    PP or APROO this time?

    Buddies, forget the Pam 183 (which i choosed few days ago) which one would you pick out of these two watches if it were you, i'm planning to pull the trigger on either one soon to add to my collection, IMO Patek Philippe would be the top brand to reach when you're a collector but this is just my opinion of course, as for APROO Safari i'm in love with its style and beauty, however for the same amount of money here in HK my AD can offer me the PP, so i'm in troubles now with this dilemma, i want to hear you dudes what you gonna say :thanks

    The dial on the PP is so NOT PP!
    What, are they going Fashionable? Looks like a Mudtyre track!
    The rest of the watch is , well, PP. Superb!

    although patek would be the opitomy of any collection, that particular one isnt singing to me. the Safari on the other hand, is really my dream watch, the watch i would give up collecting watches for!

    If its between those two models I gotta say the APROO...I love Patek and would pretty much take any of them, but the AP is pretty stellar looking.

    APROO: spectacular brushed finish / brown leather combo. the safari name really fits.

    Depends on priorities and personal tatse. The two watches are so completely different. The Patek is so much smaller and lighter. It wears very nicely and IMO is quite versatile. I defintely prefer it the Nautilus. The ROO, on the other hand, is massive, at least on my wrist (7"), and wears okay. It's an iconic piece and the finishing is top-notch. For me, it's a more difficult watch to wear, being strictly casual, being to big for work-wear and too nice for anything rugged. Overall, an odd comparison, albeit two very nice watches.
