I am very happy to see a brand new Royal Oak Concept watch. It is difficult to explain where this series fits the Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Watches collection. They are not Royal Oaks, they are not Royal Oak Offshores. Instead, they are highly futuristic high-end watches and another Royal Oak series.
There are some Royal Oak Concept watches. The first was released in 2002 as the 30th anniversary of the Royal Oak watch. Since then, a few watches have been released in several different versions. The latest model is the Audemars Piguet Replica Royal Oak Carbon concept tourbillon chronograph. Since the first Concept watch, the case design has been consistent. What changed was the material and complexity of the movement. The 2011 Royal Oak Concept Tourbillon GMT is one of the simplest versions, but its design is very elegant. It has time, tourbillon and GMT second time zone dial. At the bottom of the watch is a simple selection indicator for the crown (wind, adjustment, neutral). The letters “H, N, R” represent the French words “Heures, Neutre and Remontoir.” This is basically used to adjust the hours, neutral position and to wind the mainspring.
The Royal Oak Concept Tourbillon GMT has not yet been officially announced by Audemars Piget – so I don’t have all the details. The case should be 44 mm wide. I believe it is made of sandblasted titanium. The bezel is ceramic, polished and brushed top. In fact, the bezel is difficult to shoot. The camera flash causes the image to pick up all the particles in the brushed surface, but the texture appears to be more subtle.
You will also notice that the movement seems to be a ceramic bridge. Although the last iteration of the Royal Oak Concept used the forged carbon of Best Audemars Piguet Replica Watches, this time emphasized the ceramic. This is also because ceramics (various forms) will become popular materials in many AP watches in 2011 and beyond. Due to its original appearance and wear resistance, the material is coveted by AP and other brands. Brands are getting better at making ceramics – because it is well known that it is tricky at the construction stage.
I believe the crown and putter are also ceramic, very cool. Since 2002, the overall futuristic case design still looks great, I think it is suitable for the 2011 AP’s more understated look. In addition to the new materials, the case is not fundamentally different from the Tourbillon GMT. What is new is of course sports – I think it is one of the coolest looks out of the big house this year. The Associated Press wants to design as many symmetrical motions as possible. They performed well on the front and back of the sport. The tourbillon bracket is open and easy to see and is balanced by the GMT dial on the right. The mixture of steel and black elements in a synthetic ruby-like movement is beautiful. The hand-wound movement looks like two main barrels and should provide a long power reserve.
The pusher under the crown is used to adjust the GMT dial – this makes it very practical. In addition to the illuminator on the hand and the hour mark on the flange ring, the number on the GMT dial is also a lacquer finish – this is great. The back of the watch is of course a sapphire exhibition window that can see everything well. You will see “Fake Audemars Piguet Watches Royal Oak CS1″, which I believe is related to the design of the case. This may also be the official name of the watch – not yet uncertain.
Overall, this is a very cool, very elegant futuristic male watch. It is attached to a very high-end rubber strap and is likely to be part of a limited edition product (price matching). Please pay attention to these simple figures as soon as possible.
