Incoming - My First AP

After a long wait across multiple countries I finally got the call for my first AP. I am very excited and loving the ROO 43mm in taupe. To me it is perfect and a great way to get into the brand. This watch will be a companion for many years and trips to come.

Thanks for all the messages. I must also say that the whole experience with the AP Boutique was flawless from the super supportive Sales Manager who captured my profile and worked on my allocation all the way to a great handover experience.

Big congrats! That dial IRL is quite stunning. I have yet to see a photo that captures it just right.

Yes I agree! It is so stunning to look at but almost impossible to capture with a camera. Best to enjoy it in real life.

I have a small wrist at around 6.5 inches so this watch is pushing the limits but still sits very comfortable.

Quick q to the other ROO 43 owners in this thread. Is it normal that the crown screwing action feels a bit crunchy? I can only compare it to my Rolex Explorer where that is completely smooth.

My diver was a bit like that in the first couple weeks, slightly rough. It is smooth now. Beautiful watch!
