What is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon replica watch about? This watch was revealed during the 2014 Edition of Watches & Wonders as an evolution of an existing model. Not only the replica watch evolved visually but it also came with a brand new movement, mixing a tourbillon regulator, a superb chronograph and an innovative winding mechanism, all together in the rugged and masculine case of the Royal Oak replica watch.
Design-wise, the new replica watches uk is not very different from the 2011 edition. The overall shape and finish of the case remain similar, with a main part made of forged carbon and measuring 44mm x 14mm. The octagonal bezel with 8 white gold screws is here made of brushed black ceramic, a material also used for the crown and the pushers surrounded by a large and protruding protection piece made of titanium.
A black rubber strap complements this massive, robust but not so indelicate design. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph replica watch is clearly a very masculine and sporty watch but it’s not entirely denied of a certain elegance and modernity, coming from the use of highly technical materials and a mix of grey and black colours.
Considering the 44mm case, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph replica watch wears surprisingly well, the extra 2mm in diameter coming from the protection piece on the right side. It’s impressive and massive but far from being uncomfortable and unwearable too. The dial has also been upgraded on this 2014 edition, compared to the 2011 one. The “mega tapisserie” pattern remains but the two sub-counters are now black and not white anymore.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph replica watch is a limited edition. It’s an impressive piece, bold and masculine without being too rugged and large.
Easily one of the most beautiful engraved and skeletonized watches at SIHH 2016 is the Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked replica watch. Classy, handsome, useful, and timeless, the Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked replica watch is an easy answer if you are ever asked the question.
This combination of an Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked replica watch dial with a skeletonized and engraved movement makes for something truly special. With that said, one should not discount the effort required in making the Audemars Piguet replica watch actually function as a legible wrist watch. Over the movement is a sapphire crystal disc which is for the most part transparent, but given applied 18k pink gold rings and hour markers, as well as anthracite smoked regions to enable legibility on the various subdials. The only sections of the dial which are truly open to the movement are a central ring in the upper subdial which indicates the hours and minutes, as well as the exposed window for the tourbillon.
Thus, Audemars Piguet replica watch has been able to fully showcase the beauty of skeletonization while maintaining adequate legibility when trying to read the time, date, or power reserve indicator. On top of that, the Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked replica watch benefits from additional convenience by being an automatic.
You might notice that conspicuous lack of crown on the case of Audemars Piguet Tourbillon replica watch, but Audemars Piguet intentionally designed the Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked with a perfectly symmetrical case that includes a “hidden” crown which is inset to the side. With that said, the Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked replica watch is only water resistant to 20 meters.
To add to the prestigious nature of this Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon Openworked replica watch, Audemars Piguet has produced the 41mm-wide case in solid 950 platinum.
