    In all honesty, IDK how anyone would find that AP good looking. If that is your thing, then you do you. But I think Invicta pulls off the same effect as that particular AP at better price.

    Daytona for me.

    Re: Ap Roo vs gold Daytona

    I traded my Daytona (exact same model) for an Aquanaut. The all gold Daytona was so heavy it kept moving back on my wrist. I was constantly fiddling with it to get it positioned where I wanted it. It drove me nuts!
    The AP I have no experience with, but I do prefer titanium to any other material for comfort. I’m not fond of the DD chronograph module, but the AP automatic that it sucks power from is among the finest made. Given your existing Daytona collection, I would suggest getting the AP.

    Re: Ap Roo vs gold Daytona

    Neither of these watches are attractive to me, and the AP ROO looks like it overhangs your wrist. I prefer the stainless steel ceramic bezel Daytona, or a regular AP RO 15400/15500.

    Neither is to my taste, but I'd take the Daytona, simply because it's a very comfortable watch.

    Neither. Just get the 15500 RO and be happy instead of the overpriced and overhyped Daytona.
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature
