Audemars Piguet Launches Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Purple Diamond Watch

Since its inception in the 1980s, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch has continued to evolve, developing a variety of models. Today, the Maison combines precious materials and bold colors with a new boutique-exclusive edition (26598BC.ZZ.1220BC.01). The new watch features a 41 mm 18K white gold case with a purple “Grande Tapisserie” dial and a baguette-cut diamond-set bezel.

The new watch is 41 mm in diameter and 9.5 mm thick. The case is made of 18K white gold and is brushed and polished. It is equipped with an anti-glare sapphire crystal mirror, a screw-in crown and a see-through case back, and has a water resistance of 20 meters. The 18K white gold bezel is fixed with eight hexagonal screws, which is the signature feature of the Royal Oak series. The top surface is inlaid with 32 baguette-cut diamonds, showing luxury.

The purple dial is engraved with “Grande Tapisserie” large grid decoration, with sub-dials of the same tone, as well as 18K white gold three-dimensional hour markers and Royal Oak hands. 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock are respectively equipped with date, moon phase, week and month and leap year displays, with a balanced layout and clear and easy to read. A central hand with a triangular arrow combines with numerals on the outer edge to indicate the current week number. If it is continuously wound, the perpetual calendar function does not require manual correction until 2100.

Through the see-through case back, you can appreciate the built-in Caliber 5134 movement. The movement is assembled from 374 parts, only 4.3mm thick, contains 38 jewels, has a vibration frequency of 19,800 vibrations per hour (2.75 Hz), is equipped with a 22K gold skeleton rotor, and can provide a 40-hour power reserve. At the same time, the Caliber 5134 movement is also decorated with exquisite Geneva patterns and fish scale patterns.

The watch comes with an 18K white gold bracelet with an AP folding clasp. Additionally, it comes with a black rubber strap and a purple rubber strap.

The Royal Oak, the first of its kind in luxury sports watches, turns 50 this year, and for that reason alone, it deserves a spot on this list. It remains one of the most powerful designs in watchmaking history, penned by the late Gerald Genta in 1972. We all wonder what happens when AP announces that the 15202 will be discontinued. Well, it turns out that the new Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202ST is pretty faithful to its origins. The biggest change is the introduction of a new movement (with a special rotor only on its anniversary). The exterior changes are very subtle, with fine exterior touches here and there. But most importantly, it’s still what a Royal Oak should be.

39 mm stainless steel case, octagonal bezel – “Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50” petite checkered dial – white gold applied indexes and hands – AP Caliber 7121, self-winding – special 50 year rotor only available in 2022 – integrated stainless steel Bracelet with folding clasp – reference 16202ST.OO.1240ST.01

Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth

As the main sponsor of the Les Voiles De St Barth Regatta, Richard Mille presents the limited edition RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth. As the event cannot be held this year, the brand reiterates its commitment and intends to donate all proceeds from the sale of RM 60-01 to the St Barth’s initiative. The watch has a 50mm case made of titanium and carbon TPT. It also features a flyback chronograph and annual calendar. With its rotating bezel, this watch can also be used as a compass.

Shell and materials of RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth
Richard Mille opted for a round case measuring 50 x 16.33 mm. It consists of four separate parts, including long titanium lugs. The middle section is also made of titanium, but with a carbon TPT insert. Additionally, 46 titanium screws hold the case together. Richard Mille can also lock the two chronograph pushers by turning the black ring on the crown. However, the UTC button used to increment the second time zone pointer is not affected by this.

The case also has a rotating bezel made of titanium and carbon TPT with four cardinal points, a 360° measuring disc and a 24-hour scale. Together with the red UTC hand, sailors can orient themselves like a compass. First, the red hand is aligned with the sun. Then turn the bezel so that the hands correspond to the current hour in local time. The correct north, east, west and south directions are now displayed to the wearer.

