Diver incoming!!!

Finally landed myself a white AP diver, was planning to get the black diver initially but when i got to the AD the color contrast and the sharpness of the white dial with black markers caught my eye . pictures doesn't justify the beauty of the white diver but heres my poor photography skills of the new purchase.

Have you a bigger picture you can upload?
I can’t quite make out the detail when I’m standing on the other side of the room!
What’s the logo on the steering wheel? A Chrysler? A Toyota?
Yeah, definitely gonna need a larger photo.

congratulations!!!! It's a gorgeous watch!!!

I'm having a tough time deciding between this watch and the 116500 in the white dial. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you get it for? I think discounts have varied rom 10 to 20%

i was initially quoted a 15% discount from the AD but i managed to negotiate to 18%. As for AP boutique the saleslady told me that the best discount they can give is only 5% for all watches(pretty sure she's bullshitting).

Allow me to give my 2cents for your dilemma, I would rather have the white diver over the daytona. I may be a little biased (i also own a rolex yacht master 116622), but AP design is really top notch compared to rolex. the fine polishing on the angles , the depth and the clarity of the dial and the oversized offshore designs come very well together.

Personally i like watches that have a date function ,which daytona lacks even though the class and beauty of the chrono is undeniable. the diver itself has a sporty look and for me the white dial adds a touch of elegance and class to it.

However, the daytona fits better if you are one that wears a suit often, the diver is thick(14.1mm) and is difficult to hide under the sleeve. Also , the diver is more prone to scratches compared to the ceramic daytona .

If you already has a rolex timepiece i reckon it is time for you to venture into the world of AP, I'm sure you won't regret.
