The AAA Audemars Piguet Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ Extra-Thin Watches

There are few watches more classic than the original 1972 AAA Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak. That slim, stainless steel sport watch’s most direct modern descendent is the so-called “Jumbo” Royal Oak, which has a 39mm case coming in at just 8.1mm thick. The watch you see here shares those dimensions – and looks almost exactly the same at first glance – but is actually crafted from a mix of titanium and platinum. The watch’s case and the large bracelet sections are brushed titanium, while the bezel and smaller bracelet links are polished platinum. The result is a subtle contrast between the tones and finishes of the white metals, creating Audemars Piguet Replica Watches that offers much more than it first appears to.

This isn’t the first time Audemars Piguet has used these two metals together. In fact, last year the brand offered up two different watches in the combination, the Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin and the Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Chronograph. I wrote fondly of those back then, and I stand by my assessment. The “two-tone” combo works really well, especially with the blue dial chosen for this latest watch, which appears to have a slightly different effect than that of the standard Jumbo. Creating meaningful variations on a classic without disrupting the qualities that make it special in the first place is difficult, but Audemars Piguet Best Swiss Watches clearly knows what they’re doing.

I’m into this watch. Like, really into this watch. From a distance, it would be possible for it to be mistaken for a completely ordinary Audemars Piguet Replica Watches, or, at best, a standard steel Jumbo. Strangers would have no idea that you’re actually sporting a rather unusual watch in a rarely seen combination of utilitarian and precious metals. It’s an everyday watch, but a very special everyday watch.

The Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin With Sunray Dials

What we have here are three new versions of the Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin, each with a colorful sunray-finished guilloché dial. There’s a purple version with stainless steel case and bracelet, a rose gold version with a blue dial, and, at the very top, a smoked blue execution with matching sapphire-set bezel and – wait for it – a platinum case and bracelet. If you look closely at the patterns on these dials, you can see that they represent an evolution of the expected Tapisserie style that has long been linked to Audemars Piguet Replica Watches and the Royal Oak, only now it radiates out from the tourbillon.

I think that it’s safe to say that of the “trinity” of great Swiss watchmakers, Audemars Piguet Replica is the youngest in attitude, the brand most willing to try different things and not take itself quite so seriously. So it can’t really surprise us to see such a classic dress watch outfitted with a new dial design shot through with such vivid colors. But a dial is just a dial, right. Powering this watch is a beautifully-finished, manually-wound tourbillon movement, the AP Caliber 2924, whose finishing, when viewed through the sapphire casebook, also radiates from the tourbillon.

I saw AP CEO Francois-Henry Bennahmias in Miami late last year, and I noticed that he was wearing a vibrant purple Royal Oak, the likes of which I had never seen before. We had quite a few other interesting Best Swiss Watches in the room at the time, including an AP Supersonnerie, so I didn’t pay overmuch attention to it. He said that it was something that he’d asked to be made for himself, so I figured it was a unique piece just for Francois’s collection.
