Let's see, 15202 is $33k, CE is $25k extra on top of steel, new movement - let's say $7k. So that'll be ~$65k. Where do I sign up?

Hoping that they reintroduce the 15300... chances of that happening = 0, but you can always wish.

39MM is and was the best size for the RO.

I would love for AP to bring back a dual time or GMT complication.

Tiffany dial 15202 please! Lol. Just kidding.

- 15500 and 15202 in ceramic!
- New 38/39mm ROC with the date actually centered on the diagonal
- 37mm Codes
- Smaller unisex Offshores (the only reason I don't buy them is they're too big for my wrist!)

I would love to buy all of these.
A 39 mm chrono with a version of the 4401 somehow stuffed into there would be incredible.

This is a great wishlist!

I would love to see a 37mm Code. Theyíve really grown on me but they are just too big and tall on my wrist. To add to this list I think a 15450 in ceramic and even an updated 36mm RO would be good additions.

Good suggestion! 15450 in CE would be amazing.

Something very interesting in this cheeky teaser video.
Look at the profile of this case. And look at the offshore straps on the left. Is this teasing an upcoming offshore more in the style of something like the concept or dare I say RM-type profile?

bulk metallic glass or tantalum RO? former would retain the "classic" look of the watch while adding some scratch resistance. latter would justify an increase in pricing (difficulty in machining), and set the Jumbo apart from the more common 41mm big brother..

AP has used both materials already, so they have the necessary experience..

Tantalum or BMG would be epic!!!!!

Which reference has AP used BMG on? A concept? Please point me in the right direction.

I'm hoping for a full BMG QP, that would be my grail. As much as the ceramic models are cool and meticulously made I'd love a robust metallic equivalent, something that looks 'normal' yet doesn't show the fine scratch marks associated with steel.

As to the rest of the speculation as to models, the only thing that would surprise me is if AP doesn't truly stun us with something that none of us expect.

p.s.

Again, I think ceramic is awesome, but in my opinion it won't be remembered as anything more than a fleeting fad. BMG on the other hand, with its true metallic qualities may well stand the test of time (no pun intended) and be in full production for years to come.

p.p.s. I think the Ceramic QP 26585 may be the one ceramic piece that is part of AP's defining history and in 50/100 years will be THE piece to have. I want one desperately :)

That's a pretty strong comment. FHB is known to be marmite, you either love him or hate him and very few are indifferent to him. But, how many FUBARS has he really made? The BP was the most divisive AP I can ever remember, so much so that the vitriol on here and the rest of the web was impossible to miss...but it sold out uber quickly and commands huge premiums on the grey market. Even the hated Code is now a super refined product that gets stronger with each iteration.

I'm not defending him but he's actually really approachable and good to his word. I imagine that the AP board loves him. To a degree so do I as he's responsible for the full ceramic models that we all covet, and I can't help thinking that he's got a few more sensational tricks up his sleeve before he calls it a day at AP.
