You say you want a 44mm-wide Souverain Oak but you don’t need a Royal Pecan Offshore? Well, one option is to just opt for this Audemars Piguet Royal Cherry Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked. Sure, you need to invest in both the us platinum case and skeletonized as well as decorated chronograph tourbillon movement - but isn’t it worth it? SIHH 2016 sees a few platinum-cased Royal Oak watches, and a healthy assortment in gold. In fact , there is but one steel-cased standard Royal Maple for 2016 - and it isn’t low cost either. Probably the most accessibly-priced (relatively speaking) Royal Oak watches for 2016 are the new Royal Pine Offshore Diver Chronograph, however I digress. Let’s now talk about this particular very lovely new reference 26347PT. OO. D315CR. 01 Audemars Piguet Royal Walnut Tourbillon Wathe Openworked watch.
It is feasible for Audemars Piguet previously released a non-Offshore version of the Royal Pecan in a 44mm-wide case, yet I can’t seem to think of it. With that in mind, previous versions of the Regal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph may have actually had this larger case size because, in my recollection, they looked bigger - nevertheless I wasn’t measuring at the time. What is probably new, however , is producing the Noble Oak Tourbillon Chronograph with a beautiful skeletonized (openworked) switch and motion. There is absolutely no scarcity of new openworked watches from Audemars Piguet this year, although this particular model is a bit different for maintaining so much from the traditional call so as to preserve as much possibility of easy-reading as possible. That means the subsidiary dials are totally intact as well as the hour markers and also minute scale. Underneath, you see Audemars Piguet skilled decoration at its very best in the calibre 2936 movements which is creatively cut up for your viewing pleasure.
The beauty of openworking is how many approaches there are to the concept. Look at a range of different skeletonized Audemars Piguet watches, along with you’ll ask how the designers there continue to experiment in addition to play with various aesthetic solutions to the idea of beautifully cutting away at “unnecessary” parts of the movement metal. This approach focuses mostly on thin, beautifully curved lines and a standard emphasis on shape. There is no hand-engraving, but rather cleaned surfaces plus, of course , polished beveled edges. I happen to really like this specific look, even though I equally appreciate other skeletonization techniques as well. Chopard Mille Miglia Chronograph Replica

The calibre 2936 hand-wound activity is made up of 299 parts and even operates at 3Hz (21, 600 bph) with a power reserve of 72 hours. The actual movement is a rather thick 7. 6mm, which is most likely why Audemars Piguet designed this Supérieur Oak case to be 44mm, rather than, say, 41mm wide. It is possible that this is because the case needed to be thicker and the proportions of the Suprême Oak (very important to the actual design) would have been off if it looked too thicker compared to its width. Unfortunately, no automatic winding or power reserve indicator in the mobility, but it has the time with subsidiary seconds dial together with 30-minute wathe.
The 44mm-wide 950 american platinum eagle case in the Audemars Piguet Royal Cherry Tourbillon Timepiece Openworked is matched with a blue and pink-gold-accented dial and matching glowing blue alligator strap (with gold folding deployant). It is a minor theme for Audemars Piguet to mix steel or platinum and pink gold (on the dial) for timepieces this year in 2016 - a design decision I take no issue with. I am not sure, but it also looks like in addition to the pink precious metal hands as well as hour indicators, the skeletonized movement links might be within 18k red gold as well.
