AP added strength to strength by debuting a broad range of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore models at Geneva’s Palexpo. Leading the line is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak RD#2 Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar. The 41mm reference 26586PT is, for now, a concept watch. Its 6.3mm thickness makes the Royal Oak RD#2 the world’s thinnest automatic-winding perpetual calendar wristwatch. The caliber 5133 ultra-thin automatic movement is fashioned in-house by Audemars Piguet, and it measure a total of 2.89mm with perpetual calendar and base movement combined. The Royal Oak RD#2 features a full platinum bezel, case, bracelet, and clasp. Revered by watch collectors of all loyalties, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin 15202IP “Jumbo” adds several new dimensions to Audemars Piguet’s most important watch. The Royal Oak 15202IP sports a platinum bezel, a titanium case and bracelet, and a spectacular tapisserie dial with gradient blue fade. At the periphery of its “Petit Tapisserie” hobnail dial, dark navy – almost black – coloration dominates; as the eye migrates inward, the color shifts to cobalt, and then light silver-blue. This new Royal Oak “Jumbo” will be a low-production Audemars Piguet boutique exclusive. The Royal Oak Offshore family expands with new versions of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked 26407 in black ceramic with colored dial accents. The Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked measures a robust 44mm in diameter, and it features a traditional column wheel chronograph caliber 2943 with a 72-hour power reserve and a tourbillon regulator.
