ROYAL OAK CHRONO­GRAPHS

The Luxury Collection - - Audemars Piguet -

Aude­mars Piguet has been craft­ing ex­cep­tional chrono­graph wrist­watches with cre­atively de­signed di­als for well over 80 years. The first Royal Oak Chrono­graph wrist­watch was de­vel­oped in 1997 and cel­e­brates its 20th An­niver­sary this year with a new range. Just like the vin­tage ex­am­ples from the 1930s - 1960s, the di­als of the Royal Oak Chrono­graph have al­ways been thought­fully de­signed. This year’s new range harks back to a much-loved look first seen in 2008. All seven mod­els in the new se­ries fea­ture a fresh, twotone dial de­sign with sev­eral new yet sub­tle de­tails: chrono­graph coun­ters of in­creased size that ex­pand at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock, shorter but wider hour-mark­ers, ad­di­tional lu­mi­nes­cent coat­ing for a bet­ter read­abil­ity of the hour and new type­set and trans­fers. The date win­dow, mean­while, has been re-lo­cated be­tween the four and five o’clock po­si­tions.

These de­sign de­tails are show­cased in a wide com­bi­na­tion of fin­ishes, led by four ver­sions in pink gold, which are avail­able on a match­ing, pink gold bracelet or an al­li­ga­tor strap and with a choice of brown or blue ‘Grande Tapis­serie’ di­als.

The steel ver­sions of the watch are of­fered with a choice of “Grande Tapis­serie” di­als in black, sil­ver or blue and are fit­ted with stain­less steel bracelets.
