Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Chronograph 42mm

Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Chronograph 42mm (1993)

Audemars Piguet copy unveils the new evolution of the original Royal Oak Offshore in 1993

Swiss high-end watch manufacturer Audemars Piguet released a new evolution of the original Royal Oak Offshore in 1993, which includes three materials: stainless steel, titanium metal or 18 carat rose gold. Although the three 42mm watches retain the essence of the original timepiece, they are equipped with the latest automatic winding flyback chronograph from the watch factory, a new interchangeable strap system and a slightly modified dial design. The sapphire caseback has also returned, bringing extraordinary vision to the hand-made integrated chronograph.

Constantly improving performance
Three new Royal Oak Offshore best quality replica watches are equipped with a new self-winding integrated chronograph Calibre 4404, equipped with a column wheel and flyback function.

Unlike ordinary chronographs, the flyback function allows the wearer to stop, reset and start the chronograph with a simple action. The column wheel and the vertical clutch system work together. When the chronograph is started or stopped, the hands will react accordingly without any signs of beating. In addition, the button feels smooth when pressed. The patented reset mechanism ensures that each counter pointer instantly resets to zero.

The extraordinary vision of the 4404 movement
This new evolution has an anti-glare sapphire back cover that shows the internal workings of Calibre 4404, including its column wheel and the so-called “dance” of the chronograph hammer when the chronograph function is activated.

The audience can also admire the special 22-carat rose gold oscillating weight and exquisite hand-crafted decoration of the movement, including “Côtes de Genève”, satin-brushed and polished chamfers.

Reinterpreted in stainless steel, rose gold or titanium
The new Royal Oak Offshore watch offers stainless steel and two new case options: one is titanium and the other is 18-carat rose gold. Audemars Piguet released a previous model made entirely of titanium in 2004 (reference number 25721TI), which was the first time it demonstrated the evolution of the 18-carat rose gold “Petite Tapisserie” watch. The cases and bracelets of these three timepieces are hand-decorated alternately with the manufacturer’s signature satin brushed and polished chamfers.

The stainless steel and rose gold models have blue rubber buttons and crowns, as well as blue rubber gaskets that seal the bezel to the case. In contrast, the crown, washers and buttons of a titanium timepiece are made of black rubber.

Unique design combining past and present
Three new Royal Oak Offshore watches are faithful to the original aesthetics, incorporating the “Petite Tapisserie” pattern. The stainless steel model uses the iconic blue dial of the Royal Oak Offshore in 1993. This color is called “Night Blue, Cloud 50” in the archives of the watch factory. The rose gold reference model highlights the “Night Blue, Cloud 50” dial, with a rose gold timing counter that echoes the color of the precious case. Last but not least, the titanium version is decorated with a light gray dial, a black counter and a black inner bezel are more prominent.

Although the timepiece retains the original Royal Oak Offshore vertical chronograph display, the hours and small seconds are inverted: the hour counter is now at 12 o’clock and the small seconds at 6 o’clock. For its part, the minute counter remains at the 9 o’clock position. In addition, all counters are now equidistant from the center of the dial to increase visual appeal.

To pay tribute to the original watch, the gold application AP initials and the transferred “Audemars Piguet” signature are located at 3 o’clock. The date window also uses a magnifying glass integrated in the dial to magnify the date numbers, just like the 1993 timepiece.

Interchangeable bracelet and strap
These new models complement the factory’s new interchangeable strap system-appearing on metal bracelets for the first time. Interchangeability has been directly integrated into the buckle and the rivets of the case, perfectly blending with the aesthetic criteria of the case.

Customers can easily and efficiently replace the bracelet and buckle of a new timepiece with a quick click and release, while the double push system provides the best safety when wearing the luxury watch on the wrist.

The metal bracelet can be replaced with a rubber strap for a more sporty look and lifestyle, because the latest 42mm version is equipped with a second interchangeable rubber strap-the stainless steel and rose gold versions are blue; the black one Titanium sheet. Completely waterproof, when wearing a rubber strap, these three models can travel to a depth of 100 meters underwater.

The 42mm Royal Oak Offshore 2021 Interchangeable Strap Series also includes light blue and khaki textured rubber straps, as well as black calfskin straps.

A more modern but timeless watch
The Royal Oak offshore model designed by Emmanuel Gueit entered the world of high-end watches in 1993. Although its octagonal bezel and hexagonal screws retain the aesthetic guidelines of the Royal Oak, the Royal Oak Offshore has challenged the established traditional bezel with a huge visible black gasket and rubber coating with its amazing 42mm case size. Crown and buttons, and the curved links of the bracelet. Nicknamed “The Beast”, this sturdy and muscular Royal Oak watch leads the trend of large-scale watches. Over time, the Royal Oak Offshore has become an innovation platform, with a large number of new materials, case sizes, complications and colors, while still being faithful to the timeless design of the original model.

In 2013, the original Royal Oak Offshore watch underwent a major redesign for the first time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the watch. This limited edition of 20 pieces (model 26218) is equipped with Calibre 3126/3840 and was first introduced in the Royal Oak Offshore series (model 26170) in 2006. This watch is also equipped with a sapphire back cover, allowing you to have a glance at the self-winding mechanical movement handmade inside. This piece also witnessed the extraordinary return of the “Petite Tapisserie” pattern, which decorated the original Royal Oak and was used in the Royal Oak Offshore series for the last time in 2008.

