Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Concept series watches show the futuristic and experimental side of the iconic Royal Oak. Soon after, we looked at the new sandblasted style of the Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon GMT, and now, the brand has launched a new special product, the Royal Oak Concept Frosted Gold Flying Tourbillon. The multi-layered dial of this new watch is housed in a hammered platinum or red gold case.
The surface of the frosted golden flying tourbillon presents a beautiful blue, with a sunburst appearance, with a sense of depth, reminiscent of the image of an amphitheater. To produce this effect, the circumference of several oval-shaped layers is reduced from top to bottom, and they are stacked on top of each other.
However, this is an amphitheater without a stage and performers. In this case, it was simulated by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, with 19 diamonds inlaid. In order to allow the wearer to appreciate the beauty of this dial, the AP logo is located below the 12th row in the second row of the top, and a moderately sized semi-hollow cell phone is used to read the time, thus keeping the layout to a minimum.
Although the dial of this watch is amazing, the design of the case is also exquisite and can be used as a complement to the dial. The case is made of pure white gold/red gold and has a diameter of 38.5 mm, which is very easy to manage, which means that the watch should be able to sit comfortably on various wrists. Although the size seems appropriate, the finishing of the case adds a lot of visual effects to this watch. The tops of the bezel and lugs are uniquely frosted and hammered, the sides of the case are finely brushed, and the sides of the bezel are polished.
Turn the watch over to enjoy the wide view of the internal movement 2964 through the screwed sapphire caseback. The manual winding movement 2964 has a working frequency of 3Hz and can provide a healthy power reserve of approximately 72 hours. On the front of the decoration, all bridges of the watch are frosted and have the same oval pattern as the watch surface.
The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept frosted gold flying tourbillon will be attached to the blue alligator leather strap.
A classic sports watch will be updated with colored ceramics.
When I closed my eyes and thought about “pure summer watches”, I thought of some models of Royal Oak Offshore. Offshore is one of the most successful sequels of classic watches proposed by Swiss high-end Discount fake watches manufacturers. The many changes that Royal Oak Offshore has undergone in the past 27 years have proven its widespread acceptance, which is no easy feat for designs that attempt to expand on an almost acclaimed classic. Today, we have three new marine self-winding chronographs that weave colored ceramics into their designs.
Although they are each housed in a 44 mm black ceramic case, they are different from there. The example above contains a colorful ceramic bezel, chronograph buttons and crown. The shield that protects the push rod is made of titanium. The third (pictured below) replaces some colorful ceramic accessories with 18-carat rose gold, and is equipped with a chronograph button and a black ceramic crown. In all models, the applied hour markers representing the 44mm variation of the Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Chronograph have been replaced by large and clear numbers to recall some 42mm offshore chronographs.
The new Offshores are equipped with the familiar AP Cal. The automatic chronograph movement 3126/3840 provides a power reserve of 50 hours and runs at AP’s standard rate of 21,600 vph or 3 Hz. This is an AP internal automatic movement equipped with a timer module from Dubois Depraz.
All three new versions of the Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Chronograph feature a textured rubber strap that matches the case. As you can see in the photo above, the patterned texture continues to appear on the side of the strap. They will be exclusively available in AP boutiques around the world.
These are large tables of 44mm x 14.4mm, but the rugged aesthetics work well and are frankly part of the packaging purchased by Royal Oak Offshore customers. After all, the first Royal Oak offshore watch was 42 mm long, which set the tone for the trend of oversized watches, which will be defined in the second half of the 1990s and Aughts. It was designed from the beginning as a sturdy, oversized chronograph.
The use of bright colors is often found at sea. Although white or black ceramics may make you look like ceramic eternals on a traditional Royal Oak, the blue and green borders and buttons we see here make you feel more natural.
The decoration details of the ceramic bezel seem to be as good as the decoration on the gold bezel, just like the AP ceramic piece I expected. For AP or Offshore, this material is nothing new, but these new black ceramics with colorful decorations look very fresh. In all three new versions of Offshore Chrono, the colors are bright, but not so loud that I can only entrust them to summer wear. They are big, they are bold, and may not be suitable for everyone. But if I tell you that I think these best replica watches are not cool, then I will lie.
