    Best 39mm Royal Oak AP

    Unfortunately, a search was not able to find me answer to topic (most posts 2012-4).

    But for people whose wrist is too small for a 41mm 15400...

    Who makes the best 39mm Royal Oak AP?

    Thanks!

    Good question. I recently did a Franken 15300 for somebody (gen dial, gen hands, reworked case, etc.) and that seemed to be the ticket to ride into 39mm heaven. As of yet, NO factory has done a respectable 15202. And, yes, the 15400 is too big, even for my 7.3 inch wrists.

      Buy a 15450 37mm. From what I’ve read, they are finished equally as good as 15400. Perfect for smaller wrist. Even though they are thicker case depth then Gen, a member at rep geek said that after trying the Gen the difference on wrist wasnt much. Have Mr slaughterer thin it for you to Gen dimensions if it was an issue. I plan to do this later in the year when I get mine.

        15450 is just a tad too small for the over 7 inch crowd. I will put it this way, borrowing a simile from A. Bourdain: 39mm on a RO is like wearing underwear made out of Wagyu beef riding in the back of a 24 karat gold Rolls Royce.

          Hahaha, my wrist is under 7 so the 15450 will be the best option for me.

          Do you have any pic of this franken?

              Who has the best 15202
              The only issue with JF V2 15450 is 1mm too thick?
