I don't think there is a right or wrong answer here, both the Overseas and Royal Oak are outstanding watches that I would rate as equals. It comes down to which model you like better. As stated in my post, I prefer the modern look, size, and comfort of the Overseas slightly over the iconic "70's" look of the AP. With that being said I like both offerings very much, hence the reason for owning a version of the VC & AP. Good luck with your decision, I hope the review was helpful.
