I just
wanted to share three shots of the AP Traditional Extra-Thin.

Not one of
the most exposed lines from AP. 

The cushion shaped case, the skeleton hands and
the applied numerals… 

Thin tapered lugs…

Not really
what we are used to see from AP!

The pink
gold case is 41 mm in diameter and only 7.97 mm thick.

Inside is
the caliber 2120.

Open case
back to allow you to see the skeletonized pink gold rotor.


The satin
brushed bezel put a very nice frame to this watch!

So, what do
you think of this “off the beaten path AP”?




Not really to my taste, personally

The cushion case at 41mm will look enormous on the wrist

And that broad, flat, brushed bezel seems tremendously inelegant, in apparent contrast to the detailed hands and almost-Breguet numerals

And that tiny crown?

Except for the movement, I don’t find many redeeming qualities in this piece.

IMO, one of AP’s poorest efforts, but aesthetics are subjective so perhaps there are others who love the piece.
