Beautiful start of 2022

My boutique sales person really gave me a big surprise and I'm so thankful for it! What a positive start to 2022!

The black dial 15500st was actually my choice, but during late 2021 the sales lady showed me the silver dial on display and told me if I would like to change my dial option as I already have a black dial 43roo. I thought it made sense, and although it didn't look as nice as the black dial to me, I decided to change my wishlist to the silver dial instead since I have never had a light coloured dial watch in my collection.

But as soon as I stepped out of the harsh lighted boutique and once natural light hits this silver dial, I'll be damned! Such elegance! It even "glows" sitting in my watchbox at night. Wow! Wow! Wow!

Superb, well done.

I think the Silver (not White) dial is vastly underrated for the 15500. I am waiting for a Blue but I'd happily take the Silver (or Grey) tomorrow if/when offered.

Congrats. Great piece. I am looking into silver dial 15500st as well.

How does it wear compared to the Code?

Still waiting for the same since June 2020. Hopefully this is a promising sign.

Yes it is really underrated. But good for us who loves the silver dial. If I insisted on the other colour dials, I doubt I'll get a 15500st so soon. The AP salesperson kept correcting me when I said white haha. But it is really snow white in certain angle!

In terms of comfort, the code is much more comfortable on the synthetic strap. In terms of size, they wear rather similiar. Hope that helps.

Congratulations! The one thing I really like about the silver dial 15500 is that it has a really industrial look to it at certain angles. The dial of the watch blends in with the bracelet and looks as though they are made of the same material.

congrats! I just tried on a white/silver dial as well. what's your wrist size? I can just wear it. It's not the best fit, but to be honest, i don't have much choice since 41mm is the most common size. All the special editions also come in 41mm.

Thanks, I really am enjoying this beautiful dial. It's also much more versatile than it seems.

It ranges from 6.5-6.75. Who cares about fit buddy, what you like is more important!
