Audemars Piguet launched a deluge of releases – 34 to be exact. Truly celebrate what the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica represents – an incredible piece of design that has managed to not only remain relevant but has defined the current design output of the industry and in many ways watch collecting itself.
Out of the 34 new releases, from chronographs to flying tourbillons, from case sizes of 37mm to 41mm, all everyone wanted to know was what the new time and date only, Cheap 39mm Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ Replica would look like.The Jumbo now holds the designation 16202 and there were subtle changes made to the case and integrated bracelet, that accentuates its iconic silhouette and makes it wear more comfortably. But the biggest change of all is the Jumbo is now powered by a brand new caliber 7121.
The caliber 2870 in the Ra’s ultra-thin 5.3mm case remains one of the smallest and lightest in the world, and thanks to its pioneering use of titanium, its tourbillon cage measures only 7.2mm in diameter and is 0.123g light. Its patented gongs and case design were able to produce in a wristwatch a chime as loud and clear as those found in pocket Audemars Piguet Replica Watches. And it was water resistant to 20m, which is 20 more than its contemporaries.
The RD#2 was another grand complication in the form of an ultra-thin perpetual calendar. AP achieved this feat by combining the separate mechanisms of the perpetual calendar’s functions, and reduced the height of the movement from three levels to a single plane, with the dial serving as a top plate as well.
At 39mm x 8.1mm, so there won’t be any surprises to how it wears on the wrist. However, to fit their existing selfwinding flying tourbillon movement, the caliber 2950, which was designed to fit in the 41mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica, AP’s research and development team had to find a way to shave off height from the caliber 2950.
The RD#3’s caliber 2968 was developed in conjunction with the new Jumbo’s caliber 7121, and the two movements share much of the same architecture with one another. To achieve the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches China caliber 2968’s ultra-thin height of 3.4mm, a mere 0.2mm more than the caliber 7121, AP focused on redesigning the traditional tourbillon’s composition itself.
A traditional tourbillon, while seemingly complex visually, its mechanical theory is actually quite easy to understand. Have a look here if you’re still scratching your head about how a tourbillon works. As for a flying tourbillon, it is simply a tourbillon with the top bridge removed, making it seem like it isn’t being held down by any structure.
The height of the tourbillon cage is reduced, which in turn reduced the movement height by one level, and the caliber 2968 can be fitted into the Jumbo’s case. Energy transmission to the tourbillon is also improved due to the smaller angular pitch between the peripheral drive wheel and the rest of the wheel train.
All these changes have been implemented to create a feeling of lightness and airiness that complements the thinness of the Jumbo’s case. According to Michael Friedman, Head of Complications, “The Audemars Piguet 1:1 Replica Watches movement architecture was designed to offer a unique view of the smaller case while showcasing an engaging contrast of hand-finishing techniques throughout.”
Looking through the sapphire case back, the feeling of airiness persists with a semi-skeletonized movement with open-worked bridges for the automatic winding wheel train, barrel, and movement going train. In contrast, the exquisite polished beveling of the exterior edges and even for the interior angles of the skeletonized portions showcase Audemars Piguet Quality Replica Watches expertise in classic hand finishing techniques. The similarly decorated, bi-directional open-worked oscillating weight is made of 22-carat pink gold which is rhodium plated to match the movement bridges.
Whether you love or hate the idea of the tourbillon, exposed on a dial or otherwise, it is undeniably the ultimate expression of the most important component of a mechanical watch – its beating heart. In the same vein, the Royal Oak Jumbo Swiss Replica Watch is the genre-defining, ultimate expression of the luxury stainless steel sports watch.
