My Blue Royal Oak 26331ST is in tha house!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

Before my 2 week trip I ordered the new AP Royal Oak 26331ST. Once I came home my package was there waiting for me!:D

 

As usual I ordered it from Andrew (Trustytime). Shipping took about 4 days but unfortunately i was not home. A few days ago I came back and finally I was able to open it and... WOW what a watch. I had no AP in my collection anymore and I missed the brand a bit. I noticed in Andrew his earlier posts it seemed they put allot of effort in this watch. Well... I can confirm that 100%.

 

I took the blue version because the blue version is pretty rare in real life. Only the Boutiques sell these and they are pretty much not availabe/ sold out. I believe the blue version is also a bit higher prices compared to the black or white dialed version.

 

The finishing of the case/ bracelet is regarding finish pretty much equal to GEN. I hardly could notice any difference with the piece a business friend has. The polished parts are done very well just like the brushed area's on the watch. Absolutely stunning!!! The clasp is also pure art and it closes and opens smooth like butter.

 

The crystal is very clean looking, No AR applied which is same as per GEN. Nevertheless it looks very crisp and it doesn't need any AR anyway in my opinion.

 

The blue dial has a bit of a sunburst effect and pops out beautifull when the light hits it. Also the dial seems to be made very accurate just like all the inscriptions which are applied. Pics don't do justice with this rep. The non recessed datewheel was also something which attraced me, just like the different subdial positions compared the earlier Oaks.
