In 1972, Audemars Piguet revolutionized the world of watchmaking with the launch of a luxury watch made of the most ubiquitous material in the world of watchmaking: steel. Since this is the golden jubilee of the Royal Oak, a series of precious metal releases will be very meaningful. Audemars Piguet presents a Best 41mm Perpetual Calendar Royal Oak Replica with a new blueberry blue ceramic case and bracelet. With its Tapisserie dial, integrated bracelet and octagonal bezel, the Royal Oak is one of the most iconic styles of all watches produced over the past half century.
Despite starting the steel revolution in luxury sports watches, Audemars Piguet did not shy away from precious metals and exclusive materials, including gold, platinum, titanium and ceramics. While this is by no means the first Royal Oak made of ceramic – not even the first Royal Oak perpetual calendar made of ceramic – it is the first time Audemars Piguet has made a case and bracelet entirely in blue ceramic. For this version, Audemars Piguet replica watches opted for a case diameter of 41mm, a thickness of 9.5mm and an impressive water resistance of 20 meters.
Ceramic is an ideal material for watches because it is lightweight and resistant to scratches and wear. And, if you really know what you’re doing, it can produce a wide range of shades. However, this material is uncommon for good reason. Producing a ceramic Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica watch is challenging; it is then machined into shape and finally hand-finished for this notoriously difficult material. In this case, the result is a stunning blue hand-finished by Le Brassus artisans, offering the same satin brushed and polished chamfers that create the signature Royal Oak shimmer.
Audemars Piguet has made sure the dial is as impressive as the case, using a colour-matched PVD blue hue on its Grande Tapisserie dial, sub-dial and inner bezel. Applied indexes and faceted hands are 18k white gold and filled with luminous material. Three calendar dials and moon phases provide symmetry on the dial and provide the wearer with hour, minute, day, date, day of the week, month, astronomical moon and leap year information.
The Luxury Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Replica is powered by the Calibre 5134 movement. 5134 takes into account not only the number of days in each month, but also the date of leap years, and no manual adjustment is required for nearly 80 years. The 5134 is a newer Audemars Piguet movement that, despite some complications, is only 4.3mm thick, making the entire case 9.5mm in size. The movement has 38 jewels, a 40-hour power reserve and a 19.8 bph skeleton rotor.
The Swiss Replica Watches has a perpetual calendar and it’s in a brand new blue ceramic, no doubt the price will be stratospheric, and it’s an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar blue ceramic. That is if you can manage to get one first. Ignoring price and availability, it’s refreshing to see yet another royal oak in a colourful ceramic case to follow. Now that Audemars Piguet has added blue to their ceramic palette, we’ll have to wait and see how far the brand is willing to go in exploring new, vibrant ceramics.
