Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica has launched a series of models celebrating half a century of its iconic Royal Oak, including a 41mm Royal Oak flying tourbillon powered by the movement recently developed for the brand’s Code 11.59 collection.
What we see today is also the Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon, but it will excite the pure watch enthusiast. The challenge for AP’s watchmakers and engineers was to accommodate the complications reserved for the 41mm RO within the smaller 39mm Jumbo case.
Known for its octagonal bezel, eight white gold screws and one-piece bracelet, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak’s Replica original 39mm stainless steel case was dubbed “giant”. You can read and watch our video about our warm reception of the new Jumbo Extra-Thin ref. 16202 and ultra-thin skeleton, equipped with a new in-house movement, known on AP as Caliber 2121, after five decades of reliance on the JLC 920 ébauche.
Jumbo Case And Dial
Notably, the classic case specifications of the new Jumbo 16202 – 39mm in diameter, 8.1mm in height and 50m water resistance – are preserved in the new Royal Oak RD#3 Best Replica Watch. Granted, the case is slightly thicker than the 7mm original, but comes with a sapphire caseback. The stainless steel case and bracelet feature the signature satin brushed and shiny hand-polished finish.
The new Jumbo Tourbillon 26670ST has a Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 Petite Tapisserie dial. However, the color is now obtained using a PVD process, ensuring a consistent and long-lasting tone across all dials. The luminous-coated white gold-applied bathtub-shaped hour-markers and hands pay homage to the original. The noon Audemars Piguet signature and minute scale are printed in white, and the flying tourbillon is placed at 6 o’clock.
AP’s ultra-thin self-flying tourbillon is a major breakthrough after five years of production and is listed as a research and development timepiece. In 2022, AP AAA Replica Watch presents its latest RD#3 watch, equipped with a new ultra-thin caliber 2968. Unlike previous RD concept watches, the RD#3 is not a concept watch and was released in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak. As the brand notes, this 39mm Jumbo with the new movement will be available in September 2022 in a 37mm version with different dial colors.
New Calibre 2968
The challenge of taking a tourbillon design previously reserved for 41mm Famous Replica Watch and fitting it in a 39mm Jumbo case was addressed with a different solution. The combination of titanium alloy and peripheral drive means that the adjustment mechanism is lighter and the energy distribution is improved. Visibility is also a key issue; the flying tourbillon is placed at dial level, and the balance arm has been redesigned and positioned to see the beating heart of the watch.
The movement is based on the new Caliber 7121 housed inside an automatic Jumbo 16202, with an extended power reserve and a rotor mounted on ball bearings. Consisting of 226 parts, the movement measures 29.6 mm in diameter and only 3.4 mm in height.
Remember, only the Royal Oak 50th Anniversary Perfect Replica watch will be equipped with the special “50-Years” oscillating weight. In this case, the rotor is rhodium-toned 22k rose gold to match the tone of the stainless steel case, and has a polished and satin-brushed finish.
Hand-decorated movement components add a modern touch to the watch, with tires on the main plate and rhodium-toned skeleton bridges replacing the more traditional Côtes de Genève decoration. The movement beats at 21,600vph and offers a power reserve of 50 hours.
