Those models, in rose-gold and white-gold case options, featured the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches China Royal Oak’s well-known “Tapisserie” patterned dial. This year, AP has once again teamed with Bucci for another special edition, this time applying the “frosted” finish to yellow gold — the Florentine designer’s favorite version of the precious metal — and replacing the traditional “Tapisserie” dial with a shiny, mirrored one never before seen in the collection.
The case of the new Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Carolina Bucci Limited Edition Royal Oak Frosted Gold, a limited edition of 300 pieces, measures 37 mm in diameter, matching the dimensions of the larger of the two versions released in 2016.
The case’s “diamond dust” sparkling finish is achieved by hammering the gold with a diamond-tipped tool to create tiny indentations — a process that dates back to ancient Florence. The silver-toned mirror dial, under a glareproofed sapphire crystal, has appled indices and luminous-treated hands in the classical Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Style. Another sapphire crystal in the caseback offers a view of the self-winding movement, with a 3-Hz frequency and a 60-hour power reserve.
On her choice of the mirrored dial for her second collaboration with Audemars Piguet, Carolina Bucci says: “With the first Frosted Gold design, I took the perfection of the Royal Oak case and bracelet and “roughed them up” a little, juxtaposing the perfectly imperfect Florentine finish with Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Swiss Movement Swiss watchmaking precision. Now I’m doing the opposite, taking the textured surface of the “Tapisserie” dial and flattening it out into a perfectly smooth mirror.”
The 18k yellow gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica bracelet boasts the same hammered finish as the case and closes with a traditional AP folding clasp.
The Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Millenary has always been a rather oddly shaped timepiece, often chosen by collectors who are drawn to the elegant, oval case, with its beautiful, alternating satin-brushed and polished finishing and stepped lugs. Millenary watches always features an off-center dial. The new Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadriennium has a large off-center dial for the hours, minutes, date, month and day of the week, along with a small subdial for the running seconds.
The month is visible through a small aperture just above the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Roman numeral XII, and the day of the week is just below the Roman numeral VI. From the center of the dial come three hands for the hours, minutes and date. So what is this new type of calendar? Let’s first explain the difference between an annual calendar and a perpetual calendar. Every wristwatch with an annual calendar displays the date, often also the month, and sometimes the day of the week. It indicates all of these correctly every day of the year, except at the end of February.
The new Quadriennium Replica Watches China does not have to be adjusted at the end of February, at least in three out of every four years. This means it automatically takes into account that February has 28 days and jumps to March 1st. Only in the leap year will it need to be adjusted, because the calendar’s mechanism “thinks” that February always has 28 days. Essentially, the Cheap Replica Watches Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadriennium is the only watch that needs to be adjusted backwards in February.
Technically, it’s a magnificent timepiece, though some might find the Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica unbalanced dial to be a bit “messy.” The Roman numerals on the left-hand side are larger than those on the right-hand side, the font used for weekdays looks larger than that used for the months, and two “bites” have been taken out of the dial, for the seconds subdial and the balance wheel. The gold screws in the hour/minute dial and the seconds subdial are a reference to timepieces of yesteryear; however, they also distract the attention, as does the red pointer-date hand.
