Hands-On With The New Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin in PlatniumI am a huge fan in the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin, or simply because it was called before 2012, the 'Jumbo'. It was actually among the replica watches that sparked my involvement in mechanical replica watches in the mid 1990s. Today, I talk you the brand new reference 15202BA.OO.1240BA.01, the platnium Royal Oak Extra-Thin in gold to commemorate the 40th anniversary on the first model in this rare metal.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-ThinYou are all aware the story. Gerald Genta designed the Royal Oak for Audemars Piguet, based on the port holes of the HMS Royal Oak vessels. The name Royal Oak came from the sacred tree that hid King Charles II of England and guarded him from his pursuers in 1651. In 1972, Audemars Piguet introduced this Royal Oak watch in the Basel watchfair to get a expense of 3000 Swiss Francs. An amount that would buy you about 10 Rolex Submariner replica watches long ago. A wild amount of cash for just a watch in stainless steel. Marketed as a luxury sports watch, yet not really meant as a sports watch, obviously. More history about the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (Extra-Thin / Jumbo), is found here.Reference 5402It all began with the reference 5402ST model, A-series, for connoisseurs. We covered the A-series not too long ago, in this article. Actually designed for an italian man , market, though the watch was picked up by many (fortunate) enthusiasts world wide. It obviously was the basis for a variety of other replica watches from those years, cheap replica watches including the later IWC Ingenieur (Genta), Patek Philippe Nautilus (Genta), Vacheron Constantin '222' (Hysek) later referred to as Overseas along with the Girard-Perregaux Laureato (designer unknown) for example. Many of these replica watches shared precisely the same movement from the Royal Oak 5402, the JLC 920 based calibre 2121 movement.It was not until 1977, when Audemars Piguet chose to manufacture their Royal Oak 5402 in gold. They let go of the thinking behind an extra sports watch in stainless, and made a decision to offer it within a yellow metal at the same time. Below, among among those early 5402BA (BA represents gold inside their reference coding system) models. Photo because of the guys from Analog Shift.Later references with the Royal Oak Jumbo, such as the jubilee reference 14802 and then reference 15002 also were offered in platnium.Reference 15202Today's reference may be the 15202, which had been also the reference number before the major update next year due to its 40th anniversary. Before 2012, Audemars Piguet also experienced a 15202BA (platnium) inside their collection. After 2012, with the change on the dial ("Petite Tapisserie") and AP logo at 6 o'clock, Audemars Piguet offered the 15202 in rose gold (15202OR) form steel reference.In 2010, with the SIHH in Geneva, Audemars Piguet also released their Royal Oak Extra-Thin in yellow gold (again). By 50 percent different versions: one with a blue dial the other having a champagne dial. I have to admit, I became keen about the champagne dial replica watches version from the first moment. This 'gold-on-gold' looking version is simply amazing. To my best knowledge, and as far when i might find in gossip columns and via search engines, there wasn't any Jumbo or Extra-Thin before with this dial configuration. Previous editions always had the charcoal/grey-blue or silvery-white dial. Extra-Thin is very thinI used to own a Royal Oak 15300ST (three-hand version) and also a Royal Oak Chronograph 26300ST and while these also measured 39mm, they may be quite a bit thicker than my 15202ST. Personally, I'm sure all the versions from the Royal Oak than the 15202 (or its predecessors) are bit 'off' mainly because which the original sizing is gone. These are the bit too thick, too big or have bracelets which can be too thick. That may be all very personal naturally, however the energy the enduring Jumbo (or Extra-Thin) is the design is correct. Confuse that, and you will probably always find nitpickers just like me which might be a bit too deeply in love with details.The gold version provides the same dimensions as my own steel 15202 (from prior to a 2012 update). For the case that may be, as Audemars Piguet changed the bracelet a lttle bit on the new post-2012 models. The watch is compared to silk with your wrist, along with the thin case is actually watch to use with shirts and cuffs. Due to sportiness from the watch, it does not have this usual 'dress watch' appearance similar to other ultra-thin replica watches have. True of the 15202BA.OO.1240BA.02 (15202BA.OO.1240BA.01 for that blue dial version) is 8.1mm thick and measures - obviously - 39mm in diameter.What differs - aside from the color of the pad - is obviously the load. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin in yellow gold weighs much more than its metal version. Although I really like the 15202ST around the wrist, the gold version surely has more presence. Not only due to the color but in addition because weight. You will learn the watch at all times, giving a reassuring feeling I've got to admit.Caliber 2121One of the causes of this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak being extra-thin, is needless to say the movement calibre 2121. This movement with the late 1960s, based upon Jaeger-LeCoultre calibre 920 , was used from the time the Royal Oak was introduced in 1972. It's really a very flat movement (3.05mm), since with the absence of ball bearings. Instead, the rotor glides about this rail that ensures a somewhat thin overall package. This movement, using its Gyromax balance beautiful finish, is without a doubt my favorite automatic (time-only) movement. I've written some stories with this movement during the last 12 a lot of running Fratello Watches, and so i wouldn't like to keep repeating myself on a regular basis, however it is the best joy to look at.From the things i understood off their previous designer, Octavio Garcia (who I interviewed here, through the Royal Oak exhibition in Paris), the calibre 2121 underwent through some small changes through the years. Sure it's the same construction and design as those employed in the initial 5402 A-series, but on the way there have been made some changes. To the eyes, at least the rotor changed drastically. My very own 15202 carries a completely different rotor using this particular one.To me, the main fun in owning this watch is certainly in the movement. Once i wrote above, Before i had the 15300 with calibre 3120 movement, and thought we would trade-up at some time for the Jumbo. To me, the 15202 (a treadmill of their predecessors) may be the real thing due to the movement these kinds of sites that, the perfect measurements this watch. My business is willing to notice that the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-thin in yellow gold isn't different.Blue or ChampagneThe SIHH 2017 was obviously a bit boring in all honesty, because i explained in the first paragraph of this article concerning the A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Annual Calendar. Also our friends James Stacey and Jason Heaton of The Grey Nato discussed this in their SIHH field report. In the high-end segment, to which I definitely count this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15202BA, there wasn't much wrong to tell the truth. From the 'entry-level' approximately 10.000 Euro (I'm sure, still relative but don't forget this can be a 'haute horlogerie' fair) it turned out quite boring. Form Lange 1815 Annual Calendar, this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin in gold is unquestionably among my SIHH favorites. Although Audemars Piguet only changed the material (there seemed to be already a rose gold due to this specific reference and then there was a pre-2012 version in gold), this watch filled me with a thrill. Like a side note, I am sorry for brands like Baume & Mercier and Montblanc, that contain no real iconic piece so that it is challenging for these phones produce something distinctive.Anyway replica discount tag heuer mens watches , the choice of dials is actually amazing because of this platnium Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin 15202. Nowhere version provide a really nice contrast to the yellow gold even though the champagne dial provides it with a more 'mono' look - i always like. At first, the champagne dial appears to be a bit 'too much', however when Cleaning it once a both versions, I couldn't help myself liking the champagne dial a bit better. But to each and every his - or her - own certainly. Both dials have the amazing "Petite Tapisserie" pattern, which may be admired on a few of the close-ups that Bert made in the photoshoot. The applied hour markers and hands are coated with luminous material and present this excellent 'classy' try low-light conditions. I truly love my 15202 when it gives that slight glow which consists of long stick markers. Only few replica watches can beat that appearance.Some ThoughtsOne with the comments I heard and study with this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin in yellow gold is it will collect scratches even more than its steel brothers. My 15202ST is definitely a scratch magnet, despite the fact that I rarely put it on. It offers dings and scratches within the bezel plus a amount of scratches on and near to the clasp. Due towards the matte brushed surfaces for the watch, these scratches do catch a lot of attention if you glance at the watch. On the other hand, replica watches exist being worn and these scratches at least supply the watch a little bit of character. If you'd prefer to baby your watch, The fact that if the steel - or gold - Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin will be the best option in your case replica seiko watch . Every scratch might cause a slight panic and anxiety attack. I remarked that even a number of the completely new Royal Oaks that people had for all our photoshoot in Geneva already had some marks in it. Second day's the show.The price of this gold goodness is $55,400 USD, regardless of dial color you may choose. That is a serious cost. Going that, this season approximately, I'd been in Paris at one of several Audemars Piguet dealers for the Place Vendme and they also offered a 15202 in gold for 32.000 Euro. That has been quite an accumulation money with the 15202 in gold, because the metal version stood a list price of (then) around 15.000 Euro. I do believe it is currently just above 20.000 Euro for your Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin in steel. It really is a lot of money for a two hand watch and 55,400 USD for the gold version may also buy a watch with a bit of very decent complications.Will i still find it worth every penny? I really love the gold 15202, regardless of the high sale price. It's usually also part of the luxury and exclusive image that Audemars Piguet would rather adhere to. I really don't notice the mark-up for gold really should be that prime to be truthful. Having said that i start to see the same happening at other brand (which still doesn't justify this). However, I do think there'll be enough people who don't value this whilst still being have to have one. It does not take attraction that Audemars Piguet has Perhaps. I could only think of having this kind of gold piece sometime soon, but before this I'll cherish the stainless 15202 i have.More info via AP on-line. Caliber 2121 inside gold version.
