Not long ago, Audemars Piguet released a Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar China Limited Edition watch. This watch is inspired by the most classic red elements in traditional Chinese culture and pays tribute to the deep relationship between Audemars Piguet and China. This limited edition watch was co-designed by Audemars Piguet and brand collector Austen Chu and features a red weekly calendar hand as the finishing touch on the dial.
This brand new watch is equipped with a large 41 mm case and a handsome stylish dark-grey “Grande Tapisserie” dial. The perpetual calendar functions are displayed harmoniously and inconspicuously on the dial. The Moon-phases dial is decorated with radial patterns, with a black sub-dial and week number display inner bezel, it forms a soft color contrast with the white hour markers.
Through the transparent case back, we can clearly see the exquisite Calibre 5134 self-winding ultra-thin perpetual calendar movement.
What makes this watch so special is that it is the first Royal Oak series perpetual calendar watch made of titanium, and this is also the first time that Audemars Piguet uses titanium as martial. Although titanium looks similar to stainless steel, it has many advantages over steel:
1. Lightness: The most significant feature of titanium is that at the same density, products made of titanium will be much lighter. This is especially noticeable in the trend of modern art.
2. Strong anti-corrosion performance: Titanium has strong anti-corrosion performance, forming a tough protective layer in the air, can withstand the corrosion of various acidic or alkaline substances from life, and not only do not have to worry about sweat stains You do n’t need to worry even if you face extremely aggressive seawater when diving.
3. Not easy to wear: Titanium is 30% harder than steel. Titanium watches allow watch enthusiasts never have to worry about leaving irreparable marks in daily bumps.
4. Not easy to change color: The physical and chemical properties of titanium metal are unparalleled and sturdy, it can always maintain its own color under normal temperature conditions, and will not easily change.
In addition to the titanium bracelet, the watch also comes with two other straps: a red rubber strap and a red-stitched crocodile-pattern strap, all cleverly embellished with red.
This watch is issued in a limited edition of 88 pieces, of which the engraved “N ° 1” model is being auctioned in China for charity. Because Audemars Piguet has been doing everything it can to protect global forest resources and promote the sustainable use of natural resources, The proceeds from the watch auction will be fully donated to the World Conservation Union for forest protection projects in China.
