Hi, I've just received QC photos for a AP Royal Oak Jumbo, does everything look okay? In particular, do the bezel screws and the dial alignment look acceptable?

This is the watch I ordered:

Thanks for looking, and any feedback and comments.

The 6 marker might not be straight. I had this issue, ask Angus for a better pic or get it straightened

It looks straight to me. :)
Beautiful watch by the way, I am also about to pull the trigger

Let us know how it is. I have web dying for one but I heard the diver v2 is a much better build quality.. It's just so hard to get everything you like..

Okay, I got Puretime to send some additional QC photos of the watch. Two questions:

1. Does the rehaut look centered (seems okay to me, but a second opinion is always appreciated)?

2. Does the bottom left corner of the AP logo okay, it looks like there might be a slight blemish there (might only be noticeable on the macro shots, but not in real life)?

Yeah the A looks bad. I checked on mine and mine is fine and you can tell it on the wrist. Still think the 6 hour marker is pointing just to the right and this will bug you as the hour markers are long on the jumbo. I think get a new one, it is too nice a watch with an amazing dial for these dial problems.

Thanks, I've rejected the watch, since that issue with the AP logo seems to catch the light in many of the photos, so my guess that it would be noticeable, even though it is really small.

Anyone have recommendations of which dealer to get this watch with the white face dial? These QC pics didn't look too good to me.

I had a beautiful white dial which I sold a few months back, I got it from another member, but I think it originally came from Josh.

Okay, they swapped out the original watch for another one.

If nothing else, seems to have more accurate timekeeping. From what I see, the issue with the bottom left corner of the AP logo seems to have been resolved, and I think the dial is properly centered... there is a slight reflection at the edges, but I assume that is because the crystal is beveled at the edge, as opposed to a misaligned rehaut?

I guess the same questions as before, do the indices on the dial look properly aligned, and is the rehaut properly centered. Any other comments or observations would of course be helpful too.

Look at mine without bracalet...

Does anyone have macro shots of the hour markers on one of these AP Royal Oak 15300 models? Never really understood why they call some rep models "Jumbo" when they don't correspond to the Jumbo models of the real ones.
Anyway, I am curious to how well the hour markers match up since they are different then the other AP RO models.

I heard the true jumbo is ref 15202. So is the 15300 a rep of a real model"?

The 15300 is the ref # of the real model for the replica the OP linked to.
