Royal Oak is one of Audemars Piguet’s evergreen watches, but do you know the origin of this name? It was said that during the British Puritan revolution in the 17th century, King Charles II of England escaped from a hollow oak tree, so the oak tree became the protector of the royal family, even the name of a battleship. In 1972, the famous Gerald Genta designed this watch for Audemars Piguet, which was inspired by the makeup of the portholes on the battleship, and has since created this classic. In 2005, the time-honored Royal Oak has a new look. The classic makeup of the octagonal porthole is incorporated into a more generous faceplate design, and it is replaced with the well-received diy3120 movement and sapphire crystal back cover. It is full of attractiveness for many people, and has been lingering in the heart of Xiaobian. Until a while ago, I was finally officially exhibiting in Taiwan. I wanted to borrow one to write a close-up of the watch immediately. Unexpectedly, because many players have already ordered it, they failed to do so. Until now I have the opportunity to appreciate this classic. A few say, come watch appreciation directly!
The classic appearance has not changed much, maintaining the consistent design of Royal Oak. Even if compared with other Audemars Piguet models, it has a thicker sports style, but still handles all the details like its Dress Watch. The octagonal bezel is fixed with famous white gold screws. The matte and bright sides are rich in layers. The edges of the case, lugs and bands of the knuckles are specially cut out. It looks more refined and beautiful visually, and the actual touch is more comfortable. A thin black rubber ring can be seen between the bezel and the case. This is one of the traditional characteristics of Royal Oak’s net, and it is truly waterproof. The straps are solid as expected, and the hidden buckle is delicately portrayed with the Audemars Piguet logo. When you open it, you do n’t see the ordinary folding steel sheet, but the double-folding buckle of the word AP. It has brand characteristics; the clasp is controlled by a push-type reed, which is quite easy to use.
Faceplate and hands
The biggest difference between the appearance and the previous one is the design on the face plate. Now it looks that the previous one has more simple and classic beauty, while the new one has a more modern feel. The two present different charming styles. The area of the luminous paint on the hands and time scales has been greatly reduced. The original rounded corners have increased the straight lines, which is less classical but more bold, and more young and generous. The hands and hour markers are cut into several different slopes, which shine with different light sources, making it easy to read the time from any angle. The faceplate continues the traditional three-dimensional cube of the net. I believe that if the watch guessing activity on this site only shows a part of this faceplate, many friends will easily see that this is the Royal Oak. The unique design has already become his Note the trademark; the date box is slightly inwardly shrunk, and the frame is delicate, and the texture is delicate; the minute scale cancels the number every 5 minutes, and the complexity is simplified.
Even if Audemars Piguet modified the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement in the past to make a lot of popular watches, it continued to innovate and progress, and took its own path. At the Basel exhibition in 1999, it released a new concept of 3090 manual winding movement, and then launched 3120 The automatic movement of the movement caused a lot of attention in the watch altar. The new Royal Oak’s 3120 movement, under the sapphire crystal caseback, clearly shows his excellence, straddling balance bridges, weight balances, fine engraving of the automatic plate and delicate modification of all parts … … Etc. In explaining his uniqueness, in addition to being visually pleasing, according to data, his structure is precise and durable, and it is one of the rare movements today. I believe that in addition to the attractiveness of beauty, it is practical Sexually, Royal Oak can also bring great satisfaction. Many expensive watch movements are beautiful, but they may not be able to take into account the durability and practicality, while rugged and durable like Rolex, but they can not meet the requirements of the United States; it seems that the new Royal Oak equipped with 3120 will soon Create your own world again!
