Introducing: The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Now In A Full Ceramic Case (Including The Bracelet!)
I’m calling it here and at the present time, this is the most smoking watch of SIHH 2017. I’m not saying it’s the awesome, the most inventive, or even the most all around cherished, however it’ll be the most blazing, ensured. What’s going on here? It’s the Royal Oak from AP, in all out never-ending schedule structure, yet the case this time? Not steel or any valuable metal, but instead matte dark, brushed ceramic!
AP says it requires 30 hours to complete the arm band alone, multiple times as long as it would on a steel RO.
Now this appears to be adequately straightforward, isn’t that so? Nah, not actually. Indeed, the type is a similar 5134 found in the current RO QP, offering an incredible dainty interpretation of a never-ending moonphase with week pointer, however this case, which has for quite some time been viewed as one of the best in the realm of haute horology because of the few diverse completion types utilized, in full fired, is totally unreal.
The watch is controlled by a similar AP type 5134 never-ending calendar.
AP reveals to us that the case needed more than 600 hours of exploration to create. To give you a thought of how complex this case and wristband would it say it are, requires approximately six hours to machine, clean, hand-finish, and gather a steel arm band for a RO – the ceramic arm band? Thirty hours. For precisely the same procedure!
The artistic case here is basically unscratchable, impervious to high temperature, age, and even warm stuns! The dial here is AP’s acclaimed “Grande Tapisserie” in record dark with dark registers. The photorealistic moonphase is against the completely dark case is simply lovely.
Price ought to be around $85,000 and keeping in mind that this one is certifiably not a genuine restricted version, expect the earthenware never-ending schedule Royal Oak to be an extreme one to get simply by goodness of the fact that it is so hard to make. Expect it in the not so distant future and reference number here is 26579CE. More subtleties here .
