Audemars Piguet reveals two Royal Oaks in Frosted Gold

Published / by nmmcom

Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer AAA Audemars Piguet Replica has unveiled two new versions of the Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph in 41 mm.

Executed in a choice of 18-carat white or yellow gold, the case and bracelet elegantly shimmer with Frosted Gold. Each model is enhanced by a Grande Tapisserie dial matched to the case’s colour and contrasted with black counters. Lastly, each timepiece is equipped with the manufacture’s latest generation flyback chronograph movement, the selfwinding Calibre 4401.

Both the white and the yellow gold case, paired with matching integrated bracelets, encompass the model’s new design evolution that makes its debut this year and is simultaneously presented on many Best Replica Royal Oak models measuring 34, 37, 38 and 41 mm.

The case and bracelet are endowed with larger polished chamfers that engage with light more noticeably, thereby intensifying the sparkling interaction with the adjacent Frosted Gold finish. Audemars Piguet has also made subtle modifications to the sapphire caseback, improving its integration with the case to sit more comfortably on the wrist.

The Audemars Piguet Replica contrasting textures confer a shimmering sparkle – from the grained yet smooth expanses of Frosted Gold and polished chamfers adorning the case and bracelet to the guilloché Grande Tapisserie dial.

The colour of the case and bracelet determines the tone of the Grande Tapisserie dial. The three black counters positioned on the dial provide an elegant contrast with the adjacent grey or yellow-gold-toned hues, while the Royal Oak hands and hour-markers, filled with luminescent coating, echo the respective dial colour.

At the heart of each reference is the manufacture’s latest generation chronograph movement, the Swiss Audemars Piguet Replica Watches selfwinding Calibre 4401. It is fully integrated and features a column wheel and a flyback function. Unlike a regular chronograph, the flyback function allows the wearer to stop, reset and start the chronograph in one simple action.

The column wheel works in collaboration with a vertical clutch system. When starting or stopping the chronograph, the hands respond accordingly without any hint of jumping. Furthermore, the push-pieces feel smooth when pressed. A patented zero resetting mechanism ensures that each one of the counter hands instantaneously resets to zero. The Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica movement is adorned with refined finishing, including Côtes de Genève, circular graining, circular satin and polished chamfers throughout. Visible through the sapphire caseback, these decorations further the two timepieces’ elegant aesthetic.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Blue Ceramic

After rolling out the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Replica in black and then white ceramic – making them the first all-ceramic Royal Oaks – Audemars Piguet put new colours on hiatus, until now. The Le Brassus watchmaker has just unveiled the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar ref. 26579CS in blue ceramic, making it the first Royal Oak entirely in coloured ceramic.

Though ceramic has long been a favoured case material at Audemars Piguet, it is typically employed for certain components, usually the bezel, to create two-tone appearance.And of the eight, six are black ceramic. So the latest Royal Oak is special just because of the colour.

Admittedly, the colour is not unique in watchmaking. And the AAA Audemars Piguet Replica all-blue aesthetic is certainly polarising. But an all-ceramic Royal Oak is always attractive in terms of look and feel, because the case and bracelet finishing is exemplary. The electric blue Royal Oak perhaps captures the zeitgeist of contemporary watch collecting perfectly with its brash colour, unusual materials, and integrated bracelet – it is a watch of the times.

The case and bracelet of the newest Best Audemars Piguet Replica is ceramic, specifically zirconium oxide, the standard material for ceramic in watchmaking. But the material is coloured with pigment in a process that is proprietary according to AP.Once the ceramic has been sintered at 1400°C and dyed, it has to emerge the exactly same colour across batches and components, a challenge for quality control.

But the most painstaking process starts when the parts leave the oven. They are then finished by hand to create brushed and polished surfaces. As a result, the ceramic case and bracelet retain the same attractive alternating satin and polished finish of their counterparts in traditional alloy. But the achieving this on ceramic is a far lengthier process due to the hardness of ceramic.

To match the dial with the Cheap Audemars Piguet Replcia ceramic case calls for physical vapour deposition . A technique that’s now increasingly common at larger brands like Omega and Rolex, PVD distinguishes itself from traditional electroplating in the near boundless range of colours it can create, including the perfect shade of blue for this dial.

Additionally, compared to traditional galvanic coating, PVD treatment gives the dial a more intense and striking hue, which a perfect complement for the electric case and bracelet.

Inside the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches is the same movement found in all Royal Oak Perpetual Calendars. It’s the cal. 5134, which is made up of a perpetual calendar model on top of the venerable cal. 2120/2121.

Thin at 4.3 mm including the calendar module, the cal. 5134 is nonetheless reliable enough that AP has depended on it for a half century. That said, it’s not the thinnest AP perpetual calendar movement.

The Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Tourbillon Replica Watches China

Published / by nmmcom

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Replica collection is gaining traction, especially after several facelifts that bestowed smoked dials, two-tone cases, as well as open-worked movements on the line.Continuing the evolution – and improvement – is the Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon that combines white gold and black ceramic in a novel two-tone case. More striking is the unexpected simplicity of the dial, which is a polished expanse of onyx stone, resulting in the most striking version of the model to date.

Since the launch of the collection, most AAA Audemars Piguet Replica model have been redesigned in a manner that is somewhat formulaic, though the results have been attractive. The makeovers usually involved brighter dial colours or new materials, like the recent Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon that got an aventurine glass dial.In comparison, the latest redesign is a surprise that proves less is more. Stark and minimalist yet far from plain, the onyx dial easily sets the watch apart from its peers in the collection.

Aside from the onyx dial, I also like the smart application of coloured accents. Though it is mainly in silver and black, it has just the right amount of rose gold details in just the right places to give it warmth and a bit of a vintage feel. And the black is also smartly utilised to highlight the case band as well as the tourbillon carriage, but in a subtle manner.

Unusually for the Code 11.59 line, the new Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica does away with the applied hour markers and minute hashmarks. Those elements are almost the defining features of the range, but here the minimalist design makes sense since it allows the onyx dial to take centre stage.

And the redesign was almost certainly also a matter of practicality – onyx and similar stones are a challenge to work so drilling holes to accommodate the applied markers would have been a headache accompanied by a high rejection rate.

Starting with a single block of onyx, the stonemason divides the block into thin slices that form dial blanks. Each is then cut to create the aperture for the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches before being ground and lapped to achieve a smooth, glossy surface. Finally, the stone disc is secured to a brass dial plate with adhesive and then mounted onto the movement.

Because the hour and minute markers have been removed, the domed and lacquered chapter ring becomes more obvious. It is a good match for the High Quality Audemars Piguet Replica Watches black dial, with the glossy, rounded surface of the chapter ring giving the face more depth and an upscale feel.Notably, the case has a high contrast appearance thanks to its twin materials, which allows the complex geometry and finishing to become more obvious.

The ceramic case band, for instance, has been precisely milled to form an octagon and then hand finished with either brushing or mirror polishing. Though the ceramic case middle is a rarity in the Code 11.59 Replica Swiss Movement line, it will surely become more common in the future just because it looks good.Though its finishing is done with mix of manual and industrial techniques, one detail certainly reveals the brand’s respect for tradition: the barrel visible at 12 o’clock features a grand sonnerie-style winding click, a bonus that’s typically found in top-of-the-line striking watches.
