Introducing The New Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph Limited Edition In 18k White Gold

Introducing The New Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph Limited Edition In 18k White Gold

Snappy Take

As if out of nowhere, Audemars Piguet dropped another delivery on its site today. The Royal Oak is perhaps the most notable watch plans of the last 40 a few years, and the Royal Oak Chronograph has since cut out its very own unique spot in horological legend. This new 18k white gold Royal Oak Chronograph is a restricted version, and it features a light-blue “Grande Tapisserie” dial.

Starting Thoughts

The light, nearly powder shade of the blue dial plays pleasantly against the white gold case and integrated arm band. There is a differentiating dim blue ring around the external segment of the dial, just as around the sub-dials, boosting the general neatness of the watch. The “Grande Tapisserie” pattern is exemplary AP, and it keeps on looking great on this restricted version model. Both the hands and markers are loaded up with glowing material, and the dial features an enemy of intelligent coating.

This discharge is adequately a current – and notable – watch in the AP catalog, wearing another dial variation, in a little restricted run. That’s it. In any case, that basic certainty in any case, I happen to like the way this one looks and couldn’t imagine anything better than to see it in the metal. The shading plan of the watch – with the double shades of blue – summons a somewhat iced tasteful that fits in impeccably with the incoming cool fall and winter weather. I couldn’t say whether that was the expectation behind the plan, yet how about we go with it. 

Inside this watch beats the AP selfwinding type 2385 featuring a 18k gold oscillating weight, and 40 hours of force save. This is an integrated, section wheel, chronograph component. The watch features the now-notable integrated Royal Oak arm band, likewise in white gold. You may recollect, a few years back, Ben Clymer’s A Week on the Wrist with a strong gold AP Chronograph . In that video, Ben discussed the heaviness of the watch, as in you can truly feel the nature of the valuable metal. I question this restricted version will be any different.

A watch like this could be gone similarly as fast as it mystically appeared. As referenced at the top, it will be restricted to 100 pieces and is accessible now.
