Keep sharing pictures please! This watch is so underrated

Unlikely, major QC issues with the current one and supply is massively constrained as a result (only the ones that pass make it to watch stage)

I feel like AP produced 26393NB and NR way less than 77350CE year of 2021.

Quite possibly. Although, I was never deemed worthy enough to see a 77350CE in person, but I was able to see two NR's in person.

I also suspect NB was more popular and in demand from higher spenders. Though I'm sure it's like White/Black Daytona where they are actually made in equal quantity.

Does anyone have high res photos of the purple dial variants, in natural lighting?
Real interested in that model, but want to see how the color looks in natural light.

Will take some better pictures over the weekend. My code came with black kevlar strap, not the purple alligator (not a fan of that strap). Will buy a black alligator in the next coming weeks: Few pics in natural light:

That purple + Rose gold really looks great! I plan to do the kevlar on mine as well.

Yup, love the color combination. I’m actually hoping that AP makes a white gold with smoked green dial, same dial as the RO.

THAT PURPLE! In my opinion, AP code 1159 has outdone other brands when it comes to the dial. In many other brands, lacquered dial tends to have imperfections. The code’s lacquered dial is perfect.

[Flamesuit has been thoroughly donned]

I'm almost 99% sure I know the answer already, but are AP Boutiques still offering any discounts off MSRP for a standard code? Thinking more and more about springing for the 15210 w/ purple dial and kevlar.
I read some posts from about a year ago here that suggested the boutiques were offering discounts off MSRP. But I realize 2020 may as well be 20 years ago in terms of how this market has changed.

I bought my code last month at AP House. Rose gold purple dial with kevlar/rubber strap. I did't ask for a discount seeing I didn't want to come over as cheap, and I know for certain Codes there is a "waiting list".

If you have are an AP existing customer, you can always ask for a discount. You should have bought the Code in December prices went up with 1,500USD...

I highly recommend the purple dial. First Code they showed me was the two tone with smoked grey dial. Beautiful watch, I was convinced to buy it, till I saw the purple dial...

Be sure to take a video of the look on your SAs face when you ask for a discount!

Its absolutely stunning. Fell in love with it immediately when the AP team showed it to me. Am wearing it very regularly and its weirdly turning into my daily office watch

I think they have reduced supply of this one for some reason. I was told that not many are coming through now. Maybe competing priorities for ceramic manufacturing at AP?

The Code is typically a much nice watch in person than in pictures, so this one must be truly amazing in person. Will check it out.

Yes you are right

The numbers around the bezel going up to 52 represent the week number as the the year consist of 52 weeek

Absolutely killer piece! I'm going to put in request for one this week. How long did it take you to get yours?

The more I see my CODE and other's CODEs the more I want another one...

Might place a request for a perpetual calendar. For some reason I'm more attracted to the CODE line than he RO(O). Would be great if AP brings out a WG with a green dial.
