AUDEMARS PIGUET Royal Oak "JUMBO": AP's core value
You are watching the "Troy Helen" of Haute Horlogerie. Just like Helen launched a thousand battleships, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Treasure" is the "face" that launched thousands of opponents and rose to legendary status.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15206PT.OO.1240PT.01
This is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" 15202ST. It is the torchbearer of the AP brand and the most direct connection with the 1972 original work of the famous design ace Gerald Genta. The model was refurbished in 2012 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the birth of the model. The "Jumbo" has been refined to more accurately design the appearance, feel and aura that the designer originally envisioned.
Consider the importance of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "treasure". Although Rolex, Omega and many other brands of steel sports watches are common in the market, they were priced close to $300 in the early 1970s...and the Royal Oak in 1972 was a dream machine worth $3,000. . For the first time, a watchmaker proposed that bold design, finishing quality and investment in manual labor can justify the reasonable price of precious metals for steel watches.
The value of Royal Oak is far from a psychological barrier between steel and gold, but is inseparable from the development of the entire luxury watch after the crisis. Gerald Genta's Audemars Piguet Royal Oak believes that the market value of watches depends on the investment in craftsmanship, manpower and manual value.
Tricks such as precious metal content, technology or utilitarian functions have nothing to do with the ultimate needs and practicality of the clock. This is not just the dawn of modern luxury sports watches; it is the basis for post-quartz to reinvent luxury mechanical Popular replica watches.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" is the pioneer of Richard Mille and Grubel Forsey's exoticism, just like any high-end steel sports watch afterwards. Only summarizing the influence of the Big Mac into other models of its kind, it just underestimates its huge influence.
The case size of each Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15202ST is the same, 39 mm, a slender case (8.1 mm), and an exquisite one-piece bracelet with a classic break from 1972. Moreover, the shell encapsulates the same AP cal. 2121 (JLC 920 base) that powers the original. On the surface, these elements seem to be similar to the 41mm Royal Oak 15400 currently in production in the catalog, but the difference lies in the appearance, characteristics and feel on the wrist.
The real Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" does not have a central second hand, and its delicate link feels like a vintage part of the balance spring on the wrist, and as the light changes, the dial seems to fluctuate between gray and blue. The contour is low, the suitability is high, and the sport is an advanced game.Richard Mille RM 70-01 Alain Prost
The last point is worth emphasizing. By definition, every Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" must contain the ultra-thin 2121 automatic winding movement commissioned by AP, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin in 1967 by Jaeger-LeCoultre. It has sports and dress references from every mansion, but JLC has never used a movement in its own watches.
The biggest challenge in assembling and adjusting the automatic movement (with the date!) is to limit the production of this extraordinary machine, whose upper and lower dimensions do not exceed 3.05mm. The thickness of AP 2121 is less than half the thickness of the Rolex 3135 Automatic Date Watch. It has a very high exotic measurement function to achieve its bizarre width: a single-sided "hanging" barrel; the winding quality of the winding rides on On the four jewel rollers (the quality of the winding is sinking into the same plane as the winding system bridge!); the pallet fork bridge is actually located above the recessed balance wheel.BOVET 18 RECITAL THE SHOOTING STAR
This kind of watchmaking requires complex assembly skills to perform correctly.
AP cal is not just a miracle of packaging. The 2121 is manufactured in accordance with the standards of Audemars Piguet's fine watch minute repeater, perpetual calendar, fine mechanical watch and concept watch. The ends of each bridge are manually chamfered and mirror polished; black polishes with a single reflection angle are abundant.
The round-textured golden wheels, the violet gemstones in the polished sink, the screws with chamfered edges and slots, and the de Geneve hard case with surgical straight lines, each square millimeter of the case has a visual appeal. The intricately carved 21-carat gold winding spring makes the case more realistic.BREITLING Top Time A23310121G1X1
