Introducing The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Minute Repeater Supersonnerie
Out of the blue, some quite enormous news appeared on the AP site this week. What you are looking at is an Audemars Piguet Supersonnerie in a customary Royal Oak case shape. Originally declared as the Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie back in 2014, the Supersonnerie was (and is) a groundbreaking ringing wristwatch that accompanied the irregular qualification of really being stronger on the wrist than off. The way in to the Supersonnerie’s noisy and clear stable are its gongs mounted on a sound board that is covered by a caseback with openings.
Following the arrival of the primary Supersonnerie, AP accompanied a one cased up in the platinum Jules Audemars case that highlighted a striking blue dial. At that point came the current year’s CODE 11:59 Minute Repeater, which just yesterday took home the Men’s Complication prize at the Geneva Grand Prix.
The watch we’re looking at today is a 20-piece restricted release in titanium with a blue Grande Tappisserie dial. It comes on a coordinating titanium wristband. As per the AP site, it is accessible solely at the Japanese retailer Yoshida . A second, very much like form in platinum including a dark dial, additionally restrictive to Yoshida and furthermore restricted to 20 pieces, appeared at the same time on the AP site. That one is being recorded as the “Royal Oak Repeater Supersonnerie.” Both renditions are truth be told minute repeaters fueled by the physically twisted AP type 2959, which conveys 72 hours of force hold. These delicate dispatches follow a comparative late declaration, covered by Stephen, of an openworked rendition of Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in dark ceramic.
In our reality, I believe it’s protected to say that these deliveries are probably more or less huge from a brand like AP. Generally, one would anticipate that they should come with bunches of fanfare.
In terms of sheer desireability, these must be the most smoking Supersonneries delivered to date. The original adaptation had a lot of fans, and the Jules Audemars positively has its appeal. The variant in the Code 11:59 assortment got probably the most noteworthy honor in winning the GPHG’s Men’s Complication prize. In any case, this is AP, so normally, individuals will need their Royal Oak fix. It’s as fascinating that AP held back to come with a regular Royal Oak rendition of its groundbreaking moment repeater as it is that they delivered it in a particularly key manner, however now that it’s here, I can envision that numerous gatherers will need one. The AP site records them as “Cost Upon Request,” and I’ve contacted discover out what they cost. I’ll refresh this story immediately once I know.
The platinum rendition includes a dark Grande Tappisserie dial.
