Audemars Piguet presents a new blue dial for the Royal Oak "Jumbo" ultra-thin 16202 watch
How do people keep up with a 50th anniversary full of limited edition releases? For Audemars Piguet, the answer seems to be to keep doing what you want to do. The brand has just announced the launch of a limited-edition Royal Oak "Jumbo" ultra-thin watch, which swaps out the tiny checkered dial for a brand-new style. Presented in a subtle shade of blue, the new 16202 model offers the same refined case and historic elements as its release last year, but with a dial sure to excite.replica luxury watches
Let's cut to the chase. The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" ultra-thin watch features a new grained blue dial, clearly inspired by the special dial of the Royal Oak 14802 platinum introduced in 1992. The dial is protected by a flat sapphire crystal that offers a very fine texture that resembles asphalt in the close-up photo provided by the brand. The blue hue is obtained by PVD, then covered with a translucent coat to accentuate the texture. Happily, the brand has kept everything white and blue on the dial with a date window at 3 o'clock. One of the best things about the Extra-Thin is how it uses the same applied hour markers and earpieces as the earlier Royal Oaks – here, platinum and fluorescent fill – and the slim, rounded batons offer a simpler, less obtrusive look. Striking style those 15500.
The white gold case features the same remarkable Royal Oak cheap replica watches design that kicked it all off. The porthole bezel is brushed with a polished bezel, and the iconic eight screws are perfectly aligned. Note that this is currently the only white gold case with no other decoration or part of the intricate Royal Oak. The case is perfectly matched, and the chiseled brushed finish blends seamlessly into the integrated bracelet, both with polished bevels. One of my gripes with the Royal Oak has always been the smaller crown. I know it's necessary for the low profile, but that doesn't mean I can't complain, because it seems to be the same in this version. In any case, the watch maintains the 50-meter water resistance of the series. Of course, the bracelet is closed with a folding clasp. The ultra-thin model has a 39mm case and is just 8.1mm thick.
The movement is one of the newest in the AP stabilizer, the automatic Caliber 7121, which debuted last year in the 50th-anniversary 16202s (and featured a special rotor for the occasion). Hand-finished to the level one would expect from Le Brassus, it features Côtes de Genève, circular graining and chamfering throughout, and the contrasting 18K rose gold bridge and rotor decorations are equally impressive. The oscillating weight's ball bearing utilizes two internal reversers for bi-directional winding, the date wheel has a quick-set function, and the balance wheel has an inertia mass to help with shock resistance. Functionally, the movement runs at a frequency of 28,800 vph and achieves a power reserve of 55 hours.best replica watches
