For an industry where timing is everything, watch manufacturers waste none of it when it comes to releasing new products for the new year. Even before Thanksgiving dinner is cleared, there’s a trickle of announcements for new Audemars Piguet Replica Watches for 2019.
Audemars Piguet Replica is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its iconic Royal Oak Offshore, which first launched in 1993.
The Swiss watchmaker is presenting three new versions of the iconic sports watch: a re-edition of the original 42 mm Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph; and a new 45 mm Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph with a contemporary dial design in stainless steel and pink gold.
Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica introduced a concept minute repeater – the RD#1 “Acoustic Research” – as part of a series showcasing new technology and materials developed by the brand’s R&D department. The prototype was the result of eight years of research and represented a breakthrough in the acoustic quality and volume of chiming technology. This year the concept has become a reality.
While some minute repeaters need to be held to the ear in order to listen to the melody, the Supersonnerie chime can be heard loud and clear from the bleachers. Audemars Piguet Cheap Replica Watch is not exaggerating when it says the chime is 10 times louder than a typical chiming watch. The main innovation lies in the case construction. The chiming mechanism applies the principles of stringed instruments. Gongs are attached to a purpose-built copper-alloy plate that Audemars Piguet Replica Watchescalls a “sound board” positioned between the movement and the mainplate. Normally the gongs are attached to the plate itself.
The principle is akin to the way strings work in an acoustic guitar, stretched over a hollow case that amplifies the sound. Gongs are conventionally attached to the mainplate, which can dampen rather than enhance the chime. The Fake Audemars Piguet system essentially separates the acoustical from the technical, resulting in a cleaner, louder sound, amplified by the space between the plate and the sound board. This is further enhanced by a silent striking regulator built into the movement that blocks any interference noise from the governor, the mechanism that triggers the strike.
Another innovation is the shape of the hammers, which are flexible, so they work like a shock absorber to eliminate secondary noise. The new mechanism also picks up the tempo, Best Audemars Piguet Replica Watches eliminating the sound gap between the hours and minutes when there are no quarter hours to strike. The time in between is reduced by 50 percent compared to a conventional repeater, which pauses between hours and minutes when there is no quarter strike.
The case is titanium, and the openworked dial and blackened bridges give the watch a contemporary look compared to the conventional designs of most repeaters. To develop the technology in the Supersonnerie, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replicapartnered with the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, a Swiss organization dedicated to the study of acoustics.
Audemars Piguet has gone for what many would consider old-school horological luxury — releasing a new version of its Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Replica in classical yellow gold.
Why yellow gold, you might ask — a material that has in recent years fallen out of vogue in the watch aficionado community. Audemars Piguet, whose motto “To break the rules, you must first master them” is on bold display here, refers to it as luxury watchmaking’s “most elemental material… the universal emblem of indestructible beauty, energy and light… symboliz[ing] wealth and power.” Like the most recent models of the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, in steel and rose gold, this watch has a 41-mm case in the classical octagonal style of the Royal Oak collection and featuring a clear, glareproof sapphire caseback. It has a screw-locked crown, ensuring water-resistance of 20 meters.
The au courant blue dial is decorated with the collection’s familiar “Grande Tapisserie” pattern of subtly raised three-dimensional squares. The Cheap Replica Watches calendar displays are on prominent subdials at 9 o’clock, 12 o’clock, and 3 o’clock. In addition, an astronomical moon-phase display appears at 6 o’clock and the week of the year is indicated on a numbered 1-52 chapter ring surrounding the dial. The applied hour markers, like the case, are in yellow gold and the hands are treated with luminous coating.
Also like its predecessors, which debuted earlier this year, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in yellow gold contains a new movement, the self-winding Caliber 5134, based on AP’s Caliber 2120. It consists of 374 parts, including 38 jewels, measures 29 mm in diameter by 4.31 mm thick Audemars Piguet Replica, and has a balance frequency of 19,800 vph. According to Audemars Piguet, the movement carries a minimal guaranteed power reserve of 40 hours.
