Incoming 50th ROC Khaki green

I had almost given up on getting an allocation until I received a message from my boutique manager in September. Picked up recently and absolutely love it.

Itís my second AP, first one is a Code 3 hander in RG and blue dial which I specifically asked for in 2021.

To those of you still waiting, keep the faith and follow up regularly.

A big point here is that you didn’t need to have a big spend history to get this great piece. Congratulations on a great 2 pieces collection!

Thank you!
I was very specific on the pieces I want and the chrono was my 1st wish.
Last year I declined the 38mm chrono, because it does not have the in-house movement, open case back and date window is not symmetrical. Tiny things perhaps but for me these matter.
And I told the manager that if AP releases a chrono with these upgrades, I will be all over it.

Both blue and green are super nice and top hits.
