Without the usual social media campaigns, pre-scheduled events and a steady stream of articles, brands do not quietly launch a series of watches every day. Nevertheless, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is to expect surprises. This is not a new strategy of fake Audemars Piguet, they have released such watches before, so we cannot say that we are surprised.
Let’s start, we have a bunch of new green dial Royal Oak. Maybe one day late, because yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day, this is still an obvious appreciation for all green things. Recently, as blue has begun to reach the apex of its popularity, and green has begun to stand out, green has become an increasingly popular dial option.
First, we have the platinum Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin model (15202PT.OO.1240PT.01). The smoky dial changes from emerald green in the center to black on the periphery, which is magnificent. As we expected, this is “AP House Exclusive”. In recent years, the Associated Press has been withdrawing their popular styles and series from their AD network and launching such a watch, which will be in great demand, because House Exclusive is not shocking. This stunning piece abandons the AP tapestry dial pattern, for this unique modern beauty that is not controlled by time and continues to exist as one of the most popular watches on the planet.
Next, we launched the 18k gold Royal Oak Chronograph (26331BA.OO.1220BA.02), equipped with another incredible emerald green dial, this time using AP’s iconic tapestry dial pattern. With its similar color scheme comparable to John Mayer Daytona, this will undoubtedly become a very popular watch. Limited to 125 pieces, this is a watch that may see crazy after-sales value.
In addition to the Royal Oak series, we also introduced three new variants of the Royal Oak automatic flying tourbillon, each powered by the Associated Press’s latest flying tourbillon movement cal. 2950. All have the same emerald green dial with a tapestry pattern emanating from the center of the tourbillon. These differences are reflected in the metal and gem inlays. One variant made of titanium (26534TI.OO.1220TI.01) does not have any gemstones (limited to 50), and the other titanium variant (26532IC.EE.1220TI.01) is set with 32 stones along its bezel The emeralds (limited to 15 pieces) and the last model (26533OR.OO.1220OR.01) are made of 18k rose gold (limited to 10 pieces). This flying tourbillon Royal Oak collection covers almost all collections. These watches will not be available until April, so you have time to save for them. Although we don’t have a price yet, we think they will be very expensive.
Royal Oak Offshore Diver
Following Royal Oaks, we have introduced three new colors for the popular and durable Royal Oak Offshore Diver series. All are equipped with a new internal movement and interchangeable strap system, AP began to join Cartier, Vacheron Constantin and other companies that have begun to provide interchangeable strap convenience.
Released in “Pristine Grey” (15720ST.OO.A009CA.01), “Navy Blue” (15720ST.OO.A027CA.01) and “Trailblazing Khaki” (15720ST.OO.A052CA.01), these three diver functions Its iconic Mega Tapisserie dial pattern, internal unidirectional rotating bezel, 10 o’clock position crown (control bezel) and dial matching rubber strap, and an additional strap. Both khaki and navy blue have matching straps and an extra black strap, while gray has a matching strap and an extra blue strap-all these extra straps are in line with the model’s interior The rotating bezel matches.
Supported by the new calibration. Calibre 4308, these Divers have a 60-hour power reserve, AP and a black 22kt gold winding rotor with incredible finishing performance. Continuing to improve their products, it’s great to see AP take a new campaign for their Divers and provide some of the best technology on the market. It will be available in May, and the price has not yet been announced, but compared to the aforementioned Royal Oak, you have a better chance to buy one of them.
With their incredible display marking the beginning of the 2021 novelty season, these new watches have undoubtedly let go of the challenge. All other brands have to do now is to stand up and show us what they are made of.
