This classic sports fashion watch now has a series of beautiful green dials.
Traditionally, March is an exciting month for watch lovers. In the past, we would see all the novelties from Baselworld. Although the community still cannot gather in the usual way, it is gratifying that the brand is still advancing their lineup.
More importantly, 2021 feels more exciting than usual. We have seen exciting updates from big brands (such as Zenith Chronomaster Revival A385 and Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36) and fanatical favorites (such as DOXA SUB 300 Carbon Fiber COSC). Now, Audemars Piguet has added several new emerald green dials to its Royal Oak collection.
Audemars Piguet has just released several new Royal Oak models with green dials. The products released this time include the 950 platinum Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin model, smoky green dial with sunburst pattern, limited edition Royal Oak automatic winding chronograph with 18 carat gold case and green “Grande Tapisserie” plaid dial . Finally, the manufacturer also displayed three new rose gold or titanium self-winding flying tourbillon models, all of which have a green dial.
One of the most exciting developments in watchmaking right now is that brands seem to be listening to buyers. This is why we have seen so many reimaginations of iconic timepieces like the Royal Oak. Enthusiasts want a high-performance watch, but still stand out from the rest of their collection.
As early as the 1970s, Audemars Piguet first adopted jewel-toned dials in brown, green and blue tones. These lively and expressive dials are only popular in auctions and secondary markets. It is very important to make them come back. In addition, we can all indulge in a little color therapy these days.
Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin
These emerald-themed Royal Oaks meet all requirements in many other ways. The smoky green sunburst dial of “Jumbo” Extra-Thin is composed of a 950 platinum case and bracelet, marking the first appearance of this configuration in the 15202 series. It may be called “Jumbo”, but it has a diameter of 39 mm, a thickness of 8.10 mm, and an ultra-thin profile.
In addition, the green dial highlights the white gold three-dimensional hour markers, and the iconic Royal Oak hands are treated with a luminous coating, making them clear and easy to read in dim light. The Audemars Piguet logo is located below 12 o’clock, and the initials of AP are located at 6 o’clock, as stipulated by the “Jumbo” convention.
The heart of the watch is the self-winding Manufacture Calibre 2121 with a 22-carat gold oscillating weight. Functions include hours, minutes, and dates.
Royal Oak Automatic Chronograph
Audemars Piguet also updated a new color scheme for the Royal Oak Automatic Chronograph, with a gorgeous green “Grande Tapisserie” pattern and an 18-carat gold case. This face offers a lot of textures to talk about, such as three snail-shaped counters with alternating brushed surfaces and polished accents. But the most interesting texture effect is how the raised squares of the tapestry dial enrich the green finish. The 18-carat gold case also magnifies this luster effect.
This Royal Oak watch uses a 41 mm case, is equipped with a self-made 2385 self-winding movement, and is equipped with an 18-carat gold oscillating weight. In addition to the chronograph function, the movement can also indicate hours, minutes, small seconds and date.
The solid bottom cover is engraved with the words “Limited Edition”. These details do not reshape the Royal Oak automatic winding chronograph, but reshape the way we look at luxury goods.
Finally, in addition to the gold bracelet and AP folding clasp, the watch also comes with two additional straps-green calfskin and green rubber-so you can wear it in almost any situation.
Royal Oak Self-winding Flying Tourbillon
Fans also like the good stories that go with their timepieces. These three new limited edition Royal Oak Automatic Flying Tourbillon watches show the history of the brand’s high-end watch craftsmen through the brand’s unique hand modification and gem setting techniques.
Each iteration uses a 41mm case with a green plaid dial arranged in a sunburst pattern.
The first watch features an 18-carat pink gold case with hour markers and hands.
The third version has a lightweight titanium case and an 18-carat white gold bezel with a 2.41-carat rectangular-cut emerald. Each of these 32 gems was cut, faceted and set by hand. In addition, the emerald green tone enriches the green tone of the tapestry dial, presenting an unparalleled light and shadow effect.
Both titanium watches use white gold three-dimensional hour markers and Royal Oak hands with luminous coating, and are matched with a titanium bracelet.
All three iterations of the Royal Oak self-winding flying tourbillon are equipped with the in-house calibre 2950, which is Audemars Piguet’s latest generation flying tourbillon. Unlike the traditional tourbillon, this mechanism dispenses with the upper bridge in order to better observe the escapement, adjustment mechanism and frame during operation.
With a total diameter of 30.90 mm and a thickness of 6.24 mm, this movement has injected a lot of power into a small and delicate timepiece: a minimum guaranteed power reserve of 65 hours and a vibration frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations/hour).
