That would make me cry. Wondering if any boutique is willing to confirm or deny. The 15407 did have a pretty long run already, by AP standards. OTOH, it's hard to see them get rid of (in my view) the most beautiful openworked/skeletonized movement anywhere. Maybe it would live on with some design tweaks and a new model number?

Bummer if so. The most beautiful open worked in my opinion.

Also, the fact that it’s still up on the AP website under the current collection designation doesn’t mean much – look at some other legacy models like the 15500 that are still on there but presumably not being produced anymore.

I hope they continue this model in some iteration, maybe some slight tweaks.

If this is true, I'm going to be really sad. It's been my grail and was hoping to get a CE version in 2023. Hopefully, they release a new version of it.

I think this was aired as a rumour much earlier this year too. At that time I asked AP and it wasn't anything they knew about. The rumour may have come about because of the new openwork movement in the 16204 and people making speculative leaps.

I don't think Calibre 7124 in the 16204 is intended to replace Calibre 3132 in the 15407 (and 5 other current references). But either way, I guess it is possible the 15407 gets discontinued. I'd be shocked if Calibre 3132 was retired all together across all references.

It’s possible tell me my AD because maybe they prepared the new Skeleton with actual movement. But till now they don’t know nothing about.

In fact it probably makes sense as this is the only watch in the line-up still based on the old movement from the 15400, even if skeletonized.

Unfortunately, that's a pretty good point.