The dial of the Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth is made of sapphire crystal, thus providing a view of the mechanism. Additionally, the manufacturer has placed a turquoise-colored flange with dotted indexes around the dial. Two large hands with luminous material indicate the time. There is also a small seconds hand with a yellow hand at 3 o’clock. The fake watches for sale has an annual calendar that distinguishes 30-day and 31-day months. To this end, there is an extra-large date window at 12 o’clock, and the current month is displayed between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock.

The time measurement of the flyback chronograph is displayed on the countdown subdial at 9 o’clock. Here, the hands are replaced by a disc that can be used to read the elapsed minutes and the remaining time of the hour. In addition, there is a 24-hour totalizer at 6 o’clock.

Movement RMAC2
The Manufacur movement RMAC2 inside the Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. It also offers a 55-hour power reserve provided by two barrels. The winding rotor has a system that adjusts its geometry according to the wearer’s activity level. Watchmakers believe this will optimize the performance of the winding mechanism. In addition, Richard Mille uses a free spring balance with screws. The baseplate, bridge and balance cock are all made of PVD-coated grade 5 titanium, making the mechanism more stable.

The Richard Mille RM 60-01 Les Voiles De St Barth comes with a rubber strap with a pin buckle.

The Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is the Gen3 connected watch in the Hublot collection, the highest performing and exciting Big Bang e to date. The newly designed dedicated football app features a larger, improved HD screen where every moment of the game will be captured.

From the countdown to the most anticipated moment of the World Cup, the FIFA World Cup™ final, Hublot will be at the heart of the action. Ahead of the game, the Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will enter a countdown mode, recording the days leading up to the first match between Qatar and Ecuador on November 20. Then, 15 minutes before each game, the watch will provide team line-up and player information, so the wearer can enjoy the details from the comfort of their wrist.

When a match begins, the watch will automatically enter “match mode” and activate “timeline”, a feature built specifically for this watch that will help fans capture the most memorable and important moments in football.

Here’s how it works: On the outer edge of the dial there will be a five-part scale indicating the first and second half, the extra time allowed for each half, and the half time. If a goal is scored, the watch will display an animation of the match event mentioning the player’s name, and the football symbol will appear on the scale at the appropriate minute mark. The same thing happens if there is a yellow card, a red card or a penalty.

If the game goes beyond normal time, the watch display will automatically switch to overtime mode and then to penalty shootout mode again to prevent the game from going into a penalty shootout. Each penalty is recorded by a football with a green or red outline to indicate whether the attempt was successful or not. The final “During Game Animation” shows when the game is over, and the final score.

At any time during the race, the wearer can replay these events by scrolling across the dial using the watch’s crown. After five seconds of inactivity, the watch automatically switches to a “low power mode” to save battery power. This legible, ergonomic, great interaction is unique to Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

In metal, the Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is a perfect blend of fine watchmaking and high-end electronics. The imposing and beautifully designed 44mm case is crafted in micro-blasted polished black ceramic and black titanium, echoing Hublot’s iconic mechanical watch, the Big Bang.

However, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 4100 processor powered by the latest version of Wear OS by Google™ (Wear OS 3) replaces the most advanced watchmaking technology. A dedicated app tailored for the watch provides the wearer with a seamless experience worthy of one of the most exclusive watch brands in the world. The watch’s impressive hardware specs include an accelerometer, gyroscope, microphone, speaker, GPS, and a heart rate monitor. It also comes with a full suite of pre-installed apps that allow the wearer to stay connected and track activity, health, and more. Wearers can discover more great apps through Google Play on the watch.

It also promises all-day battery life and a two-hour charge from empty to full. Bluetooth 5.0 connects it to a variety of devices and accessories. Compatible with Android and iOS, the watch is water resistant up to 3 ATM.

The Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will also be highly personalised, with dozens of dialing options available through the accompanying smartphone app. The official version features a burgundy dial and black and burgundy-lined rubber strap, inspired by the flag colors of Qatar, the host country of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Fans can also choose from the 32 participating countries in their own coloured dial and strap designs. This is a watch designed for fashion-conscious, active, football-loving people!
