    What brand have you been wearing for the past 28 years? Is the AP a new acquisition...or is it the watch you stopped wearing? Any other details you feel like sharing?

    Unfortunately that bezel looks like it has been seriously overpolished...

    What reference is that?

    Yikes. That is a very soft looking bezel. But the model is a scratch magnet, so I understand why someone polished the soul out of it. A genuine AP Royal Oak is a fine watch.

    Is now a good time to raise doubts about the dial as well?

    I wore a Submariner for like a decade. I specifically bought this one to replace it.

    Actually, the watch is in good shape, I'm just the worst watch photographer on the planet. The first thing I did when I got it was make sure all the brushed areas had the grain going the same way, and they do. I know I wrote the post about polishing but there's no way I'm even going to try doing anything to this one because there's no way I could do it without screwing something up, especially with the combo of brushed metal and polished metal. There are a few tiny blemishes near a few of the stick markers.
