      Hi everyone,

      I recently purchased my 15500 from Andrew and only have amazing reviews about working with him. If anyone is looking for a TD, I would highly recommend him!

      As for the watch, it is stunning. I have owned a few gen Royal Oak's and this one is pretty close!

      I am going to have a few modifications done on it and wanted to get your opinions on what can be done to make this watch even more enhanced and "closer to gen" than it already is.

      The basics which I understand from reading through the comments are silencing the rotor and refining the links. However, is there more to be done? Does the bezel or bevel need any updating? Does it need a 2xAR or is that not even on the gen model? Anything else?

      Would love to hear your thoughts!

      Thanks and enjoy the rest of your weekends.

          For the 15500, it is an excellent out of the box rep.

          What I have done (collectively on various reps)
          - silence the rotor
          - align and polish the bezel screws
          - Align the markers and logo where necessary
          - Bevel and polish the case and bracelet edges (for aesthetics and comfort)
          - Realign the datewheel where necessary

          Mostly refinements as opposed to major mods, as it is a very nice rep out of the box already.

                To each their own. I'm sure a 2xar crystal makes the dial look great. But if you're looking for accuracy to gen then its not a mod you want to get done

                      I received the ZF 15500 in blue earlier this week - total stunner in person!

                      I am having some issues with the movement itself though. The rotor gets stuck in a certain position, but some of the time it works. I can hand wind it just fine. Anyone else experience this type of issue as well? I haven't really come across it from browsing this thread and other places.

                        Just ordered one from the TD , i'm very excited to join the 15500 club

                          Hi everyone, first time posting here.
                          Just got my QC pics from PT for my 15500. One thing that I noticed is that the dial seems to be slightly rotated to the left of the watch based on the screws alignment. Should I RL this or is this an easy fix? I am planning to get the watch serviced anyway when I got it.

                              Do you seriously even understand what you’re asking?

                                to my beginner eyes this looks really good and would accept in a heart beat, the DW looks really centered, thats juicy when its straight from the factory.
