To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the brand’s Royal Oak Watch, Audemars Piguet has launched the Royal Oak Ultra-thin Hollow, which combines superb watchmaking craftsmanship, contemporary style and sporty atmosphere. The 950 platinum watch (theExtra-ThinOpenworkedRoyalOakWatch) is available in a limited edition of 40.
This watch, like the model introduced in 1972, uses a 39 mm diameter case with an octagonal bezel. The bezel is fixed with 8 white gold polished hexagon screws. The anti-reflective sapphire crystal is dark gray Hollow dial, the dial is decorated with white gold hour markers, fluorescent coated hands and ‘tapisserie’ check pattern, 3 o’clock position with a sapphire date window, and black date numerals. Through the hollow dial, you can admire the self-made 5222 self-winding ultra-thin movement built into the watch. This movement, which is only 3.05 mm thick, is completely hollowed out, even the hanging barrel. In addition to using modern minimalist lines for hollowing out the movement, the dark gray formed by electroplating gives the watch a modern look. All decorations (polished, satin-finished, pearl-polished, polished, matte-finished and brushed) on the bridge and board are hand-finished. The swing frequency is 19,800 times per hour and the power reserve is about 40 hours. 50 meters waterproof. Comes with 950 platinum folding buckle strap.
