ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE TOURBILLON CHRONOGRAPH 25th ANNIVERSARY
AUDEMARS PIGUET IS ONCE AGAIN SHOWING HOW THEY « MASTER THE RULES TO BREAK THEM »
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the iconic sports watch, the brand launched a surprising limited edition in pink gold & stainless steel (50 pieces each). It’s quite amazing to see how modern the timepiece looks. I love new bridges! They’re not only holding the barrels and the tourbillon but they also give a beautiful visual effect thanks to their rectangle apertures. By the way, the different levels present on the overall creation plays a big role in its modernity.
It doesn’t seems like it, at first but the creation is very well balanced! If you imagine an horizontal line crossing it from 9 to 3 o’clock, you’ll see that it’s like a mirror. All components face each other.
The integration of the famous AP screws into the sapphire glass is elegant and i like how the chronograph scale leaves the front row to the calibre 2947. It’s clearly an invitation to explore its « inside »
The back offer as much visibility on the movement as the front. I love the linear aspect of three of the wheels starting from the crown to the back of the tourbillon at 3 o’clock.
The integrated straps follow the same logic and offer a very comfortable feeling on the wrist as their are made of rubber.
Happy Anniversary, ROOTC !
