    Default AP ROO RG Rubberclad dial

    I picked up this watch a few months ago. JF AP ROO RG Rubberclad

    FS: AP ROO Rose Gold Rubber Clad modified


    Wanted to get some input on whether or not replacing the crystal with a prof 2x AR would help with making the AP logo more visible in all lighting conditions. Right now only the “A” of the AP logo on the dial is visible under all light conditions, you need to tilt the dial to be able to see the “P”. It might just be something with the reflective properties of what the rep log dial is plated with and SOL. But if the 2x AR would allow more light onto the dial and reflect better of the log I was going to try it. Thoughts?

    It may be an issue with the printing on the dial.

    Is there any fix other than find another watch? Can those logos be replaced? repainted/plated?

    I've only used one modder off here in the past, but haven't checked with him yet. thought I would post for options.

    Based on the sales thread you posted for the rep AP watch you purchased it appears you paid a lot for it without gen parts.

    Fixing the dial is not an easy mod.

    paid less than ask, closer to 9. anything gen your looking at 2k+ from what i've seen over the last few years. People on this forum seem to want close to full price on their mods, especially these AP's.

    Looks like I may end up just living with it.

    appreciate the help....back to the drawing board.
