By convention, Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Watches launched some very impressive new hardware at SIHH this year. While the focus of the past few years has focused on their iconic Jumbo (the celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2012 or other lesser-known high-end watchmaking works (such as Jules Audemars Tourbillon)), this year is still a firm backing of other collections: Royal Oak Offshore.
The original Royal Oak Offshore was released to the public in 1993 as a follow-up to Gerald Genta’s award-winning A-series “Jumbo.” This is the second time Audemars Piguet Replica Watches has had a serious gamble with Royal Oak, and it has been eliminated from the park for the second time. Just as the original Royal Oak Jumbo created a new watch category in 1972 (Luxury Sports Watch), Royal Oak Offshore (as a new model after the 1993 launch) is the real first watch for the next generation of luxury. Consumers of watches and clocks, launched another new category: super sports luxury watches.
Of course, the first Royal Oak Offshore (we call it ROO) is not completely out of size by today’s standards, with a diameter of 42mm. But in 1993, it was an absolute monster. There is an extra-thick case and a robust bracelet that looks like the original Gay Freres unit steroid, which is completely statement. Over the past two decades, the Offshore series has been almost as large as the various styles and has become an independent sign, even though they have become so large that many people can’t stand an enthusiast.
But for those who wear them, ROO is a religion, and many people have more than one version. In the past 20 years, almost a myriad of variants have been produced to commemorate the collaboration with musicians, actors and athletes, as well as a variety of dedicated mission watches, such as popular divers. For some people, the obsession with ROO is hard to understand, while others compare it to the stereotypes of other cult collectors, such as the old-fashioned Rolex crowd. Regardless of the model you use, ROOs have a major impact on sports timepieces, which have been replicated by many other brands in an attempt to capture some of the success of APs.
This may be a huge success for ROOs and their subsequent imitators, which has caused many collectors to “get detached” from large luxury sports watches. After all, nothing can kill a trend of too much popular stuff. In addition, for more restricted watch collectors, the combination of ROO as a gangster and a watch that wants a rock star may be a bit overbearing.
This is not to say that ROO (or any Audemars Piguet) is not a fantastic timepiece, and even its occasional critics will admit it. It has become a bit… a lot, and recently there is something that is less ostentatious.
Just this week’s SIHH, Audemars Piguet Replica responded to the call in a grand style and launched the new 42mm Offshores collection. This version is a step backwards for the original ROO and may be as much as the Offshore series, just as the 15202 40th Anniversary Edition has been made for Jumbo since its launch in 2012. Despite the continued popularity of large-scale sports watches among consumers, there is an imminent and noteworthy change in the near future. Manufacturers are slowly but surely adjusting their series (literally!) to prepare for the next big thing – in this case, it will be a smaller watch (relatively – they will never be petite, you are not I will really see a sports watch below 39mm). For Audemars Piguet, these smaller ROOs are a good start because they will undoubtedly bring in a whole new group of buyers who are unable to launch larger versions due to wear resistance and are also stubborn ROOs. Fans bring a comprehensive circle. Their tastes are maturing, surpassing the huge and sacred temperament, and have been crying for smaller, more sustainable wearers.
We accepted the actual inspection of six new products in the new 42mm series, including two lovely examples of rose gold and four pieces of steel. Like the original Offshore, the new collection uses bold colors on the dial, hands and auxiliary registers, and all feature the trademark Mega Tapisserie texture. Improvements to the original model include the back of the sapphire display (long-term requirements of ROO loyal users), as well as ceramic case components, including chronograph putters and crowns. The version on the belt now also features a buckle instead of an unfolded buckle. All products are now equipped with the AP Calibre 3126 chronograph movement.
There is no doubt that this series will be greatly expanded after the first launch later this spring, but the first products that can be purchased will be the pictures here. The price of the rubber steel model is $25,600 and the price of leather is $26,000. Rose gold leather costs $40,700 and bracelet prices are $69,200.
For those who appreciate the design and manufacture of marine collectibles but leave for image or size reasons, it is time to reconsider. 42mm is by no means a “small” watch, but it’s incredible how much difference 2mm can make in terms of wear resistance, and as the watch tends to have a smaller outer casing size and a smaller design, this The new small ROO is likely to be the king of the hills once again. Anything bigger can be outdated.
To be honest, I never thought I was a fan of ROO, because my taste was moving towards the slimmer and smaller direction of the Royal Oak series. However, when our friends at the Associated Press took out this new 42mm series to show me the flesh, I admit that I was immediately shocked by their beauty and what they represented. I am really happy to see Fake Audemars Piguet Watches – an unnecessarily large and showy watchmaker of the trend – returning to their roots, providing reasonable size and exquisite sports luxury timepieces as a modern The foundation of the brand.
