Audemars Piguet You...

the offshore variants continue to come off the mill and its coming to be a bit of killing the goose that laid the golden egg... others may argue though that AP sells each and every one of their limited and unlimited ;) editions so why does it matter... i dun have a strong stance on this anymore, bring on the multicolor ROOs i say, more choice for us all (but please don't over price them just because of a few color changes... i mean how much does orange, yellow and red paint cost? :)

of course this one has forged carbon case and ceramic bezel going for it... surprisingly non limited(although it costs about the same as a limited ed roo) and nice... as mentioned previously, i would make the hands yellow too

different print ads from the usual water and ROO theme ;)

next up the don ramon de la cruz limited ed... (makes me think of the other don dude in zorro ;)

i am not even interested to know what the LE celebrates or is about...a retailer, an association, a rich persons pet project, whatever... its just another LE. it looked pretty fine in press pics and AP's rose gold ROOs are typically very nice...

but this live pic of it is a bit of a let down... just doesn't pop in this pic... i suspect it may be much better in the metal though :)

Hey Raph,

The Don Ramon is for the opening of the Madrid AP boutique. Nice LE IMO, like the black numerals.

Cheers,

Stefano

yup i know that and anyone who googles will find out too... i just think its no longer important what is the reason for the LE as they come out with so many... end of day, one should buy it if they like it and believe its worth its asking price.

cheers
