Always the watches produced by 'Audemars Piguet are designed and manufactured with the North Star always points in the direction of research and development of the art of watchmaking. And in the wake of this mission business, then get ready to live a new, exhilarating experience of this chapter despite the prestigious House Switzerland had already stunned the world with the revolutionary Royal Oak Concept RD #1.
A clock that "counts"
We mentioned Royal Oak Concept RD #1 as already the emblem of something fantastic, a clock that is that excels with its new system created by 'Audemars Piguet completely brand new, which increases and enhances the audibility of the so-called movement ticking inside: whether it should be a challenge, it can be said that it has been won, and with the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept RD #2 you can even better!
Presented in the edition 2018 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Geneva (better known as SIHH), as a prototype, the first detail that surprised all fans and insiders effects is that in 'Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept RD #2 we have the Perpetual calendar thinnest automatic in the world. The new internal movement, categorized with the number 5133 and consisting of well 37 jewels (Absolute record !!), it has a thickness of only 2,89 mm., A figure that has seen from the outside of the drug for a threadlike structure as well and for a mechanism from which so many functions.
The clock itself has in fact a total thickness of 6,30 mm. and it has been studied and perfected a good five years before its launch on the market. A project of this Royal Oak Concept RD #2 started in 2013, ie in the period in which the CEO of 'YouFrancois Henry Bennahmias, took the reins of the company.
But to clarify what we are talking about good, let's do a little comparison with others? The Royal Oak Extra-ThinFor example, an automatic watch with date and time that only measure 39 mm., Is much more often the Royal Oak Concept RD #2 with its 8,1 mm. Total movement.
and the Royal Oak with automatic winding, is a timepiece from 41 mm. with a thickness of only movement 9,8 mm. Total. Finally, there is also the classic Perpetual Calendar Royal Oak, Available in a range of materials (We of Jewellery Bonanno we introduced you to the fabulous ceramic clock in recent days), copy which has a thickness of 9,5 mm. movement, proving to be even thinner than quartz model Royal Oak The 33 mm.
More detail is amazing is that this Royal Oak Concept RD #2 may not be as inconspicuous to a not particularly accurate look like instead appears to be the RD #1But trust me, it is just as impressive!
We Jewelery Bonanno we agree with most of the critics that defines this Royal Oak Concept RD #2 as an exciting development, if not exciting for the entire production Audemars Piguet. It is obvious that this race continues the evolution or, if you prefer, this logic will to improve always tomorrow could give further complications of ultra-thin movement incorporated in wristwatches by the PA.
