Audemars Peiguet presented a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica case-study at SIHH 2018. It was a concept watch that showed the brand's expertise in watchmaking. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica The Royal Oak #RD2, also known for being the world's thinnest perpetual calendar, was shown last year. It was both complex and familiar inside, with all the characteristics of a Royal Oak watch. We knew it would not be a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica concept. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Calendar Ultra-Thin is here.One hot topic is the race to be ultra-thin. This includes a fight between Piaget, a long-term expert and Bvlgari. The Italians have broken five world records in a mere ten years. They also recently Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica created the thinnest mechanical watch ever. But these are just two of the most prominent thinness experts on the market. Audemars Piaget has been a long-time expert in this area for decades. This expertise was demonstrated by the RD#2 concept watch, which was introduced at SIHH 2018.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica
SIHH 2018: The Audemars-Piguet RD#2 was Audemars Replica Watches presented with a full platinum case, and a guilloche dialThis remarkable piece of mechanical engineering was the thinnest ever automatic perpetual calendar. A familiar Royal Oak case measuring 41mm by 6.3mm in size contained a new movement. It was based on the ex-JLC calibre 2120 base and has a new QP mechanism. The concept watch was actually more of a prototype to see how the mechanics would react... It is now in its final commercial phase.The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calender Ultra-Thin watch retains many of the same specifications and mechanical solutions as the RD#2. The visual changes are mainly cosmetic. Its case (still 41mm by 6.30mm) has been made an "IP" meaning it is brushed titanium. This includes the caseback, crown, and most of the bracelet. There are also polished platinum accents, such as the bezel and central links. The RD#2 prototype was entirely made from 950 platinum and was extremely heavy on the wrist.
This Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calender Audemars Piguet Replica Watches Ultra-Thin shows the second evolution. The commercial version features a matte, vertically brushed dial that is free from the "petite tapisserie", guilloche pattern seen on the RD#2. This choice is a smart one, considering the number of indicators on the dial. It makes the watch easier to read and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica cleaner.The RD#2 dimensions are still applicable to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Kalender Ultra-Thin. The case measures 6.30mm high, which is 3.2mm lower than the regular Royal Oak Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica Perpetual Calendar. How is this possible, given that both watches use the same mechanical architecture?The perpetual calendar module's classical design has been re-engineered so that it can be used as a single Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica element only on one plane. Two patents were filed to further improve several aspects of the QP mechanism. The first patent concerns the date wheel. The second is the 48-month wheel. Both elements allow the watch Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica calculate the calendar indications and display correct dates. Each watch has a new geometry that reduces height.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica
Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calender Audemars Piguet Replica Ultra-Thin now has 5133 inside the titanium case. New...? It is not entirely new, however, as the base of this movement is the 2120 movement, which powers the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica Extra-Thin Royal Oak 150202 and the JLC movement. This movement was found in the early Jumbo 5402 and is an old movement that still has a central rotor and is one of the most thin automatic calibres. This movement has a floating barrel without bridge and a rotor of a particular construction. Most of the weight is moved to its periphery. It is supported by a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica beryllium ring, 4 jewels and a weight to support the oscillating weight. These are the same solutions that were used on the RD#2 as well as the current Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica watch.The QP mechanism is completely different from the one found in the regular Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. Audemars Pigot worked first to simplify the mechanism. It is not difficult, but it is complex. There are 374 parts to the cal. 5134, the new Cal. 5133 features 256 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica components. A redistribution on a horizontal plane of parts has resulted in a reduction in thickness, but a greater movement (32 vs. 29mm).Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Quartz Replica
