    I still think APRO is a tiny bit nicer though, cause of the tapisserie dial. But these overseas are really growing on me.
    Well, everyone is different, but all I can say is that when the opportunity came up to acquire two watches that I have wanted for a long time, one of which is very difficult to obtain, I needed to part with a couple of pieces. My APRO left, but the Overseas stayed, and I can't see it ever leaving.

    Oh you sold the RO?
    If I may ask, which aspects of overseas do you like better than RO?

    To me the 2x2mm micro adjustment and quick strap change are very good value proposals for overseas against RO

    Pretty sure there is zero "value" proposal in 15-20K watches! 😁

    I narrowed down to VCOS 3rd gen and AP 15300 and chose VCOS because it looked more cooler to me. Despite being less desired and the 15300 having gone up $4-5K in value since, I still feel I made the right decision "for me."

    But I will say all things equal, I must have an on the fly adjustable bracelet. My wrists fluctuate too much through the day.

    Yes, the comfort of the bracelet was a big part of it. The interchangeable straps less so—I’ve worn the rubber strap occasionally (it’s excellent), but have never worn the leather one, I like the bracelet too much and have other dressier choices. To me, the VC overall is just more comfortable, less prone to scratches and less blingy. Also it's still the most beautiful blue dial I've seen.

    Were you able to walk in to the dealer and grab one or did you have to wait? I know last year it was impossible to find one at any dealer in the world.

    Black dial ones can be grabbed at AD/boutique, the blue and silver ones have waitlist.

    Depends where you are. I visited some dealers a couple weeks ago in New York City and there were three blue ones available amongst the various dealers. And there has been basically at least 1 every time I have ever popped into one in Manhattan.

    I recently spoke to an AD about a blue one and was told that it would be a 4 month wait.

    Honestly all, I am really tired of this steel sport watch craze.

    I think I was over it a while now.

    I am not sure how long this market will support the bubble.
