AUDEMAR PIGUET’S SHOW­CASE OF IN­NO­VA­TION AND DIS­TINC­TION

A CEL­E­BRA­TION OF CLASS AS THE BRAND RE­IN­FORCES ITS PO­SI­TION AS THE PI­O­NEER IN TIME­PIECE CRE­ATION

Golf Vacations (Malaysia) - - Collection -

Aude­mars Piguet’s new­est col­lec­tion is burst­ing with colour and con­trast, sparked with vi­brancy of new ideas, com­pris­ing dif­fer­ent ma­te­rial com­bi­na­tions and de­sign fea­tures. En­hanc­ing iconic pieces with mod­ern tech­nolo­gies, the brand stays ahead of the com­pe­ti­tion by turn­ing heads for decades now with their in­tri­cate pieces.

Royal Oak RD #2

Fea­tur­ing the Royal Oak RD#2, it is the world’s thinnest self-wind­ing per­pet­ual cal­en­dar at just 6.30 mm thick, 2mm thin­ner that the Royal Oak Ex­tra- Thin Jumbo. This achieve­ment took five years to de­velop and marks a new watch­mak­ing record for the brand. The big­gest chal­lenge be­hind this model was to re-en­gi­neer a stan­dard three-storey move­ment, putting it all into just a sin­gle level to achieve the thick­ness while still achiev­ing the ef­fi­ciency and ro­bust­ness that it as­pires to pos­sess.

This piece is the lat­est chap­ter in Aude­mars Piguet’s quest for world‘s firsts, which goes back over a cen­tury.

Royal Oak Off­shore

In cel­e­bra­tion of the Royal Oak Off­shore’s 25th an­niver­sary, this col­lec­tion has been en­hanced with sur­pris­ing new ad­di­tions by show­cas­ing en­hance­ments with ce­ram­ics. The Royal Oak Off­shore col­lec­tion ex­udes a more rugged and larger real es­tate com­pare to its ear­li­est sib­ling, Royal Oak in 1993. This model has ef­fort­lessly cap­tured a global fan base and has evolved through the years show­cas­ing the brand’s in­no­va­tion. To mark the cel­e­bra­tion of this model, Aude­mars Piguet de­vel­oped a piece, in­spired by the orig­i­nal de­sign, how­ever in­ject­ing it with tech­nol­ogy ad­vance­ments that are avail­able to­day. It fea­tures the orig­i­nal stain­less steel case, its blue rub­ber crown and push pieces, the sig­na­ture blue dial with “Pe­tite Tapis­serie” pat­tern and a steel bracelet with AP fold­ing clasp; pow­ered by the self­wind­ing 3126/3840 cal­i­bre that in­cor­po­rates 25 years of horo­log­i­cal up­grades and im­prove­ments. The Royal Oak Off­shore col­lec­tion pro­gresses

into the fu­ture with two new se­ries, ex­cep­tion­ally ex­clu­sive with only

50 pieces each, which they aspire to reimag­ine the Royal Oak Off­shore Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph.

Fea­tured in two sizes, the 45 mm case, again a first for the Royal Oak Off­shore, gives these pieces a sense of re­silience while ac­cent­ing a brand new tech­ni­cal move­ment de­sign that em­bod­ies Aude­mars Piguet’s ex­per­tise and bold ap­proach. Although used pre­vi­ously in Royal Oak Off­shore Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graphs, the move­ment has been en­tirely reimag­ined ex­clu­sively for the oc­ca­sion. With a new ar­chi­tec­tural con­struc­tion fea­tur­ing sand­blasted titanium bridges and sat­in­brushed cham­fered edges, the move­ment looks as if it was sus­pended from the bezel.

Di­a­monds are not the only best friends women has. An ex­quis­ite time­piece, sit­ting com­fort­ably on their wrist, re­flects the wear­ers per­son­al­ity and am­pli­fies her style in her ev­ery­day life. Women’s watches re­ceived a cou­ple of chap­ters to them­selves in this new col­lec­tion. The Mil­lenary takes cen­ter stage with new fin­ishes and ma­te­ri­als. There is also a new Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked and Royal Oak Con­cept Fly­ing Tour­bil­lon model, which is the brand’s first fly­ing tour­bil­lon and the first Royal Oak Con­cept watch for women.

Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked

The new 37 mm Royal Oak Dou­ble Bal­ance Wheel Open­worked, fea­tures cal­i­bre 3132, which was first in­tro­duced in 2016 in the 41 mm Royal Oak case. As it in­te­grates two bal­ance wheels and two hair­springs that are as­sem­bled on the same axis, the sys­tem os­cil­lates in pure har­mony. This patented mech­a­nism in­volves a com­plex fab­ri­ca­tion pro­ce­dure that im­proves pre­ci­sion and sta­bil­ity, while al­low­ing the beat­ing heart of the watch to be vis­i­ble from both sides of the case. The move­ment of this time­piece is rhodium plated which al­lows the golden reg­u­lat­ing or­gan and the up­per bal­ance bridge to be high­lighted. Ad­di­tion­ally, all the fin­ish­ing op­er­a­tions on the bridges and main plate are exquisitely hand­made: bevel­ing, cham­fer­ing, pol­ish­ing, sat­in­brush­ing and cir­cu­lar satin-brush­ing. Truly mak­ing it a mag­nif­i­cent piece.

Royal Oak Con­cept Fly­ing Tour­bil­lon

This model pro­vides for many firsts for the brand; the first Royal Oak Con­cept mod­els for women since the birth of the col­lec­tion in 2002 – and the first Aude­mars Piguet fly­ing tour­bil­lon. Haute Hor­logerie is in union with Haute Joail­lerie in these gen­er­ously di­men­sioned 38.5 mm wrist­watches avail­able in 18-carat white gold, ei­ther set with bril­liant-cut di­a­monds or baguette-cut di­a­monds. The added fas­ci­na­tion of a dy­namic com­pli­ca­tion gives it an ap­pear­ance of as if it is float­ing. The satin-fin­ished bridges, pol­ished an­gles and white lac­quered dec­o­ra­tions are in­tri­cately vis­i­ble through the sap­phire crys­tal case­back. Whilst on the dial, there’s a glimpse of the open­worked bar­rel at 11 o’clock, re­sem­bling a snowflake amid di­a­mond-set ici­cles.
