The timing function has a close relationship with sports watches. In the legendary Royal Oak series featuring sports, the chronograph also naturally occupies an important position. At the time of the 40th anniversary of the world’s first distinguished sports watch, Audemars Piguet introduced the new Royal Oak series automatic winding chronograph to keep pace with the times. The new Royal Oak series self-winding chronograph uses a 41 mm diameter case, which is more magnificent and clearer when read.
The large rose gold case has a modern look, and in addition, the classic elements that make up the collection’s reputation are readily available. The new chronograph is based on the first Royal Oak collection in 1972, with a subtle contrast of matte and polishing, as well as a series of classic characteristics such as the iconic octagonal bezel and hexagonal platinum screw design. Water-resistant to 50 meters, with screw-in crown and anti-glare sapphire crystal surface. Hand-stitched black alligator strap with rose gold AP safety folding clasp.
The large “Grande Tapisserie” pattern unique to the black dial decoration series. Dial plaque decoration is an exclusive technology of Audemars Piguet. It is created from the inside by an ancient machine. It is cut into squares and printed with a grid pattern. This double-layered decoration process is unique to the Royal Oak dials and is an irreplaceable feature of this series. The AP letter logo is located under the brand logo. It is subtle and understated, and leaves room for the double hour mark design at 12 o’clock. The double hour mark design inspiration is also derived from the Royal Oak series in 1972. Three-dimensional hour-markers and rose gold hands with fluorescent coating are also one of the characteristics of the Royal Oak series. The chronograph dial and its inner circle scale have also been designed repeatedly to make it easier to read.
The new Royal Oak 41mm self-winding chronograph is equipped with a 2385 self-winding mechanical movement with hours, minutes, small seconds and date functions. There are 304 movement components, a power reserve of 40 hours, and a vibration frequency of 21,600 times / hour (3 Hz). The one-piece automatic plate is made of 18K gold.
The new Royal Oak 41mm self-winding chronograph is available in a variety of styles: stainless steel or rose gold case, black, silver or blue dial (blue dial only with stainless steel), with stainless steel, Rose gold or leather strap.
