    AP 15450 VS 15300 - Pics. Your input appreciated

    On to the hunt for my next, I stumble across a great watch that I could add as part of quality to my very small collection I am trying to build.
    The true Genta design, a Royal Oak.
    The white Dial 15450 has a mesmerising dial, at 37mm is a little understated, and dressier in my opinion.
    The 15300 which is easily available in black, and harder to find in blue, is a 39mm, sportier at that size, and has better wrist presence, and a more flat coloured dial.

    My wrists are 6" by the way.
    I think both work in terms of size, just not sure which is the better option.

    Would getting parts of a discontinued model from AP when getting it serviced make a difference for the future? The 15300 is discontinued.

    The blue is a bit more sporty than the white which looks more dressy, IMHO..but honestly, both .look stunning...go with your heart, it's an absolute win win, Sir.

    I would go with the 15300ST in blue.

    Thanks for the response.
    Definitely agreed.
    I feel the blue would give me more wrist time because I can wear it with casual. Much sportier.
    The white/silver dial is a beauty too....

    It's usually harder to find it in blue. Black is easily available though.

    +1, I'd choose the blue as well. Looks really good on your wrist!

    The blue in the larger 15400ST is now a boutique exclusive, because it's such a desirable timepiece. The blue dial has an iridescence to it which gives it much more complexity than either the black or white dials.

    The size of the 15300 looks better on you so i say go for that one.

    I'm into white dials in a really big way so it would be a bit of a no brainer for me.

    The white one is perfect in terms of size (to my mind, Royal Oak is one of the less forgiving watches if you go too big), but the blue dial seems to suit you better.
