We simply hit Hong-Kong as ‘Watches & Wonders’, finest Asian watch fair began. Our stops were a student in Audemars Piguet, where we’d an enjoyment of searching in their new watch. Then when I believe that new I’m speaking about new, it is not another color or possibly different material from the existing model – it’s the completely new ‘Royal Oak Offshore’ Carbon Self Winding Tourbillon Chronograph.
Clearly since the model remains part of the Royal Oak Offshore (ROO) the casing stays consistent with its original design. If you’re not really acquainted with a history in the ROO it absolutely was launched in 1993 (the year I used to be born – the two occasions have a very secret relation) as well as, since that time increased to get probably the most used and desirable luxury sports watch ever. This Season Audemars Piguet launched their first tourbillon chronograph. Now, in 2014 they introduce an entirely new vision of the piece. Using carbon since the primary material for your situation certainly underlines and expresses the maleness and rough edges. Apart from forged carbon furthermore, it offers a ceramic bezel and titanium crown pads. It simply made sense to complete the look getting a rubber strap together with a titanium buckle.
When we vary from the outside for the inside and acquire a bit more technical the AP carbon tourbillon features a quality 2897, fully designed and created in-house, getting a 66 hour energy reserve together with a brand name-new peripheral oscillating weight that may serve as an automated rotor produced from Platinum and could just be seen round the dial in the watch (behind the apparent azure tachymeter) departing just the bare movement round the caseback. Round the dial you will see a tourbillon escapement at 6 o’clock together with a chronograph with central seconds and offset minutes (at 3 o’clock) counters.
Clearly Audemars Piguet already has other tourbillon chronograph models, but that certain supply a different dial and movement, additionally to material. Personally, the very best is proven to be rose gold version, however observe people would really love the higher sporty and aggressive novelty, particularly using the completely new self-winding calibre – most of us have been waiting for another way of the tourbillon from Audemars Piguet therefore we finally first got it.