The Royal Oak Offshore has undergone another design evolution in 2018 for the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the series. As the previous anniversary, this watch uses the original “Petite Tapisserie” pattern, marking its official return to the Royal Oak offshore core series. The 2018 edition is another tribute to the original timepiece, with the words “Royal Oak Offshore” engraved on its solid caseback. However, this special edition presents subtle differences in dial aesthetics, especially the logo renamed in 2012 and the unified layout of the entire dial.

The latest watch released this year adopts the manufacturer’s latest integrated chronograph technology, interchangeable strap system and slightly updated dial aesthetics, once again improving this iconic timepiece, as a timeless Royal Oak offshore watch Provide continuously improved performance and efficiency.

Audemars Piguet has a new interpretation of the 1993 original Royal Oak Offshore

The first Royal Oak Offshore model launched a sporty and expressive series in the Audemars Piguet series. Now, the watch factory is showing a further development of this first model in 1993. This Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Chronograph comes with a stainless steel, titanium or rose gold case. The dial is based on the original. However, internally, the state-of-the-art manufacturing caliber 4404 with integrated chronograph and flyback function is in play.

Case material is steel, titanium or rose gold
Audemars Piguet has launched three versions of the new Royal Oak Offshore Watch. There are stainless steel case, titanium case and 18 carat rose gold case. All variants have the same 42 mm diameter and 15.2 mm height. The buttons and crown of the stainless steel and rose gold models are made of blue rubber. The sealing ring under the bezel is also made of blue rubber. In the titanium version, these rubber parts are black. At the same time, on the back, the sapphire crystal case back allows you to see the inside of the watch. All models are also waterproof to 10 bar or 100 meters.

The Royal Oak Offshore 42mm dial is still (mostly) faithful to the original
The dials of the three new chronographs are decorated with a “small tapestry” pattern inspired by the original. In the stainless steel version, it appears in the typical blue color of the Royal Oak series. The pink gold version has the same dial, but here it is paired with a pink gold chronograph. At the same time, the titanium version is equipped with a light gray dial, and the black counter stands out. This version also has a black inner bezel with a tachymeter scale placed on it. On the other two watches, the inner bezel is blue. Audemars Piguet fake

The chronograph counters are arranged vertically as in the 1993 prototype, but the hour counters have been replaced with small seconds. Now there is a 12-hour counter at 12 o’clock, a 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock, and a small seconds counter at 6 o’clock. In addition, the golden “AP” initials and the signature of “Audemars Piguet” are also applied at 3 o’clock. Last but not least, the watchmaker placed a date window at 3 o’clock. Like the original version, it has a magnifying glass that can magnify numbers.

Equipped with calibre 4404
The 42mm inside Royal Oak Offshore is in the internal caliber 4404, it is based on the caliber 4401, which is also used in the new Royal Oak Offshore with 43mm cases. The difference lies in the arrangement of the counters, which are located at 12 o’clock and 9 o’clock. The movement consists of 433 individual parts and provides an integrated chronograph. The latter uses a column wheel and a vertical clutch to achieve no lag start. In addition, the time measurement can be restarted immediately through the flyback function. online men watches

Like the Offshore series, this movement is also equipped with an automatic winding device. The open-worked oscillating weight made of 22-carat rose gold provides a maximum power reserve of up to 70 hours for the barrel. Through the sapphire crystal back cover, you can admire the Geneva stripes, satin finish and hand-polished edges.

AP’s interchangeable shoulder strap system
These watches are also equipped with Audemars Piguet’s quick-change wristband system. For the first time, metal bracelets can also be replaced by snapping in and pulling out quickly. Thanks to the double push system, the watch can still be worn firmly on the wrist. In addition to the metal bracelet made of the case material, each model is equipped with an additional rubber strap. This extra strap is blue on the steel and rose gold version and black on the titanium version.

Historical review: AP Royal Oak 15500 model


Audemars Piguet is one of the well-known brands in the field of luxury watchmaking. Although there have been many different AP models over the years, with the emergence of new versions and the continuous advancement of technology, a few products can maintain strong popularity. One of the best examples of this is the Royal Oak series.

In this article, we will have a deeper understanding of the Royal Oak series, explore its history, and at the same time have a deeper understanding of model updates over the years and the most popular watches in the history of the series.

A brief history of AP Royal Oak watches

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak collection was launched at the Swiss Watch Fair in 1972, which later became known as the Basel Watch Fair. It was released in the context of Swiss luxury watch manufacturers’ increasing attention to “quartz” technology, and is widely regarded as the world’s first luxury sports watch.

The defining features of the Royal Oak include a hexagonal bezel and exposed screw heads. The overall design is inspired by traditional diving helmets. The first model introduced was the Royal Oak Ref. The 5402ST is equipped with a 39 mm case with a thickness of only 7 mm, which helps to provide a sophisticated and luxurious feel to sports watches, which has always been exclusive to luxury formal watches.

