristic way. This watch feels forward thinking. I was a negative Nancy on the offshores up until now. AP must have had some idea up their sleeve for years. Looks like they threw down their cards in wonderful way. Iím feeling the itch to see one in person after that video

Great vid, with lots of interesting info, e.g., reg. 15202 successor.

I liked another shot from Horoloupe's IG, which shows the texture of the new dial well (and of course the brushed CE bezel):

I agree, a much more well thought out functional design.

I just wish they had live shots/vids of the rose gold as I am expecting one...

Second that, the photos on their website don't do any justice. I thought the tourbillion chrono looks abit too comical on the AP website, but my oh my, looking mad good in the video.

Everything about it looks awesome to me except that absolute blob of an applied logo.

One the face of it I really like everything about the new 43 ROO except the dial - so far personally I prefer the old style layout, but maybe the new one will grow on me when seen live.

I really like the new dial with the CNC cut design instead of a stamped dial, I think the vertical lines through the squares mean that itíll catch the light in an amazing way. If the curved design of the case/bezel is anything similar to the Black Panther then Iím going to want one for sure.

Horoloupe's photography was better, but interesting to see them out there. I asked for a Ti/grey CE one, looking forward to some real-life pictures while the boutique is a no-go, travel-wise.

looks like the production pieces would be stamped rather than CNC cut design dial with more texture.

Can you confirm that? I rewatched that IG video and itís pretty hard to see either way

Iíd be really disappointed if that were the case since it was one of many new selling points for the 43mm

As mentioned I tried this new piece on Wednesday;



Really liked it and Taupe /Green (ish) colourways work really well.......interesting and different but in a good way. The dial is just fantastic and the eopn case back is a joy to look at too.

Having had 3 ROO's already it wouldn't be for me right now (have 2-3 RO's I am after) but will consider it later on I think.
