While Audemars Piguet has received quite a lot of flak in the past for what some collectors perceive as milking the Royal Oak fame a bit too much, I think that the choice available within the scope is a great thing. Not everybody is able to afford a tourbillon chronograph, and not everyone wants just a time-only watch. At least the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak collection offers both as well as several different options, together with broadly similar aesthetics. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked Material Good watch comes with a bracelet of the same material as the case and an extra alligator leather strap. It’s available at Audemars Piguet boutiques and the Material Good shop in NY for $297,000 for the pink gold variation and $261,000 for the titanium version. Audemars Piguet has been creating some of the most technically intriguing watches within their Royal Oak Concept collection for the past few years. Last year, they showed off the Royal Oak Concept Laptimer, an exceptionally complicated chronograph with three pillar wheels that could measure sequential lap times. And earlier this season, they introduced the equally complicated Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie Tourbillon Chronograph watch, a second repeater exemplifying Audemars Piguet’s obsession with all audio clarity and quality.Of course, it would be cruel to show you photos and tell you about this watch’s amazing noise without a movie to allow you to hear that, and thus do play with the movie above to hear it for yourself. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie Tourbillon Chronograph watch is a piece that required Audemars Piguet eight long years to develop, and the goal was to create the ultimate striking watch. The minute repeater complication is often regarded as one of the toughest and… well, complicated to make – so imagine how difficult it’s to create one from scratch. The next issue to remember is that Audemars Piguet did not only wish to create a new moment repeater see, they wanted to make one that are the best.

Last year Audemars Piguet Couple Watches Replica unveiled a slew of Royal Oak watches in yellow gold, with a notable omission, the Royal Oak Extra-Thin “Jumbo”. As the Royal Oak marks the 40th anniversary of the first yellow gold model of 1977, that has now been rectified with a pair that will make their debut at SIHH 2017.

The new Royal Oak Extra-Thin watches in 18k yellow gold join the 50-piece limited edition made for Singapore retailer The Hour Glass last year, with both the case and bracelet in yellow gold.

While the version for The Hour Glass had a green dial, the two new additions to the collection are in dark blue and yellow gold respectively. Both dials are finished in the traditional style of the Royal Oak, decorated with Petite Tapisserie guilloche and featuring yellow gold applied markers and hands.

The case diameter is 39mm, the exact same diameter as the 1977 original “Jumbo”, though the sapphire display back means the modern iteration is slightly thicker than the solid back original.

But the movement inside remains the 2121, the slim, self-winding calibre originally developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre but now made by Audemars Piguet.