This model also introduces the self-winding Calibre 2121 movement, which has excellent accuracy, shock resistance and is fully integrated with the timepiece’s date display function. In the years since, various new complications have been introduced, including perpetual calendar and moon phase indicator options.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak model update
If you want to buy an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak model, your main choices can be divided into three different generations. In the following section, you can find more information about these, and with the release of new model updates, you can better understand the recent evolution of the Royal Oak.

Royal Oak Reference 15300ST | 15300OR
Royal Oak Reference. The 15300ST was first put on the market in 2005 and has been in production until 2012. It uses the low-beat Calibre 3120 movement and is available in stainless steel and rose gold. Available in black, blue and white dial colors, the case diameter is 39 mm, which is very suitable for people with thin wrists.

From a visual point of view, one of the iconic features of this generation of Royal Oak watches is the placement of a large “AP” logo on the dial mark at 12 o’clock. This watch also uses an old-style buckle, which also has a large AP logo. At the same time, another key feature is that the model can resist water up to 50m deep.

An interesting element of the Royal Oak Ref. The 15300ST is its oscillator, with the Audemars and Piguet family crests under the AP logo. The Audemars Piguet family coat of arms consists of a castle tower, a bird and three stars, and the Piguet family coat of arms also has three stars and a horse with a sword.

Royal Oak Reference 15400ST | 15400OR
Reference in Royal Oak. The 15400ST was launched in 2012 and has been in production until 2017. The most obvious difference between this model and the previous generation is the increased case size. The diameter of Ref. 15400ST is 41 mm instead of 39 mm. The thickness of the case has also increased slightly, from 9.4 mm to 9.8 mm. Therefore, this is a good choice for buyers who have larger wrists or who just like larger watches.

In addition to the size difference, Ref. 15400ST does have similarities to its predecessor, including the choice of stainless steel or rose gold case. Both watches also use the same Calibre 3120 movement. However, because the same movement is housed in a larger case, the date window is located in a more central position.

Another way of Ref. Visually, 15400ST and Ref. 15300ST have a dial marking at 12 o’clock. This is because the “AP” logo is significantly smaller and located under the dial. This watch is also equipped with a modern folding clasp, replacing the old clasp with a larger logo.

Again, the dial color options include blue, black and white, and a slate dial is also added. For the rose gold version, Ref. 15400OR, there is a choice of black or white dials.

Royal Oak Reference 15500ST | 15500OR
The newest member of the Royal Oak series is the Royal Oak Ref. 15500ST, which was launched in 2019, which is still in production. It retains the larger 41 mm case size introduced through Ref. 15400ST and has the same modern style AP folding clasp. However, there are some significant differences, especially internal differences.

Perhaps the most important change is the introduction of Calibre 4302, an automatic movement that is also used in Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 watches. Thanks to the skeletonized movement oscillator, the movement can be displayed, and since the movement is larger than the Calibre 3120, the date display is again close to the edge of the dial, similar to the Ref. 15300ST.

Once again, you can choose stainless steel or rose gold case materials. However, it is worth noting that Ref. 15500OR only offers a black dial, while Ref. 15500ST is available in blue, black, slate and silver.

Which AP Royal Oak should you buy?
If you are looking for an elegant timepiece, or want to understand the history of the Audemars Piguet brand, then the old Ref. 15300 or 15400 models may be the ideal choice. They have a reliable movement and have been in use for more than 20 years. The smaller size of Ref. The 15300 is great for smaller wrists, while the 15400 is bigger and bolder.

On the other hand, if you are looking for the best watch, the latest Ref. 15500 is equipped with the latest updated movement and will provide you with reliable service for many years to come. In the end, whatever you choose, be sure to buy on, because we have all these watches and are ready to ship them at the best price.

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Automatic Chronograph Gold and Ceramic

A bold step into the future: Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Automatic Chronograph Gold and Ceramic Audemars Piguet’s Code 11.59 is one of those models whose true character is only revealed in the second or third eye. This also explains why the series did not start smoothly when it was launched in 2019. Too many people jumped up and did not give the newcomers a chance to introduce themselves properly. From a process point of view, at least, this is unreasonable. After all, from the three-piece case and the vertical dome sapphire crystal to the “floating” lugs, every component has been well thought out, down to the final details.

In theory, the Associated Press may really be indifferent to its acceptance, because they want to use Audemars Piguet’s code 11.59 to address new target audiences anyway. The manufacturer’s target customers are not just to associate the brand with its Royal Oak. In addition, the new series may attract Associated Press fans, who are already interested in the brand’s most iconic styles that have been on the scene since 1972. As our writer Catherine eloquently said, “The Code 11.59 will attract new customers, but also remind fans of the brand’s manufacturing capabilities. It can encourage us, as individuals, to open our eyes and minds to see if there are a lot of watches waiting. Be discovered-as long as we learn to transcend the cult classics.”

To make code 11.59 unique, it has appeared in many forms over the past few years. This includes brightly colored lacquered dials, chronographs, automatic movements, haute horlogerie complications and two-tone cases. In view of the two-tone aesthetics highlighting the exquisite case structure of the watch, the brand is now launching two new Audemars Piguet automatic-winding chronograph two-color models Code 11.59. They are available in white and rose gold, respectively, and the middle part of the case is ceramic. Although it may not be the original or only intention of AP, it brings the manufacturing process to a whole new level of complexity.

