New and blue!

So very pleased to get this today. Blue dials have always been my favourite colour and Iíve wanted a blue Royal Oak for many years. Itís watch perfection for me. My photography skills arenít the best and wonít bring out how amazing this dial is.

Wow, congrats! I've been waiting on a blue dial since 2018 haha, awesome piece man, love the cleaner dial on the 50th as well as the elongated batons.

Thanks everyone!

A couple of pictures of the 15500 and 15510 side by side for comparison. The 15510 doesn’t have the ‘AP’ on the dial, instead the markers are slightly longer.

Also how the the watches differ under sunlight - quite stunning really.

Congrats! That blue is tremendous. Out of curiosity, did you get both refs from the AD?

Congrats! That looks amazing! The longer hands definitely bring more balance to the dial.

Iím wishing for a blue dial as a next watch as well. Also hoping itís a 50th Anniversary one as it definitely makes it even more special.

Beautiful deep blue! You captured it very nicely and looks perfect on your wrist. And the duo of white and blue are stunning.
