Roots Pablow says:

Beautiful watch, but no seconds hand would be a deal breaker for me.

gmshadowtraders says:

0:36 I would do anything to get my hands on a 1969 Seiko Quartz of Astron. That to me is my grail, maybe the Rolex Oysterquartz blue day-date in white gold being a close second.

Great watch great size. The lack of a second hand is a no no for me. I get that it’s paying homage to the original which didn’t have a second hand. However without one a watch doesn’t feel alive to me.

MegaRichardHoward says:

Great informative clip , great job.

Johnnie 888 says:

Hi Dylan, why this ultra thin Jumbo 15202ST doesn’t equipped with a second hand?

Ben Champlin says:

If you review a very thin watch, it would be a good idea to include the thickness of the watch.

JAPD says:

There should be a special discount on this model for people born in 1972 😉

rujina begum says:

If only it had a seconds hand for that reason I love the 15300.

Johnny Guitare says:

The dial pattern is “tapisserie” (tapestry), not “patisserie” (pastry).
That variation of the 15202 is the best they have done in many years. I would not, however, qualify this as a sports watch. Given its thinness and elegance, it’s more a dress watch on a bracelet than an actual sports watch. Besides, between the fragility of the caliber 2121, the delicate brushed finishing, the mediocre water resistance and the astronomical cost of servicing it with AP, one would be a fool to engage in any sports activity with it.
You are exactly right on AP’s reliance on the RO line. Frankly, they should rename themselves “The Royal Oak Company”, because there’s nothing in the rest of their production that’s worth owning over a PP, VC or A.L&S.

Stu says:

You can if you buy the 33 quartz version 🙂

Tudorharilsson Holdings says:

Great review

Son Kim says:

Shame on me that I just saw this watch a few day ago for the first time. In my eyes this is the most beautiful watch ever.

Chip Wong says:

Overrated. A mechanical watch without a second hand is like….

Tim Green says:

Grail watch right there. One day…

Tim Girian says:

Nice video mate

Enrico Fiorelli says:

In my opinion AP makes the most beautiful timepieces ever. Great video as usual!!


Amazing review! AP would be so lucky to employ you as the brand ambassador. RO, my favourite of all time.

DG B says:

Simply beautiful, a must have for every serious watch collector.

Shadi Magdy says:

One day….

The Casual Gents says:

How the RO supposed to be. A serie shit. Its a classic!

Ming Ying Ling - says:

My grail piece, period!