As if the production of the twelve-corner middle part of the watch case did not pose a major challenge to manufacturing, the addition of ceramics requires a more complicated production process. The exact composition of this material is kept secret and is shaped into a preliminary form using the latest generation of 5-axis CNC machine technology. During the sintering (strong heating) process, the ceramic reaches its hardness when it reaches about 1400 degrees Celsius. However, the challenge here is that during this process, the ceramic material shrinks by approximately 25%.

Next, the geometric surface is pre-polished and pre-satin-finished before being manually completed by experts. More specifically, the surface of each case is satin-finished, and each bevel is polished. This achieves a highly elegant gloss, not to mention the diversity of the entire case. In order to meet its own high standards, as one would expect from Le Brasses-based manufacturing, it introduced external assistance for the production of ceramic parts. The family-run Swiss company Bangerter specializes in the manufacture of precision parts made of high-grade ceramics, which is now also produced for AP.

The code 11.59 also has some other new features. The smoky gray dial shows a vertical satin finish. At the same time, the black chronograph sub-dial and inner bezel increase the depth of the dial, which harmonizes with the black ceramic part of the case. In contrast, the hour markers and hands match the colors of the bezel, lugs and case back. Both are 18-carat rose gold or white gold.

Interestingly, the ceramic inlay in the watch not only makes it lighter, more wear-resistant, but also more sporty. The code 11.59 is generally divided into the category of formal watches. However, it has now become a more casual work. This is also due to the new special rubber-coated calfskin strap with a textured finish that complements its laissez-faire ceramic appearance.

Usually, the logo or letter is either printed on the dial or drawn by hand. However, the Associated Press chose a much more complicated process for its code line 11.59. CEO François-Henry Bennahmias wants to write the font in gold. The 12.5 mm long “Audemars Piguet” lettering is electroplated. This is a chemical process through which layers of 24-carat gold are stacked. This will create a special 3D effect of the logo.

This process itself is not uncommon in watchmaking. However, dealing with gold is more challenging. The “A” and “U” letters of the logo are very thin, and the links between individual letters are not bigger than human hair.

About half of the 1,600 employees working at AP participated in the production of Audemars Piguet’s code 11.59. The lettering alone took about two years to develop. One supplier even opted out because of excessive waste during the development process. The project seems to be on the verge. But no one at AP considered giving up.

Studying code 11.59, people will soon notice that its borders are surprisingly thin. This is because it must adapt to the unusual shape of the sapphire crystal. The inner surface of the crystal is domed, while the outer surface is vertically downward from 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock.

The sapphire crystal is designed to allow the dial to have the best readability from all angles. The results are truly amazing, as you can see when you check the watch in person. However, the thin bezel and the oversized sapphire crystal do make the watch look larger on the wrist (41 mm).

A completely new manufacturing process must also be developed for the lugs. The upper lug is welded to the ultra-thin bezel. At the same time, the lower part is lightly leaning against the edge of the case, thereby creating a floating effect. At the same time, the lugs are also hollow. This doubles the difficulty for them to withstand any force acting on them. As mentioned earlier, whether you find this aesthetically pleasing or not, it demonstrates a certain degree of experimentation, not to mention the spirit of innovation, which has been characteristic of AP since its establishment in 1875.

AP designed a new manufacturing movement for Code 11.59 in the Audemars Piguet series. Powering the chronograph (including two new models) is the internal 4401 movement. This integrated chronograph with a column wheel mechanism and flyback function allows the wearer to restart the chronograph without first stopping and resetting it. best replica

In addition, the 32mm movement uses a patented zero-return mechanism. This ensures that each counter pointer can be reset to zero seamlessly. The movement also integrates a vertical clutch system to prevent the hands from jumping when the chronograph starts and stops. Finally, the sapphire crystal back cover displays many of the 367 parts, including their exquisite surface treatments. In addition to the 22-carat rose gold oscillating weight, the movement also displays Geneva stripes, characteristic tires, pearl patterns, sun pattern brushed and polished bevels.

Code 11.59 used to be an obviously scary baby, now it is a self-confident and mature watch, so that it is now hard to imagine AP without it. This is impressive given the two-year tendering history in the company’s 146-year history. The original goal of Bennahmias was to allocate only 20% of the current annual production to Code 11.59. This means that, assuming that production does increase to the goal of 50,000 pieces, approximately 10,000 Code 11.59 watches will be produced every year by 2022. However, the company has not confirmed these goals.

The use of black ceramic is very suitable for rose gold and platinum models. At the same time, the complex multi-component watch case makes the extraordinary watch case further the focus of attention. It also makes Code 11.59 more in line with Bennahmias’ vision of “watches for all occasions”. It’s time for the last few reviewers to accept this watch-because it is likely to stay. best replica watch site

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak frosted gold automatic winding 34 mm

The frosted white gold and glacial light blue dial bring a cool touch to the 34mm Royal Oak.

