Only watch 2021: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” REF. 15202XT.
Say goodbye to exotic.
Audemars Piguet (AP) has no secret, ie it retired royal oak ultra-thin reference 15202 at the end of 2021 – with slim CAL. 2121 internal movement. Basically is the remake of the original Royal oak referee. 5402 “Jumbo” was launched in 1972 and references. 15202 will be missing, and the susceptor is expected.
But AP is only a thin view of Royal Oak “Jumbo”, just watch the 2021 style farewell. 15202XT is in titanium and bulk metal glass. Although modern materials, the watch is a dead forest for the “A Series” Royal Oak Referee. 5402 Because the dial is the original copy until the typography.
This is difficult to make reference. 15202 is not attractive. Close to the original appearance and feel, refer to. In the past few years, 15202 has been iterated many times, and each version of the style is slightly different, but it is equally attractive – examples include “squid” or smoked green version.
Wearing a gray shadow, the only monitoring version is different from the color and texture of his seniors, but still handsome. The full gray tone palette is an attractive industrial feeling, which is suitable for a barbaric but exquisite angle style.
The color is not the only difference between “Giant View”. The blasting titanium box and bracelet is the first of REF. 15202 – Standard finish is a linear brush teeth – and the use of bulk metal glass is the first of the brand.
There is also a thinner detail, the only watch “Jumbo” may be the most important: the revival of the dial discovered on the original retro. This retro touch may also be the upcoming royal oak may hint.
Just like the contribution to the previous auction, “Jumbo” ref. 15202XT is a modified example of a conventional production model. By fixing the overall structure, leave the details to distinguish between “giant giants”.
One key feature of the only watch version is the use of double material. One is a familiar, titanium and another, novel – bulk metal glass (BMG). The material is a metal alloy also known as an amorphous metal because it lacks a metallic crystal structure of the metal, but has an amorphous atomic arrangement in the glass.
According to the AP, the particular material used is based on palladium-based BMG, which allows “unique rays” when manual is completed. It is carried out with mirror polishing and is used for stops, links to the bracelet, and the case returns.
On the rare material, the only replica watches best“jumbo” is different. Most of the cases and bracelets are sandblasted, creating a granular, gentle appearance suitable for monochrome palettes. However, in the tradition of maintaining royal oak, the sandblast surface is made of mirror polishing slope, and can be found along the edge of the housing and the bracelet. Of course, the BMG baffle is fully polished.
Finally, the only watch “giant” is also a farewell to CAL. 2121 (or CAL.2120). Originally CAL. 920 was developed by Jaeger-Lectre (JLC). In 2000, this movement was acquired (when it sold its shares in JLC) and promoted the Royal Oak ultra-thin and royal oak permanent calendar.