Audemars Piguet has expanded its frosted Royal Oak collection with a new 34 mm model that is shining with a finely crafted white gold case and a fresh light blue dial. Five years ago, Audemars Piguet released a matte gold version of the iconic Royal Oak; not the iconic Royal Oak designed by Gérald Genta in 1972, but the same iconic Royal Oak redesigned for women by Jacqueline Dimier in 1976 .

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the women’s watch in 2016, the 33 mm (quartz) and 37 mm (mechanical self-winding) Royal Oak watches are equipped with flashing designs created by Florentine jewelry designer Carolina Bucci (Carolina Bucci). Bright hammered gold case. Although the thought of holding a hammer on a watch may make you dizzy, Carolina Bucci is the fourth-generation jeweler of the Florentine Bucci jewelry dynasty, and is in the golden hammer technique Dominate. Using diamond tools to create tiny dents in the metal results in a discreet flash that is never flashy. The crystal clear frosted surface, like a watch just taken out of the refrigerator, is not only beautiful, but also very wear-resistant and scratch-resistant.

As all our readers know, Gérald Genta’s 1972 Royal Oak steel watch-with its eye-catching octagonal bezel, one-piece bracelet, exposed screws, tapestry dial and slightly industrial style- -Shocked the watch industry. As a pioneer of the luxury sports watch genre, Royal Oak was initially touted as a watch with a “steel body and gold heart”. Although it is not the first sports watch on the market-Rolex has been providing powerful tool watches for decades-but the Royal Oak is the first luxury sports watch on the market. A bold statement went against the common belief that the metal of the watch determines its value. The Royal Oak proved that it is not the metal, but the design and courage of the movement that make it unique.

The combination of hammered bracelet and case in 2016, like everything related to Royal Oak, was bold but immediately won the hearts of male and female RO fans. The frosted Royal Oak is very popular. Since its launch in 2016, it has launched double balance wheel skeletonized 41mm and 37mm gold models, 41mm white gold chronographs with purple dials, and less gorgeous white gold and dark silver dials with special features. A new generation of automatic flyback movement designed for the Code 11.59 series.

Ice, ice baby
This year, Audemars Piguet cheap launched a new 34 mm white gold watch with a gorgeous light blue dial to expand its frosted collection. Although this watch marked the first appearance of the Frosted RO 34mm model, the “normal” 34mm RO appeared last year, with an outsourcing ultra-thin automatic movement with a black ceramic case, or a choice of stainless steel and rose gold models. All 34 mm models have the same case size and height, and are water-resistant to 50 meters.

The latest Royal Oak frosted gold automatic movement uses a 34 mm white gold case with an ultra-thin height of only 8.8 mm. The shimmering hammered surface (case and integrated bracelet) is reminiscent of the texture of diamond dust, with the polished octagonal bevel of the bezel, the eight screws on the bezel, the outer side of the crown and the middle case, and the composition The links of the one-piece bracelet contrast sharply.

The light blue PVD ​​coated “Grande Tapisserie” pattern dial is combined with the matte gold elements of the case and the white gold hour markers, which is very attractive. If you look closely, you will notice that the area under the raised cushion on the Grand Tapisserie (waffle) pattern is also slightly grainy, matching the surface area of ​​the hammered gold case. Like all other Royal Oak models with a date window, the background matches the dial color to make it as unobtrusive as possible. In this case, the background of the date is light blue and the numbers are black. Once again, the applied platinum hour markers and hands are filled with a strip of luminous coating. AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK FROSTED GOLD SELFWINDING 34MM

Through the sapphire crystal back cover, you can see AP’s 5800 automatic winding movement. The 5800 movement is not produced in-house by AP, but by Vaucher, a movement manufacturer known for its high-end movements. This slender automatic movement (23.3 mm x 3.9 mm) is the natural choice for the 34 mm Royal Oak, because the 3120 movement is too large. The 5800 movement beats at a speed of 28,800vph and also provides a considerable 50-hour power reserve. The splint is decorated with Geneva stripes. The rotor was specially developed for this 34 mm rose gold version, with a central frosted, brushed surface and a polished bevel.

Audemars Piguet new watches

Audemars Piguet launches new watches, from Royal Oak to self-winding chronograph

Including the new platinum Royal Oak “Jumbo” with a striking green dial.

Sitting on a sofa in a stylish lounge, overlooking the snow-capped mountains outside Audemars Piguet’s manufacturing plant in Le Brassus, Switzerland, CEO François François -Henry Bennahmias) and complication supervisor Michael Friedman (Michael Friedman) spent two hours showing that 2021 is more coming in the fall). They have a lot of mechanical marvels to show, but they also emphasized the company’s new partnership with Marvel Comics. Although there is no news about what the new joint venture will bring, it is said that it was inspired by Bennahmias’ 11-year friendship with actor Don Cheadle, who played the War Machine in the Avengers film series. But when asked who his favorite character in the comic empire was, Ben Namias told reporters present that he felt that his personality was more in line with the Hulk.

From the perspective of the new series, he kept the paleness and bluff of superheroes in mind when designing. The big news is the launch of the time and date-only Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin platinum sunburst green dial, replacing the brand’s typical waffle pattern tapestry dial. Tourbillon and Chronograph models also launched four other green Royal Oaks with tapestry dials. The sturdy Royal Oak for divers and the more bulky Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Tourbillon with a flyback chronograph will also be offered, as well as the Diamond and Pure Gold versions of the Royal Oak.

However, although the Royal Oak continues to be the star of Audemars Piguet, the company is still optimistic about the Code 11.59 series, launching two new chronographs with ceramic middle cases.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Depth diving: original Olympic Games piglet royal oak offshore and its re-release

When Royal Oak is launched in 1972, the observation world does not really understand it. This is a bold design and expensive luxury watches, but it is also a sports watch made of stainless steel. Today may not be strange, but later, it is almost unheard. It is only suitable for the royal oak near the sea, which was initially considered to respect the royal oak and misunderstand its launch. Like its ancestors, the sea finally discovered its foundation and became one of the most popular watches of the ear. Here, we have two references, the original Royal Oak Sea References 25721st.00001 from 1993 and its modern re-issue opponents, reference 46237st.oo.1000st.01, this is launched in 2018 of. They are together, they help tell the story offshore and why this is an important part of the Audemars Piguet lineup.

I will not completely restore the history of royal oak, because this story is told and reproduced. If you want to speed up the speed. However, the royal oak is offshore is, as you said, closely related to the original Royal Oak. Therefore, it is impossible to discuss offshore without discussing the original situation. The overall driving force to create royal oak offshore is the 20th anniversary of celebrating Royal Oak. Designer Emmanuel Gueit’s mission is responsible for the new iteration of Rehabilience Genta design and proposes a larger, a warm watch version.

He retains the original core design characteristics, such as the exquisite octagonal baffle and Tapisserie dial, but retest the robustness of the watch to it “Beast”. There is now a rounded, beet bracelet, a large rubber gasket under the baffle, and the rubber crown and timer promoters have contributed to the aquatic and positive atmosphere of the swiss watches brands. This first-generation sea has a thickness of 42mm, a thickness of 14 mm, which is undoubtedly greater than the original – this is 7 mm of 39mm – but it will not exceed the modern watch, and the size of the size will definitely meet the trend of the time, bulk not only Just look.

The original royal oak always means a luxury sports table, but pays more attention to luxury goods rather than this movement. The offshore increases the water resistance to 100 meters, increasing some magnetoresistance and timecutical table complications. The added size is used to make the situation more durable, and the internal AP caliber 2126/2840 requires more space because it is based on JLC-based 888 and adds the Dubois-DEPLAZ timer module. Then, it is considered that the motion is also used for the soft iron inner cage of the magnetoresistance, and the dial must be expanded to include the rhythm scale on the outer flange. All of this will greatly increase the size of the watch, so all of these can easily prove its increased ratio. Personally, personally, the growth of quality is worth increasing durability and functionality. I don’t feel comfortable with standard royal oak surf, but I like it. Baby children do not have necessary, I think this is one of the main values.

However, like the original Royal Oak, this early offshore has accepted a lot of criticism. Even Gerald gentlemen did even disclose the watch, and I thought it had destroyed his original design. Cruel. However, although traditional watch fans criticize this new design, it slowly grasped new demographics and gave an Audemars Piguet brand. Athletes, movie stars and other trend and other people like the modern athletes of royal oak. Because of this, it should be a souvenir eventually become more memorable.

This reference 25721st.O.1000ST.01 is a very early and mouth-watering D series example. In terms of their perfect observations, the first few sea has experienced a variety of updates, resulting in a 1993 watch, rather than the 20th anniversary of 1992. As you said, this D series model has a lot of Patina from the ’90s, because the D series uses a slightly different, more unstable blue paint, now give us this unique purple tones, a bit of brass display . Another unique characteristic of the D series is that the iconic smaste noodles are completed, meaning that the squares on the dial are getting smaller and smaller, and I think, more elegant aesthetics. The D series watches are especially collected due to these aesthetics, but it is also because they are the former 000 royal Royal Oak European oak.

This early sea has become a unique work of piglets. This is a starting point that can change the trajectory of the brand again and lead to one of the most popular luxury brands in the past 30 years. Now, Audemars Piguet has more than 40 different maritime models in their queue, and has various complications and materials. This model has become an innovative breeding basis, and allows the brand to use many other traditional formulas that have been far away – Royal Oak Concepts may not exist, no offshore. Like the original royal oak, the offshore, not only keep the brand, but also extend to the future. But despite continuous innovation, the piglet pigs did not forget where they came from.

2018 Audemars Piguet restarted the original Royal Oak in all glory, but has modern improvements. With so many originals look very different than they leave the factory, this refers to the 26237st.oo.1000st.01 allows lovers to be afraid of fear, and enjoy the latest design of the watchmakes. Reference. Re-released offshore has no original production issues, and has new sports techniques to start.

The new caliber 3126/3840 is completely in the automatic winding movement of the home, the power reserve is 5 hours, with a total of 50 hours – and 21 jewels, not the caliber used in the original sea. In aesthetics, this is a perfect first overseas entertainment, its ornate blue dial and beautiful light reflection work. With the overtime development of the Royal Oak Sea, this once loud and sturdy design seems to be more conservative. I am not seeing some more extreme offshore design today, but this re-issuance is the point I can backward. I think it completes the original goal of Audemars Piguet, which improves royal oak, while maintaining the best quality and providing higher functionality and durability. This is a watch that “has your cake and eat it”.

See this original offshore side by side and take a resended peer is a watchmaker dream. The original design and production process behind the story is the performance of the current interesting map, and now, the example shows that despite the recent recent in the 1990s, after that, the players are really long. This will make a great two watch collection for maritime fans. Retro makes a bold but elegant formal watch, and there is anything that modern wearer is ready. These two watches tell one of the most important stories in Audemars Piguet history. Due to any watch of the original Royal Oak, there is any fake watch for a well-known piglet. If history is any indication, it will continue to have a lasting legacy, which will encourage the next breakthrough watch from one of the world’s greatest observing manufacturers.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak automatic winding 34 mm black ceramic

The first female-oriented non-complex ceramic Royal Oak.

In addition to the 41 mm white frosted gold Royal Oak Chronograph we just showed you, Audemars Piguet also released another model today, which may be more important than you think. In fact, the Associated Press has just launched a new black ceramic Royal Oak in its series… You might say that this is not the brand’s first watch, but in fact, this watch is the first A black ceramic watch without high-end complications, in a feminine size. This new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak self-winding 34 mm black ceramic watch can actually open the door to more such all-ceramic models with time and date in the future (or at least, this is what we hope).

The all-black ceramic Royal Oak was first launched in early 2017 with the model number 26579CE. This is a very popular watch that combines an ultra-thin perpetual calendar movement with an RO case and bracelet made entirely of black ceramic. Despite the use of this technical material, this watch retains everything it is famous for, including the combination of brushed and polished surfaces, sharp angles and dimensions. Of course, Audemars Piguet used ceramics in the past, but the important thing here is that the bracelet is also made of this lightweight and durable material. As Xavier explained when he got the watch, this is a real technical challenge, and the results are absolutely stunning.

The all-ceramic Royal Oak was later presented in various iterations, such as the all-white perpetual calendar, the stunning skeleton perpetual calendar, the skeletonized tourbillon chronograph, the ultra-thin tourbillon, and most recently the skeletonized double balance wheel. We only talk about exclusive, high-end and complex watches. But as of now, the all-ceramic Royal Oak also has classic chronographs, however, for now, women will have the first opportunity to enjoy this.

This new 34mm black ceramic version from Royal Oak is based on the recently launched version, which we covered in this article. With a diameter of 34 mm and a very reasonable height of 8.8 mm, this version already includes watches of 44, 41, 39, 38, 37 and 33 mm. You may argue about the meaning of having 33mm and 34mm watches, but there is a very important difference between the two watches, because the new model also introduces an automatic movement, making products for women more interesting than ever .

This watch is available in stainless steel, rose gold and two-tone case, with or without diamonds. It is now available in AP exquisite black ceramic configuration. This is the first time and date model (understand, no complexity, There is no skeleton movement, no double balance wheel), which is also the first female version. Except for the new materials that can be seen everywhere on the case, except for the back cover, the watch made of titanium is the same as the steel watch in all aspects, with the vertical drawing plane and the polished bevel on the edge of the case, the bezel and the bracelet.

One more small detail… The screws on the bezel are unusually made of 18k rose gold, not 18k white gold like most Royal Oak models. In order to continue the all-black scheme, the Grande Tapisserie dial is black, with rose gold markers, logos and hands to match the screws on the bezel. The date wheel is also black. fake watches for sale

Under the sapphire caseback is Calibre 5800, which is not produced in-house, but by the high-end movement manufacturer Vaucher. Display hours, minutes, seconds and date, power reserve up to 50 hours, dimensions of 23.30 mm x 3.9 mm, vibration frequency of 28,800vph/4Hz, and is decorated with exquisite Geneva stripes, polished bevels and gold rotors.

Thought, for the future…
Although I personally don’t have much interest in this watch-don’t get me wrong, it looks great, but obviously too small for my wrist-its display opens up a bit and I think it has been closed until now Door. For me, the all-ceramic Royal Oak is an out-of-reach watch, and this concept is reserved for the most unique movement produced by Audemars Piguet. But today, the brand indicated that it is willing to let the all-ceramic case/bracelet find its place in a more classic series…

Now that we know, we can only dream of seeing an alternative to the 15202, a watch that will be launched next year, with this ceramic case/bracelet configuration. Imagine that a black ceramic Royal Oak Treasure is ultra-thin… how desirable is that?

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak self-winding 34 mm black ceramic watch (No. 77350CE.OO.1266CE.01) was released as part of the permanent collection. Nevertheless, despite the unlimited number, we know that Audemars Piguet’s all-ceramic watches are produced very low.

Experience AP’s new Black Panther watch for yourself

Experience AP’s new Black Panther watch for yourself

Here it is. In the past few weeks, we have heard rumors about the mysterious collaboration between Audemars Piguet and Marvel. Watches The Internet has always been flooded with theories about watches like this. We saw some interesting speculations (even models) of Captain America or Iron Man watches. My money was spent on Thor, and my long golden hair fell from the side of the box shaped like a hammer. But we are all very wrong.

Audemars Piguet unveiled today-Royal Oak Concept Black Panther Flying Tourbillon (from Wakanda’s Vibranium-rich mine), this is the first tourbillon to continue to cooperate with Marvel (so keep the theory smooth) . The announcement was made at a star-studded event in Los Angeles hosted by Kevin Hart, which included the likes of Serena Williams and LeBron James. It even auctioned off a unique platinum black panther variant at an amazing price, 100% of which went to charity organizations to help poor young people.

From the gray, black and purple accents to the literal sculpture of the superhero of the same name on the dial, all the black panther traps are implanted in the watch. This watch is inspired by the Black Panther-it is the Black Panther.

Watches and comics are not obvious companions, but fans have amazing things in common. Both communities may be obsessed in the best and worst ways. The comic book guy on “The Simpsons” could have easily become a “Mechanical Watchman”. Today, these two worlds collide. Loyalists on both sides may ask themselves: “What is this?”

Frankly speaking, your idea of ​​AP Marvel cheap replica watches is okay, or you are not satisfied. If you are not, then nothing will change your mind-no matter how well executed. This is too bad in a way. Because this watch does perform very well.

The characters are carved into three dimensions from platinum, with shocking details. You can see his muscles, his suit style, his smooth shoulders and boots. Look again, you will keep seeing his eyeballs. That’s a student, folks.

The Associated Press’s head of complexity, Michael Friedman, told before the release: “This is indeed the make-or-break moment for the watch.” “Fans in the comics industry are so detail-oriented.”

There is no doubt that AP can make incredible Black Panther watches. The question is whether AP should. Is it weird for an August Swiss manufacturer to produce six-figure watches based on a comic book about black liberation and anti-imperialistism? I mean, yes. It’s kind of weird. However, when you understand the context, it becomes less weird.ap replica watches

First of all, this is not about using huge amounts of cash to take advantage of King T’Challa himself, Chadwick Boseman, who recently passed away unfortunately, who died of cancer last year. Watches (especially watches of this level) require years of planning and research and development. This particular watch is not even based on the 2018 “Black Panther” movie, but a comic book of the character. This watch was conceived before the movie became a landmark cultural event, and the global box office reached 1.3 billion US dollars. .

Second, watches have a long tradition of celebrating animated characters. The Associated Press said it was inspired by the classic Mickey Mouse watch design-his arm represents the hours and minutes, and the hands represent the time. In the 1980s, Gerald Genta (famous design AP Royal Oak) was inspired by young people to make his own Mickey watch. For today’s buyers, Marvel comics (and Marvel movies) are the iconic representatives of M-I-C-K-E-Y to the previous generation of products.

If you plan to make a modern example of a character watch and want to enhance the art form, then the AP Royal Oak Concept series is the ideal canvas. The outline of the watch starts with platinum on the CNC machine. It is then laser engraved to show texture and patterns, and then hand engraved to show the character’s paws, eyes, facial features and rippling muscles. (It takes four engravers and four painters to make all 250 watches.) Finally, it is hand-painted, which is the reason for the intensity in the eyes.

Friedman said: “It is a real challenge to make a still life feel moving.” “We are talking about sculpture-miniature sculpture.”

The finished product is much more complicated than paying tribute to the Panthers. The Associated Press could have made a top luxury replica watches with the color of the character and named it “One Day”. Instead, the brand continued all the hard work described above-and created a new 42mm case. You don’t have to like comic books to appreciate the superb craftsmanship, and on many levels, this is what this watch represents.

The purple rubber strap plays a good role on the slanted purple inner bezel. The case is not made of Vibranium (not many chances if you want to ask), but it is made of another kind of titanium. It is sandblasted with satin-brushed titanium inserts. The dial is hollowed out and decorated with cracked finishes, further highlighting the Black Panther pattern. There are sports board finishes on the front and back. The watch uses a manually wound 2965 movement and AP’s latest generation flying tourbillon made in 2018. The fascinating thing is that although the position between the panther’s legs will definitely attract people’s attention. You have to put the tourbillon somewhere, but wow.

When “Black Panther” debuted in Fantastic Four #52, I doubted whether Stan Lee or Jack Kirby (Marvel’s OG) ever thought that their characters would appear here. Again, you can say the same thing to Jules Audemars and Edward Piguet, who certainly did not see this when they started working in 1875. Isn’t it refreshing to see that both manga and watches have reached their limits? The only way forward is through experimentation. In addition, watches and comics are our pursuit of pure escapism. Anyone who is dissatisfied with the comic sheet ignores this.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Black Panther Flying Tourbillon. 42mm sandblasted titanium case with brushed titanium inserts. Black ceramic bezel and crown, sapphire crystal and back cover, water resistance to 50m. The dial has hand-painted white gold 3D Panther characters, white gold hour markers with black PVD coating, purple inner ring, and white gold Royal Oak hands with luminous coating. Hand-wound calibre 2965 with a frequency of 3 Hz and a power reserve of 72 hours. Flying tourbillon, hour and minute hands.
